hello every one this is Arkyd's Brother Eli
The evil one. we got the luck of getting to keep in touch with 8 out of the 12 pup in his litter
but mainly Eli and Coda
cant get no pics of Coda cuz the owner is annoyed that her is smaller even tho its a girl (silly head)

I'll try getting some better pics i know my mums got some good uns cuz Eli is a poser

(p.s. behind Eli is Griz a lab/aussie shepherd he was the coolest lookin puppy check him out at )

great pics and nice lookin dog

my pup like it under the tree but sleeping in a wreath is superb

i guess you got the print for this years Christmas cards lol

he got the pup at 8 weeks cuz he wanted a border collie but couldnt find a purebred locally the people who he got her from said she had been wormed.
but in my opinion she wasnt 8 weeks old she looked more like 6
they were hickerbillies. and i warned him to get her to the vet

but i'll phone the vet see what they say

ok before i start this isn't a "my friend Dave has herpes story" , but my brother in law phoned today to tell me his 14 week old lad/border collie mix just crapped out a whole load of worms now I've got two questions

1.this dog is Arkyd's play friend do i need to get him checked?   I mean Arkyd is up to date on everything, he's also  had his nuts chopped cuz he isnt purebred.

2.My wife says that his dog could be in some serious s**t if shes crapping them out, i mean i know she isn't a vet but could she be in trouble?

ur by adult do you mean the adult large breed formula or just adult food?

I'm thinking when his current bag is up we'll switch

Arkyd didn't like the waves when he was a pup we took him to a smaller lake inland and he was swimming like a champ
but then again we did have him with the swimaholic jack russel
which helped him because he just followed him straight in

From day one me and the wife have stopped this, its not a good thing, whenever Arkyd has a treat, toy ,chew or even his food at any time me and my wife HAVE to be able to take it away thats how it must be
To do this when he was young we asked him 'can i have this',no matter what it was if he growled he got a quick scruff tug and a "NO" when he let us we made him know he did good and returned it to him
If he goes to get anything that we don't allow he learned "Leave it" quickly.

From what i've learned they are cuddly to a degree, ours like to lie down near you on the floor but doesn't really enjoy to sit with us, and at night theres no chance for one its just too hot for em and secondly i don't know if i want 150lbs of fur sleeping with me when he gets big

But on the flipside sometimes he'll follow my wife around the house moaning and groaning , she finally worked out that he didn't need to go out not hungry not playful he jus wanted a big old hug

When we got Arkyd the breeder told us to feed him on large breed formula for puppies, and our vet and the humane society said that was a good choice

The dog himself his amazing housebroke in a day and a half
He picks up on tricks so quick and we had him around 2 and 3 year olds and even as the big clumbsy puppy he is he was so gentle

Hello in the summer me and my wife got a newfie mix we called him Arkyd (our kid) his dad was an AKC 150lb newfie and his mum was a black lab st Bernard mix she weighed 110lbs and was bout 27 inches tall.
To be honest unless i told you, you wouldn't have a clue he was mixed.
but any way i was wondering if he sounds like hes gonna be big, i browsed the net and not found any weight guide for the breed hes just turned 5 months weighs 74lbs and stands 23 inches tall at the shoulders. does this sound right????
