Hi new member here with two loveable Saints!!
« on: October 08, 2006, 08:03:29 am »
Hi, just wanted to introduce myself (and my dogs). Our family has two Saints (and one more we're planning on getting). We have Simon, 16 months and Heidi, 8 months. They are our two adopted children along with our 3 actual kids. haha. We are planning on breeding Saints but have had a setback with Simon. He developed adult generalized demodex mites. So we can no longer use him in our breeding program. We are just crushed because he is so beautiful and so well-tempered. He would make a wonderful daddy! But we don't want to breed any problems into our line so we have to have him neutered. So he just gets to be spoiled without doing anything. haha Heidi is a sweetie also, she just has a neurotic chewing problem. haha But we love her just the same. We are planning on getting another male withing a few months. I have already talked to a breeder and everything seems like a go so cross your fingers! We can't wait! I love this site and am so glad that I ran across it. It has a lot of valuable info. Thanks!

Great to meet you and your family!  I have a female smoothie... she's 11 weeks old. I am sooooo in love already!  They are such wonderful dogs; Best of luck with your breeding program! You'll have your hands full!  :D

BPO is such a great place. I learn something here everyday, even though I might not always contribute. I feel a bit "green" when it comes to big dogs. I have had herding dogs... crazy busy run-all-day-dogs, and so I find myself in uncharted territory with Bella! She's so completely different (but in an absolutely wonderful way). 

More pictures of your pooches...  ;)

Thanks everyone for the welcome! I've added some pics to my puppies' pawprints. We have waited a long time to have Saints and we couldn't imagine anything different now. It's so funny when people come over, they're always like "wow! your dogs are huge". I guess we don't even notice how much bigger they are. They are just our love bugs.Thanks again for the great welcome and here are some pics of Simon and Heidi (and us). By the way, incase no one noticed, there's evidence of Heidi's chewing habit in my profile pic. haha. Thank goodness she's getting over it!

Welcome to BPO!!!  I get so excited everytime I see a new saint - and you have 2 of them!!  LOL!   Great lookin' pups!

I'm Penny and the handsome fella in my avatar is Teddy, my 9 month old baby.  I know what you mean about not seeing how big they are getting - Teddy looks like a normal dog to me!!
Every girl needs a Teddy bear!

Welcome to the sight. Your Saints are gorgeous. I am Paige. Currently there are 3 Pyrs, 3 Danes a Newf mix and a few littles in our house hold. Two of the Danes are recent rescues and one of the Danes is going to another BPO member in the near future.
