Meet Zeke

Look what just joined our family-  Zeke the baby Great Dane!

It was super hard to get good pictures of him because he is all over.

A moment of peace and quiet- for me!

This gives you an idea of how big he is, just turned 8 weeks old.

We've had him for 5 days, and unfortunately, 3 of those days he has had 1 or 2 accidents in the house.  Two of the days I can blame on Chris for not watching him well, but the other day was mine.  I am totally freaking out that with all these accidents his hope for potty training is quickly going out the door.  I've looked up a ton on the net, and it sounds like he still has hope, but I am super paranoid!

We are also doing crate training, as well as umbilical cord training during the day.  See that blue leash?  He is always wearing it in the house and usually, I am always holding it unless we are actively playing with him.  If we are playing with him then it comes off, but otherwise, he has a 6 foot leash and where I go, he goes.  Apparently, it is supposed to be excellent for training because he can never get away from you, although this morning as I was opening the door for the boys to come out of bed, he took that moment to pee in the hallway, so it's not fool proof.

I think I need to step up my potty training a dog game.


  1. He's awesome! I can't wait to meet him! We'll have to get him together with Crixus.
