For the past week and a half I've been taking care of Chad's - a friend of ours' - dogs. They are all three very large, but the most loving scary looking pups anyone could ask for. They'll give you a good howl if you want - thanks to their mother being a bit wolf-y, they'll rub against you until they knock you over, but then they look at you with these really golden, sharp eyes - and you know that they love you...or want to eat your face.
Gypsy has grown up with these guys and has nestled into a very nice annoying little sister roll. Even as a tiny pup she never once quavered at these mighty beasts or shied away - she walked right up to them and started barking at their noses and gnawing on their feet - and it's been as such ever since.
