Born the Size of His Nose
This is Koda at 2 weeks of age, sleeping soundly in the palm of James’ hand. This picture was take mid-December 2010. After considering all kinds of large breed dogs, we decided to check out this Golden Pyrenees (Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix). He slept the whole time of our visit. His brother on the other hand, barked the whole time… we knew we wanted a boy and of the two, we gladly picked the sleeper.
We made an excellent decision, Koda as it turns out is the most laid back relaxed dog one can get. He’s very calm and the perfect family dog. I spent a lot of time with him as a puppy, following both some professional dog training we had with a prior dog, as well as I read up on Caesar’s advice. (Dog whisperer extraordinaire Caesar Milan of course…). And as a result we couldn’t really ask for a better dog.
Naturally he grew…
and (all together now…) “GREW!”
At his now full grown size, we can see that as a puppy he was about the size of his full grown nose now… incredibly really.
At four years old he’s still a mama’s boy.
