Marley





We thought we would give you all the chance to meet Marley. He is our 18 month old Great Dane and our baby of sorts... aka spoilt rotten! We adopted him from the Great Dane Rescue Society of Queensland. For those who are wish to know, he is 35 inches at the shoulder and still growing. When we last got him on the scales he was 60 kilos (132 pounds) but that was a few months ago now, he has grown a bit since then.
These are some of the pictures I took of Dustin and Marley playing together yesterday. Marley has a glow in the dark ball which Dustin holds above his head and Marley jumps to get it... but as you can see from some of the pictures on mid leap Marley's head is well and truly higher than Dustin's.
He loves nothing more than playing games and curling up on the couch with us to watch TV.
According to the neighbours he has been starting to whine and carry on during the day whilst we are away at work and so Dustin and I are considering adopting another Dane as a friend for Marley. Besides, we can never have enough pets!

I just, once again, want to go on record as saying that is NOT a dog. I love you and all, but what you have there is a horse. Seriously.

(I love seeing pics of your house!)

Mom said she couldn't get this to post, so I'm doing it by proxy!

"Beautiful baby. Do you kids really keep that horse in the house ? Don't let him get hungry or Cindy will disappear. If Cindy does disappear for a few minutes, Dusty move the dog as he has probably squished her. Love Mom"

Haha!! Yes Mom, Marley stays in the house. Except when we go to work, then hey has the garage and the backyard. He actually doesn't eat that much; we give him about 3 scoops of food at night, with 2 eggs cracked over it, (for the protein for his legs) and a couple of chicken necks. Sometimes we change one of those for yoghurt (to prevent bloat) instead. He's got his couch that he sleeps on in the study, and another one in the garage. They were free out of an old caravan... Can't imagine life without him inside with us now....

Our neighbor has a Dane. Their daughters (1 & 3) went as cowgirls for Halloween. Guess who went as a horse?
