I brought Toby to my parents' place for a 'photoshoot' - here are a few of the pics!

When we got Toby we were told he was a lab/rott x...but I agree with you, he looks more doberman than rott! He is just too dainty!

and oh yeah - is he cute! He's lucky, too, cause he gets away with murder sometimes based on it! :love:

You'll have to see as he gets bigger if he's really a mix... To me, aside from the ears and maybe the tail (the thickness- the curliness is dobie), there's not much that isn't dobie. It's better that he's a dobie and not a rottie. For no reason in particular other than just because Dobies ROCK!! :D

He's not as sleek and shiny as other dobie's I've met. He seems to have more fur than your average dobie...and he doesn't seem as knobby around his ankles and knees (does that make sense?)

Whatever he is...he is our cute Toby first and foremost! :love:

Here's another - in mid-lunge for a carrot :)

and here's another...where his fur is more noticable. Oops! Is that a plant he is munching on! My mom better not see this picture!

Yes! and he's changing all the time! He was such a stocky little guy when we first got him that it was easy to believe he had rotty in him...but now...I dont believe it!

Wow look how big those paws are still!! :)

Boo was the same way when we got him- one day when I am rich, I'll buy a scanner and scan the pics of him when we first got him and they said he was fully grown. He looked like a small newf. So plumpy and goofy. And then his legs doubled in length, his hair was replaced by shorter fur, and his body got really long. :D Lucky for the SPCA and for Boo, my policy with doggies is the bigger the better. :)

:pawprint: Are they really still that big? I thought he was getting to his full size! Oh well, lucky for us I think big is beautiful, too! :thumbs up

It's so much fun watching him grow

The carrot is hard to see, but if you look closely in the mmmm carrots! pic, you can see some carrot bits in the latticework at his feet.

And it's an itty bitty carrot - so my fingers are hiding it in the lunge picture!

Carrots never last too long...munch munch and they are gone!

I guess I'll have to schedule another 'photoshoot' with dad!

If my mom let's us return...Toby tried to cool off in her bed of goose necks(? - nice big plants with a bunch of little white flowers that form together to hang down and make a kind of goose neck shape). She gave me a withering look and said, I've been waiting all summer for those to flower" and went inside.

ooops :o
