    He really is a good boy. I can't wait to see him a few months from now. Seems like every day he gets bigger and prettier. The only problem I have with him (other than stalking stranger in the yard, but that is okay [​IMG] ) is that he is so much bigger than the girls. I have mostly small mediteranean breeds, a few small RIR, etc. He is twice their size if not more. He is gentle and I haven't had any problems yet....but I sure wish there wasn't such a huge size difference.

    Then again, him being huge is part of his charm. Big ol clumsy galoot [​IMG]

    I thought he was an Australorp when he was younger but started getting suspicious as he got bigger and bigger and bigger........he is actually a Jersey Giant. Yellow bottoms of his feet and all.

    He is really gorgeous when the sunlight hits him.
