My puppy has finally arrived! We are so happy that Justice is finally here.
He’s actually really big already, weighing in at about sixteen pounds at eight weeks old. He’s a Bullmastiff though, which means he’s going to be about the size of a horse in a year. By the way, these are the biggest bowls they sell at Target. He’s going to be a big boy.
I’ve always liked big dogs… I have a theory that the smaller the dog, the more they yap. I’ve had Justice for twelve hours, and he has yet to make a noise. Plus, we have a giant house and a super large yard. We have the room for a large dog.
Bullmastiffs were bread to help gamekeepers catch poachers in England. They would silently sneak up and tackle the poacher, holding them to the ground until they could be arrested. The breed is known as the Gentle Guardian because they have unique way of realizing when there is danger and alerting their family.
During harvest, I spend a lot of time home alone. Not only will I have Justice for company, but he is also likely to scare off any intruders. One hundred and forty pound dogs have a way of scaring individuals for some reason.
For now, the puppy training is going well. He’s slept the majority of the day and I’m watching him for all signs that it is time to take him outside.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more pictures. Take care,
