I admit, I have never had a large breed dog before during the dreaded puppy stage. Stanley is teaching me quite a bit about big puppies. There is a big difference between large breed puppies and small breed puppies besides the size of their poop.
For instance, he couldn't wait for me so he decided to help himself to a snack. Yes, it's a Hostess Twinkie. Somehow he got into the pantry and decided that was his snack of choice and managed to get it off the 3rd shelf (which is a long way up). He was really happy to wait for me while I grabbed my camera. I think he knew he was on the wrong side of the doggie fence and was waiting for me to open the gate so he could eat it on the other side.
