It’s National Puppy Day!

It seems like there are national days for just about everything–but puppies? Now that’s special! In honor of the day, I present to you a progression of Polly puppy pics. This is what happens over the course of a year, just 365 short days, when you’re a Great Dane.

Polly was five weeks old when she came to me from a hoarding situation. And one year later.

One year later. Gyp’s facial translation: “Rotten puppies!”

Polly is 2 years old now. What a joy she has been, a gift. It’s been a life of love, happiness, discoveries, and making new friends along the way. All the things a puppy’s life should be.

On behalf of puppies, dogs, and shelters everywhere: please adopt a dog or support your local shelter. Spay and neuter your pets. And as always, adopt don’t shop.

  1. Hi there! I love your blog, and Polly is gorgeous!

    I know this probably isn’t what people usually compliment your dog about, but I couldn’t help but notice how his paw has very tightly closed toes, just like the breed standard deems correct. I think I’ve never seen a Dane before with such a paw! I hope it’s not too odd of a request, but could you take some photos of his paws when he’s standing and some of his paw pads too, maybe one from the side etc.? I think it’d be a great example, as I’ve seen lots of Danes with “incorrect” feet (though of course, that’s doesn’t mean they are not equally loveable goofballs 🙂 )

    • I’m so sorry I missed this earlier. Thank you for the wonderful comments about Polly. She’s not a registered Dane and I have no idea of her breeding. She was 5 weeks old when we got her from a very bad situation. Yes, I will see about getting some shots of her feet. Thanks again.
