There's this new guy Kobe - a youngin (about 11 months) that we first met when we were out walking.
But mummy had arranged that unbeknownst to us, beforehand to see whether we might get along!
He needs a new home coz his hooman parents have split & neither wants him (how could that be possible)

So before you know it our 'bleeding heart' mama agreed to take him in for a week for a trial to see if we could all get along & meet his puppy energy needs.

Kobe is an 11 month old great dane x greyhound he's friendly, goofy & still learning how big he is - a typical puppy - but he does lie down to play with us little ones which is very nice & seems really responsive to training & learning good manners.

But that's all the behaviour mumbo jumba - from my point of view he's all right (I remain reserved) but he has a fun attitude & likes to play & looks quite pretty (hmm should I say handsome) & is very gentle almost wary around us little ones.
Might be okay - I'll have to see if I can get him to bark at the possums for me coz so far he hasn't really barked at all?
Can you spot us all here snoozing after a long walk?

Oh Greyhounds are the cuddliest dogs on earth, and Danes are lovely. I hope he's a keeper!

Looks like he's gonna fit in nicely. You're going to be a great big sister Bella!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi Bella,

I hope Kobi has found his forevers home. He looks pretty cooools!

I signed your photos guestbook. You have lots of friends and a neato blog.

My humans used to live in South Yarra. (In a galaxy fars, fars away.) Mom was a teacher trainer in Footscray and Dad worked in the Abbotsford brewery for the old Carlton United. They had a greats time there. They hope to get back one days.

kobe, does he play basketball like kobe bryant??

he's really tall. he reminds me of texas except texas is not that tall.

so, so far how you all been getting along? i didn't do much last weekend. my lazy hooman didn't take me to see my playmate (something abt someone was coming to see the house, we are selling the condo u see) but i say, they can't sacrifice my play time with their needs. :-(

wet wet licks

Hi Bella,
Your mummy has such a big heart!! Finally Kobe has a family who deserves him after he was abandoned by his previous family (who in my opnion do not deserve him at all!)
Happy playing!

ChaCha & Yuki said...

How could they give up Kobe? He looks soo sweet! Hope he is able to fit into your family Bella;)

BTW happy belated barkday to Kuki!!


Billy said...

Kobe looks just adorable! You and he will be great friends I am sure of it...seems like you already think he is quite the handsome one Princess Bella!

Hugs from Billy Boo:)

Jessie and Jake said...

Wow we hope you keep him. We are only allowed to have 3 dogs (and trust me - mama would but she can't afford it right now), but one day she wants to open her own place for dogs nobody wants.

So our mama thinks your mama is SUPER DUPER!


Amber-Mae said...

Greyhounds are beautiful dogs. Faith run beautifully like a Greyhound. Head goes down & legs go between each other while running at top speeds! My hoomans prefer if we doggies don't bark at all! Coz they find it too noisy for this neighborhood... Hehe!

Love licks,

Hi there Bella. Kobe looks a fine dog to me - I think me and him could be cool friends. Make sure you bring him along to my blog to say hi. He must be very tall, but he looks a bit of a softie like me. Your mommy must be a nice person.
