Loup is one of the seven Malamute pups our girl Solo had last October. I was surprised that she had that many pups because it was her first litter and she really wasn’t very big. But there they were. Six boys and one girl.
We knew we’d keep the female and then two of the males. So the others were sold. Maximus Golashes (named by a very young child) ended up in a wonderful home with children, active parents and awesome grandparents. Eragon was loved for a while by a remarkable young lady whose family suddenly came on hard times. She made the difficult decision to give him up and we welcomed him back to our home. Tubbs is now loved by a little girl who he adores. And then there is Loup. Originally I called him Einstein because, well he wasn’t. He has a stellar home with Stephen, a friend of mine and his children Jeffrey and Raven. He wanted a big dog and well, he got one!
It’s amazing what a difference a week can make!
Solo is a huge dog but loves small spaces and will cram herself into the tiniest spots. Her favorite is to shimmy her way under the coffee table. Only problem is that when she stands up so does the table! As you can see, Loup has taken after her.
And then Loup began to grow in earnest.
Kind of like Clifford the Big Red Dog!
He still likes small spaces.
Like all Malamutes he loves snow.
He reminds me a great deal of his grandpa Cody in this picture.
Loup also has hobbies like watching tv.
And wrestling with Stephen.
And having a nap with Stephen.
He was neutered last month. Eight months old and 104 lbs before surgery. 102 lbs after surgery. Hee, hee, hee.
