I interupt the radio silence to introduce…
Technically his full name is “Poe Hamster.” Poe as in Edgar Allan. Because Bryan loves Edgar Allan Poe as a writer and Poe was from Baltimore (where we grew up) and also Poe the dog was born in October – so it was a slightly creepy name we could both live with as an alternative to Bryan’s first choice for a name: “Zombie.”
And Hamster? Um. Declan kinda insisted on it. I have NO IDEA where he gets his penchant for weird names.
Anyway, Poe is a Bernese Mountain Dog with 1/8th Great Pyrenees mixed in to help him live longer. So, yes, that means he is gonna be HUGE. At 10 weeks, we think he is already about 12 pounds. But the good news is, Berners are especially lazy for giant breed dogs. Perfect for lazy owners like us.
Here are some other photos of the cutest puppy ever, and you can bet more will be added daily.
So far, so good. The first night was rough… but he’s already doing pretty well at getting outside for bathroom business and clearly loves Bryan to death. Which is good because that is who is going to take him for walks and clean up his poop.
great dog and great name!
Oh how absolutely GORGEOUS is that dog!
You already know how I feel about Poe. The fuzzycute kills me.
I think I heard somewhere that Greay Pyrenees are very gentle dogs, so hopefully he’ll be a gentle giant. 🙂
he is a sweetie and i love the way he just looks up to Declan in those pics!
merry holidays sweetie. looks like i am gonna have to get a dog too, so i can be the ultimate blog stalker!
He’s adorable!! I love Berners, and hope to get one eventually.
Have fun 🙂
Oooh, too cute! We are about 4 days into new puppy land at our house too. They are so fun and crazy at this age! Can I get a witness that puppies are harder than newborns? (my husband thinks I’m crazy) I mean, babies snuggle in,sleep all the time, and have diapers, and puppies have 4 big muddy feet and no diapers. I’m just sayin’…
He’s gorgeous! My neighbors have a Burmese Mountain dog and he makes me want a puppy, but sadly I’m allergic.
We’re getting sort of weak in the dog department and will be breaking down fairly soon. Poe does not make withstanding puppydom any easier. He’s delish.
oh lord! so cute!
Oh Wow! That is the cutest puppy ever! A Gentle Giant is how I’ve heard them described.
Wonderful photos – can’t wait to see him growing up.
Yay for you!
I love him!!
He’s just adorable! Those first few months are hard, but with Declan helping out, it should make it a bit easier maybe? He’s going to be a great addition to your family!
I am most definitely a cat person, but Poe is SO CUTE!
My brother has a Great Pyrenees and I can almost ride him. Declan is going to have a lot of fun growing up with him!
Puppies are the best. He’s gonna be a big one. What a lucky boy to have gotten Poe!
Oooooh he is so cute! I want a puppy toooooooo!
Oh. My. God. SO CUTE!
Such cuties! Both of them. 🙂
Yeah, Declan is having fun with the Kung Fu Panda connection too!
He’s so cute! Can hardly wait to meet him!
OMG you did it! WOW! He’s adorable.
How big is he gonna get?!
Um, I am scared to say. Like 50-100 pounds.
For a minute, I thought you named him after Po from Kung Fu Panda! 🙂 I guess Edgar Allen will do – from another huge Poe fan! 🙂 Congrats on the new addition!
puppy poe! he is so cute!
Congratulations to you all on the new addition! He is adorable, simply adorable! Have fun with him! 🙂
Very much adorable.
i can’t wait to meet him!!
I love love love puppies. He’s adorable 😀
So adorable that he makes me want a puppy, which is insane because I can barely handle the (lovable, stinky, troublemaking) dog we have now!
