kraken and nate

A couple people have asked how Kraken's doing. He's growing so fast. Can you believe this dog is less than six months old? I can't.

Kraken's fantastic with the kids. I was little nervous about getting such a high-energy dog (German Shepherds aren't particularly well-known for being great with kids), but he and Some Boy pal around all the time. And of course, Kraken and Nate are like two peas in a pod. Nate has always wanted a dog of his own – he's begged me to give the green light for years but I always insisted we get a house with a nice, big fenced area first.

Thank God for that.┬áThis dog isn't exactly what you call an “apartment dog.”
