A handsome fellow

The previous post featured Lorelei, with a taste of Otto...I thought I would do this post with pictures of him from the same day.  Here he is...I don't recall why he had that look...maybe cause he had his harness on and was on the lead....

Now this is better...just the collar...just taking it easy in the front yard.  Isn't he handsome!
In case you are wondering, he is actually watching Sarah to see what she is doing...

He is happy just being with us.  He is not huge, but weighs about 70 pounds.  Their neighbors to one side have a couple girls that Lorelei likes to play with and also a couple dogs that he likes to play with.

Then a couple houses down the other way are two more kids.  And also a dog lives there, a Vizsla.  She gets out of her yard, comes and jumps the fence into Sarah's back yard and plays with him about 15 minutes.  By then he is worn out, and she jumps the fence to go make other visits.

The thing with him, he would dearly love to be a lap dog.  All I have to do is look at him a certain way and here he comes and tries to get in my lap.  Depending on where I am, I sometimes let him.  With Sarah, it is the same.  Especially if she gets this one quilt out...he considers it an open invitation to sit with her.

Edited to add:

I was looking back through old post of him...look at how young he was...this was before Lorelei...when Sarah and Jeremy lived just 15 minutes away.  Taken in April of 2008!

Oh, he's such a good-looking dog, and the perfect size! Nice, shiny coat.

Back in the early 1990s, Mike and I had a 150-pound female Great Dane. She thought she was a lap dog, too!

Wow - Lorelei sure looks like her Mom! Otto is a handsome boy.

Handsome dog indeed . . . Big dogs like to lap sit as much as the little ones . . . at least that has been my experience!

WOW! Sarah and Lorelei look so much alike!

He is a handsome dog and I am not saying that because he and my Bingo look so much alike. I just love the smooth shiny coat. When I put Bings harness on he knows it is for business--a walk--he just marches along. Bingo has that look too. I must send you a pic. He is a brindle color so there's a difference.

Rose, Otto is so beautiful! And I can see where Lorelei gets her good looks, Sarah is beautiful.

He's a beautiful dog! Such a rich brown color! He looks to be at least part pit. Our daughter and her family have two part-pits. They are the sweetest dogs on the planet if they are loved from birth! They always get such a bad rap!
