Tink turned 11 weeks old on Saturday (2020-10-17). He weighs 31.3 pounds, making this the week he’s gained the most so far. My eldest, Seb, managed to capture the “old soul” that resides in this 11-week-old body.

Tink is on the “smaller” side for a Great Dane and an English Mastiff. I wonder if the Neapolitan Mastiff side is showing itself here because they are, relatively speaking, somewhat smaller weight-wise: 8 weeks: 19.8 lbs. 9 weeks: 22.3 lbs. 10 weeks: 24.9 lbs. And smaller here means …

Tink at 6 weeks, 1 day (2020-09-13) is 13 lb 0.8 oz. That is double Tink’s 4 week old weight! That means Tink will be about 26 lb when we pick him up in two weeks.

Tink at 4 weeks old (as of Saturday, August 29 2020) is 6 lb 13.9 oz. He is currently the “runt” of the litter though they are all within 1.5 lb of each other. Here is Tink viciously attacking the human trying to care for him.

Tink “the baby hippo” is 5 lbs 8.9 oz at 3.5 weeks old. Tink’s eyes and ears are open, tail wags, plays with siblings, but mostly sleeps and grows.

Tink is two weeks old today. He’s at 3 lb 9.5 oz. His eyes are open and he walks like a mean drunk.

Tink is now one week old and has already mastered the lazy, inappropriate dog sprawl. Good boy. He weighs 2 lbs 4 oz.

Life is Fragile.

One of Tink’s littermates passed away today. It was a freak accident that can happen with a giant mother and a one pound puppy. It was quite the emotional journey with the community around these pups. In a few more days the chance of that type of accident happening will go way down since these …

Meet Kalmar Tink!

Puppy based decisions were made today. Meet Kalmar Tink! He’s the one in the silver collar taking a nap admist the chaos (a good sign). He’s 3 days old in this picture and just shy of two pounds. We can bring him home in about 8 weeks. There might be an overload of blurry puppy pictures …

You can have any color you want as long as its black!

One of these remarkable little pups will be ours. There are two blue merle females, 1 harlequin male, and 3 black males. Since we have 4th pick, we’re assuming the merles and the harliquin will be snatched up so one of those handsome obsidian devils will join Skye. We’ll likely know for …

Begin Again - The Camacho Weblog

So much has happened this year that it is hard to recap it all in writing. We may try do that in a podcast, but I need to write about what’s happening without it being a burden. With that in mind I need two things. First, I need a good starting point or a place to “begin again.” I …
