WOW, this guy!!! Help me welcome Sir Lancelot, also known as Lance, to the S.C.A.R.F Project club. What a great personality…and.so.many.faces…a few of these need captions! He loves to ride in the truck and gets much attention. He LOVES to run and chase his toys…and of course, a plop in the stream after playtime. This 168lb gentle giant and his mom were a blast to photograph and spend the day with.
Cortney and Lance, thank you both for supporting the S.C.A.R.F Project and making it a wonderful day! A donation will be made to Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue on your behalf. Thank you both, again!
Below is Lance’s story as told by his mom, Cortney, and she has included a photo of him when she brought him home as a pup:
“I’d been debating for a couple of months adopting a dog in the summer of 2012. A co-worker started emailing me pictures from the pound and then came a picture from an Alaska Classified’s posting of 5 little St. Bermastiff puppies lined up on an outdoor swing set. It was too hard to pass up, and after a concert at the Alaska State Fair I met the breeder in Wasilla and picked up this 18-lb adorable puppy I had chosen a few weeks earlier. I really didn’t take the vet seriously when they told me he would grow at 5 lbs/week, but he did. I think he’s finally reached his adult weight at 169 lbs. Sir Lancelot “Lance” has been by my side the last 3 ½ years. We have hiked the Winner Creek Trail, strolled up to Byron Glacier numerous times, hiked to Thunderbird Falls, played at numerous dog parks in Anchorage, swam at AK K9 Aquatics, played in Seward and have many more adventures when he’s not chasing tennis balls or one of his 30 or so toys. I don’t know how I got so lucky that day in August. He’s such a sweet and loveable dog and keeps the toes warm at night.”
