When Danielle and Kyle Schweigers from Florida first brought their Akita puppy home in the Fall of 2017, they were for sure aware of all the advantages and disadvantages this breed will bring them. Not only did they know that these dogs are highly intelligent, but also that they grow pretty fast and big. And this is why they decided to immortalize his growth in pictures.

“We thought it was a creative and cute way to show that he’s our baby no matter how big he is,” Schweiger told The Dodo. “It has been an incredible ongoing sight to watch nonetheless!”

Bear – which is a name that couldn’t be more suitable for this amazing dog – was first photographed in Danielle’s arms when he was only 10 weeks old. The couple then took a similar photo for the next 6 months to document his growth. After six months living with the Schweigers, you can see how Bear barely fits in Danielle’s arms anymore in the last picture. The fascinating thing is that Bear hasn’t even reached his full size yet and he will continue to grow for a little while.

According to Danielle, Bear is a very cheerful dog and the whole family is completely in love with him. But he doesn’t realize what a giant he had become, so he still behaves like a playful puppy. “He is completely unaware of his size. He constantly knocks me over or tries to fit in my lap!” says Danielle.
