We're going

to have a new addition in our family. No, I'm not pregnant....lol We've decided to take the plunge again on Dave's instistence and get another dog. Actually, we will be getting the same type of dog that we had before -- a German Shorthair pointer or a bird dog. I think, or at least I hope, this will be a better experience for all of us especially since the kids are a little older. It was too hard for me to take care of the Rusty when the kids were little. He required lots and lots of attention and I just didn't have it in me. We found him a great home to go to, but Dave has been whining a lot lately about giving his dog up. He now has let the cat out of the bag by saying he didn't really want to give Rusty away, but only did so because I insisted. Uh, okay, but you had a voice in the matter, MISTER, and I didn't see you saying NO.

We've been feeling really guilty lately just thinking about Rusty. He really was a good dog. He just had a lot of goofy things about him like eating socks and plastic bags!!! He loved kids and was a great watch dog. I miss him, too!

Well, this time it's going to be different. I will have the patience and this little guy will be trained at obedience school. I told Dave that is the one condition I am making that he will take him and train him. So on that note, here's the little guy we've picked and if all works out like it should, we will be picking him up on Saturday. He'll be six weeks old and is just so darn cute!! We've decided to name him Cooper.

Obedience school is a must for me with any dog. Really it trains the oweners to do what they need to. I just love puppies. Have fun!!

OMGosh, there is *nothin'* cuter than a GSP puppy!!! I grew up with them and now have one myself :) Obedience school is a must especially for GSP's who have soooo much energy and don't "grow up" until they're around 5 LOL
