Hi. This is my first post here but I'm sure not my last. We get our puppy Friday and will probably need lots of advice in the future. She won't be our first puppy but our first full GSP. We do have a GSP (gasp!!!!!) Lab mix and he is a great dog. For a mommas boy. LOL So I got to pick out daddys girl so we could spend some time chasing some birds. I'll write some more after we pick her up. With a 5 hr drive ahead of us I am sure we will have a bit to talk about.
Welcome to the wonderful world of long legs & missing socks. Enjoy your pup & welcome to the forum.
Congratulations. And with a 5 hour drive you will have something to tlak about. When we picked ours up she was so snuggly that I decided to hold her on the way home instead of putting her in the crate. About half an hour into the drive she started to make these retching, gagging sounds. "Stop the car! Stop the car!" Husband always asks questions first and reacts last. Puppy vomited all over my shirt. Puppy gets put in kennel in the back of the van. About 15 minutes later a stong recognizible smell wafts forward from the rear of the van. When we got home we discovered that we now had a German Sh*thaired Pointer. She was huddled in the far end of the crate and would not even look at us. I scooped her up in a towel, put her in the sink and gave her her first bath. When I wrapped her in a towel and cuddled her that little wet head was right against my neck and we have been best friends ever since. Your adventure is just starting. They are the most lovable goofy dogs you will ever own.
Welcome & Congrats!!
Well our trip was pretty uneventfull. 3 potty breaks and a few trips to the front seat and the rest was puppy nap time. She is a hoot when she starts to play with our other dogs. The first night after the ride home was 2 hrs of hard hard play. Finally had to put her on the puppy bed to get her away from the others and she conked out for about 5 hrs. Hasn't shown the normal seperation crying that most go through. I guess it's because she has the other dogs to be around. They seemed to tolerate her the first couple of days better than yesterday. Actually saw them try to hide from her when they wanted to nap. LOL. Been pretty busy with the honey do list so I will post a pic when I remember to.
Congrats on the new puppy, now it's time for some pictures
