Meet my new "grand-son"
« on: March 14, 2021, 06:11:45 PM »
Daughter #3 will never have children due to chemo.
She had a Boxer for 12 years and has been empty since the grand-pup passed over a year ago.
Yesterday she drove 12 hours to pick up our new Grand-son (pup)
Meet River! A German shorthair.
I think He is one handsome guy... But I may be a little bias. ;)

I hope he fills her life with happiness; not much into dogs myself (had to put up with too many strays for too long) but know that they mean a lot to some folks.
Congrats on the new family member  :D

Jessie... I live out in the sticks as well.
a "stray" shows up occasionally.
we name them on the first day.
"Pearl" was the biggest yellow lab I have ever seen... she hung out about a year and then "poof" was gone... before that was Sable, a beautiful Huskie. she only stuck around for one winter time was gone.
Skeezicks was a terrier mutt.. showed up but was on a mission he only stuck around a few days.
Then there was Dutches. She was a beautiful long legqed hound I so wanted to keep. But she had other plans and left after week.

LOL! Well if they were good-natured like the ones you had visit; I might feel differently. When I caught the pitbull-lab mix looking one stalking me on the trail cam, I lost any good feelings toward strays... We did have a beagle with a bum leg that came through a couple years back; finally caught him-had to keep him overnight until we could figure out who the owner was-he was okay.  :D Of course; he liked me better anyone else in my family; so I couldn't help but like him back.  ;D
Enjoy the new grand-pup; hope you get to meet him in-person soon.

Scott

i think you will be very happy with River once you meet in person. My first family pet as a very young child was a German short hair that my Dad had that he hunted quail with in Massachusetts. I remember "Rusty" very well since I took my first quail hunting trip with my Dad and Rusty at 4 years old and was hooked ever since.

They are great family dogs and very protective as well as excellent bird dogs. I remember Rusty pointing with right front leg raised and tail stretched out straight when he found a covey of quail waiting for my Dad to give the flush them out hand signal to him. Its like he was frozen in time till my Dad waved him to flush. Hunted with Rusty for many many years.

Good old memories for sure.

Adorable pupper Scott. Their breath smells great until they dig up a kitty munchy buried in the ground. He'll be spolt rotten at your place in no time. Maybe he'll get a few squirrels to his record too.
There is much needed hope for the future. Our world is not falling out of place it's falling into place just as foretold. https://christinprophecy.org/
