So maybe you have been wondering where I've been....or not. lol I have been doing some elderly sitting, a whole week-was glad to get back to my own bed, but made some decent money doing it. So that kept me busy.
Since DS is heading back to college, he insisted that I needed a dog that will get big. We have a little Jack Russell and she is enough work for me. She has diabetes so I have to give her two shots a day. But last Monday we were talking and DS was bugging me about getting another dog. Nope, don't want one and if I would get one I would want a German Shepherd I told him. Well wouldn't you know it, on his way to work on Tuesday, DS see a new sign up at a house advertising GS puppies for sale. Of course as soon as he got to work he had to text me about them. Then he makes an appointment to go see them later that evening. Great. DS was hoping that I would fall in with one of them and would bring one home with us that evening. Actually he was betting on it! Well guess who feel in love.....nope not me, although they were really cute, it wad DS. So I said, lets just put a deposit down on one and go home and get things ready, hoping instead to just talk about it, weigh the pros and cons so to speak. But DS wasn't taking the hint, he said he would go to town and get everything the puppy would need. Great again. So we left there with this little cutie.
She is 8 weeks old, well soon to be nine weeks old. Her dad is huge, over 115 lbs. Her mother is a Blue Shepherd and when bred with another regular Shepherd, the pups take on the traits of the dad. When bred with another Blue, they take on the Blue Shepherd traits of course. We were told by the owners that little little cutie will get as big as her dad and I believe it! She is already way big for her age. It is when she walks that you realize that she is still a baby. Her feet are so huge, she has a hard time walking and is very doppy. lol We named her Savannah, it seem to fit her. I had forgotten how much work goes into caring for a puppy!! It's like an infant and trust me there isn't much sleeping going on right now. But she has already brought a lot of joy into this house. Pockets, the Jack Russell doesn't always do well with other dogs, she is old and she is used to being queen of the house. lol But they are getting along much better than I thought, although Pocket's will give Savannah a "back off bite/growl" when she doesn't want to play. Here are the two girls napping.
So this is what is keeping me really busy. I can't take my eyes off her a second because of the teething. So I'm curious to know what you think, do you think it was "fate" that the sign was put up???? I kinda' took it as a sign.....
