Good Day Everyone and Happy (belated) New Year!
I've been lurking on the message boards here for the past month or two and I have first have to say "THANK YOU" to all of the great discussions and information that is available. I have really enjoyed the exchanges.
My wife and I are a new parents to an 8-week old Black Standard Poodle (female) named Sasha. She joins our home from a great family/breeder in our area that provided us access to visit all of the pups since 3 weeks of age - so we really had a chance to observe all of the puppies and developed a bond with many as well. As you can imagine it was difficult to choose just one (lol).
Sasha joins our "pack" that also includes an female American Eskimo (Chloe) dog that is almost 10 years old. Our initial concern with introducing Sasha (or any puppy for that matter) is how Chloe would respond to another dog in the house. Happily, everything went well and both are developing a really nice bond with each other.
On tap for Sasha over the coming weeks & months, is Puppy Kindergarten; Obedience and Agility courses. My ultimate goal and hope is the Sasha can one-day be classified as a Canine Good Citizen ... but one step at a time - I don't want to get ahead myself
I have a website chronicling Sasha's & Chloe's "adventures" together (and how my wife and I are handling the little-tornado through the house as well).
Enjoy and I look forward to getting involved on the discussions.
