There will soon be a third little guy living here in the Wilson home! We’re getting a puppy!!! I am so excited, and just going nuts having to wait to meet him and bring him home. 🙂
We have always talked about getting a dog someday soon. And have been saying ‘someday soon’ for quite some time now. Will has wanted a Pointer/Hunting dog and has looked forward to going bird hunting with the furry friend. I am excited to go hunting with the two guys, and to have a walking/running partner on a daily basis. Camping and hiking will be all the more fun with him along too.
So we’re getting a German Wirehair Pointer, male puppy. I am about to start studying up a lot on this breed and puppy obedience/training.
Turns out Will had all of this up his sleeve for the past little while and he was thinking he’d try to surprise me. A few days ago I stumbled upon something that gave it away… and so the
cat dog was out of the bag. Oh well, it’s still a surprise that he has found one and we are getting one soon! And I’m actually really glad we can now pick out ‘the one’ together.
While at work, Will found out about some German Wirehair puppies for sale from this family, The Silver Buckle Kennels, and it turned out that Will’s Foreman/friend had got one of his Pointer dogs from this same family when he was young. The family has been breeding these dogs since the 1960’s! So unbeknownst to me, Will and his Foreman went to see the puppies one night after work, each eager to pick one out. So I guess Kurt has the 2nd pick of the females, and we have the 1st pick of the males! How awesome is that, that we’ll have a brother and sister, so they can be together sometimes, and go hunting together.
They are now just barely three weeks, and have to be with mom for 7 weeks so we have a month to get ready, study up, and bring him home!
There are 11 puppies in this litter!! We have the first pick of the six males, all of different colorings and markings.
I really, really, miss my little cuddly teddy bear/friend, Molly, who passed away this last October. It really broke my heart to see her go, after she was born in our home and we had her as part of the family for almost 15 years. But it’s better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all. So I am ready now for a new family member, and excited to meet him.
He will show up and be featured here soon. And there will be many stories and pictures. 🙂
