New Dog

Well after putting Ms. Haddie Mae down this past summer I have finally decided to take the plunge of getting a new dog.

I've been wanting a GSP for a while even before I lost Haddie. So I've been searching the Internet. I really didn't want a puppy as I don't have the time to invest in fully training it. I also didn't want a puppy coming in and completely destroying the house after I spent all this time renovating. So I've been looking for a 2-4 year old. Kind of out of the puppy stage, but still had plenty of good years left. I've tried going the rescue route through the GSP Rescue of Texas. Let me tell you something, adopting a kid is probably an easier undertaking than getting a dog from these people. I know they're looking out for the welfare of the dogs here, but lord were they over the top. I feel like even if the dog has had issues you take it in and give it the best life possible and all will work out. They on the other hand feel that if a dog has the slightest hint of anxiety or anything then if you can be home with it constantly or have another dog for it to be with constantly then no go. So all that to say I won't be going with a rescue from them. I've also gone the pound route, but unfortunately GSPs really don't pop up there.

So browsing a gun dog forum yesterday one caught my eye. 3.5 years old, outstanding coloring, the size I was hoping for. Fully crate broke and trained to point on quail and pheasant already. Also retrieves quail, pheasant, dove, and ducks. Also is supposedly one hell of a swimmer. So with out further long windedness may I introduce the newest member of the Jackson family. Formerly known as The Dude meet the newly named Jagger.

It's been 7 months....I love the guy to death, but HOLY SHIT! He is a wild ass Indian. Remember that while not wanting a puppy thing? Well I got one, this just happens to be a fully grown 70 pound one.
