Now, if only Westfield would cover the cost of the four new Michelins going onto our Genesis on Friday!

Wow Martin that's a lot of damage! Hope she comes back to you looking as good as she did before. We love our Trailhawk and I think it sits as nice as Barb's Mercedes. Good luck to you guys!

A wonderful surprise!

Well...

Perhaps fate dealt us a Joker and an Ace. From my Facebook...

Sometimes things happen both the bad and the good. 2 days ago we lost Thor and we hope to find out what happened after all the necropcy results get back. It was a horrible thing to happen. We loved that guy and still miss him. But then something good happened. We knew that we wanted to get another pup but we figured to get a nice GSD we would have to get in line and maybe wait over 6 months. Well…we cut to the front! A reputable breeder who’s dogs have strong German breeding lines had a pup that was supposed to go to another person but due to circumstances that person had to give the pup up. We were told about it and after talking with the breeder about the pup’s traits and our needs felt it was worth a 2 hour trip to see the pup and parents.

Looking at the pictures of the parents on the breeder’s web page we thought we had stumbled onto a great opportunity. Here was a pup with the potential of being great! He was 1 day shy of being 8 weeks old and available to take home right away.

We got to the breeder’s place to meet the breeder, the pup’s parents and an uncle. all three adults were layed back, friendly and gorgeous. Dad is a TANK and impressive! Great bone structures and rich dark saddles for both parents. While we think that if the pup resembles his dad he will turn heads, if he turns out to look more like the uncle he will be a very commanding specimen.

Now, some folks might say it is too soon and we respect that. However we felt that this was a great opportunity. It allows us to get a lot of his puppy and obediance training done before we hit the late summer or early fall traveling season.

Without further ado, we introduce….ZEUS!

It is sooooooo good. I'd save you a piece, but by the time you drive here it will be all gone. I think Herb and Barb had some once, but maybe it was the crockpot chocolate pudding cake.

Put mine in Tuesday. Considerably less estimate than what you have. Only $3800 (notice the number of zeros) but there may be supplemental adjustments.

Citrus will go in when she comes out of her annual check-up. She's estimated at $2800 (Again, notice the zeros)

Things happen for a reason and Zeus is one heck of a good reason. Congratulations to you both and of course to Zeus.

I won't tell Sandee you said that. That will be between you, me, several dozen STMs and hundreds of casual readers. ROTFLMAO!

Don pup looks good, but you know a dog is only as good as his trainer, oh that's right, you said that's Sandees dog, and look what a great job she's done with you!
