And Stacey and I can't sleep a wink! She named him Mopar, and he's currently 7 weeks old. We're picking him up from around Jackson Sunday morning from Blue Sly kennels.

We don't have personal pics of him yet, but this is the pic that sold both of us. Turns out the one we picked out was the only one he had left!

Dog Plant Dog breed Carnivore Liver

Aww, look at that sweet face

Just remember your first kid is always the most fun and the hardest at the same time.
Be sure he knows the rules and who is boss, children like to please.
Give him lots of love and discipline at the same time, try not to spoil him too much, that's what his "auntie" is for.

Either stop by my place Jon, or wait till we hunt again, and you can borrow my book...Water Dog.

Congrats on the new companion. You know waht they say don't you? You get a dog to see if your ready for kids, then you have kids because how much harder can they be? Then you get another dog, when you realise the kids are much more difficult.

Enjoy. He brings back many memories of when we brought brought Grizz home.

Thanks for asking anyway Al! I hope you got shitfaced last night brotha. I bet it was an awesome party. I'll get together with you soon for those fetching ducks. I'm sure we'll get a chance well before he's ready to use em.

As far as the kennel goes, I'm pretty confident i'm going to build him one out of cedar. Take off of what you told me about Tucker's use of his kennel, and make one for Mopar that'll last him a lifetime.

Any suggestions?

So I made the mistake of sleeping with him in his kennel in our bedroom last night.
Tonight he's going downstairs and i'm setting the alarm.

Mopar is home and running the show. He stops people everywhere we go (well at bass pro last night anyway. Got him an awesome blaze orange collar) and is doing well after an entire day of bouncin around in the truck on Stacey's lap. He did really good too. He's been going when I take him outside and thus far one accident. Unless you count the "grabbing the table cover with a fresh can of pop on it that ended up spraying in every direction when it landed"" incident. Then there's a couple accidents.


But he's absolutely beautiful and a genuine lover. His parents stood to my freakin belly button. And were beautiful as well. His english pointers had bodies of champions. Gorgeous dogs. And the sire is an Elhew! Great pedigree of dogs that young man is raising. And just the kind of breeder you wanna get your pup from. Got his act together, incredible kennels built on 3 feet of pea gravel encapsulated by stacked railroad ties that hold individual dogs. U-shaped and damn clean too.

Unfortunately we didn't get any good pics yesterday, so more pics are to come.

There's a big surprise! Wait 'til he's 100 lbs. and watch him run the show! Congrats - he's a beauty and will certainly be a handful. Sounds like you guys will be spending a ton of time with him and to me that's the biggest training factor - like BD said they want to please so he just needs to figure out how - good luck, and keep the pics comin'!
