That's AWESOME! I wonder if I could go...and support. There's a team in Nashville that has welcomed Kastle and I any time we can...wonder if they're going
Ack! You need to go so I can meet you as well! A mini-Chaz meetup! Also, I'm still not 100% sold that an ACD is what you are looking for. I would highly recommend meeting some working, but reputable, bred ACD's before you make the final decision. I'm obviously the odd one out though, so maybe I'm just crazy. Lol!

Pan really needs to STOP growing. He is getting so big already. And OMG puppy tantrums are the worst. He is such a stubborn ass.

meepits: The Can Am is in Indianapolis, October 18-20th. It would be super cool to meet up with you there if you can make it (and the team has enough people to go)!

FG you should totally come up!

Oh they've crossed my mind! I figured I would be picking some brains around here (hint, hint, LOL) about physical needs and such.

As I said, our house is slowing down, kids moving on, and we need a smaller and less active breed of dog. A breed that would be happy/healthy with a short (mile or less) daily walk and some play time in the house/backyard.

When I said "December....January" that is when I plan to start actively looking, so of course I'll need to have my mind made up (or narrowed) on a breed/s. I'll be getting a thread on the matter going pretty soon and I might even shoot you a PM or two I have no qualms with adopting from a shelter, craig's list, etc etc but I do want to go in prepared with clear expectations of what will work for us at this stage in our lives.

I REALLY don't want to end up with a criminal master mind like Mia though! LMAO! (I'm getting too old to keep up with the likes of her! LOL)

At work I've noticed all of the German Shepherds do the EXACT same bark when they are annoyed with another dog. It's this high pitched sort of soft/restrained bark usually done with lips pulled back to show teeth, usually right in the face of the offending dog, but with the shepherds head turned slightly away. It's just so strange they all do it and I've never seen it from any of the other dogs.


In other news, working at the daycare has made me sort of fall in love with German Shepherds and Huskies, two breeds I had no interest in at all. It's funny though, my first week working there multiple people told me working there made them hate German Shepherds.

Me neither, lots of time to hopefully meet some and decide...but I am struggling finding anyone around here with NOT show bred ACDs running agility...however, I *know* I love Staffies

I want a cheap harness for Hudson for vacation because of the beach. I kind of want to try my hand at making one because I have lots of nylon webbing and buckles, I just don't trust my handy-work not to fail when Hudson hits the end of a leash with all his might. He can drag me when he does that.

Everyone at my daycare hates GSDs too, but I love them and working with them only made me want one more! I think they're just poor daycare candidates, generally, so they see the annoying side where I'm like whoa, I bet that dog is AWESOME at home!

My muse of the day: I think I need to be more flexible about my future breed, because I'm coming to realize that I have very high demands for a breeder. I basically want a soulmate in a breeder, lol. I want someone that will become a good friend and mentor and I think that might be hard to find if I'm only looking at one or two breeds. Luckily my criteria is somewhat broad and I think there are a decent number of breeds I'd be perfectly happy with. I've been so focused on finding *THE* PERFECT BREED and I'm seeing that maybe that shouldn't be my absolute #1 concern.

When I worked in boarding kennels (and I see them brought into the retail store where I work now) yeah, most of them that come through are pretty weird. They are just not always really great in public or put in the care of someone else. There are some that are pretty stable but so many that are kind of a mess. Airedales too, I never saw an Airedale that could handle being kenneled well.

I hate having GSD in daycare. Their play styles are typically so intense, and loud, they set my teeth on edge.
