I've searched for older threads on dogs, but they were older than I remember and most of the photos weren't on the servers anymore....leaving lots of comments about white space.

So, I thought I'd start a new "dog thread" with a "new dog":

Buddy was announced on FaceBook a few days ago, but I haven't had a chance to post here, where I can hopefully encourage a Pet thread that won't turn to simple doggy porn like so many others of the past! smile

A couple of weeks ago, while he was still at the breeders:



And now at home, as of this weekend:

Welcome Buddy. That is one cute pup.

OK, I have to ask... did you just happen to get a dog that poses well for photographs, or did you do test shoots of a bunch of dogs before making the final decision ?

I got him through a modeling agency. smile

He's really been better than I expected so far. We've always gotten our dogs from those postings "I can't keep my dog for whatever reason", so I've never had an 8-week old puppy. I'm enjoying seeing his puppyhood, but there ARE challenges.

We're working on the "nipping" (and his wanting to chew everything in sight} by staying on top of him. On the other hand, he's had very few accidents and has had zero "separation" issues from his mom and siblings.

He seems perfectly happy being with people, though we've read that so much of the socialization skills happen in the next few weeks so we want to introduce him to as many other dogs and people as possible.

The schedules and making sure we're keeping an eye on him make it impossible to get anything else done.

Ken, new respect for you!

Nice pics Mark! Cute little guy. Is he a retriever or lab or something else?

We're scheduled to take home a Golden Retriever puppy in March (they're due to be born in January). Looking forward to that. Though you can laugh at me as you'll be further ahead of me on the puppy training curve. wink I am sure my pics will not look as good as yours. Enjoy!
