    Okay, Okay. Some of you already know. But for those who don't I'M FINALLY GETTING A DOG TODAY!!!!!!^5 ~woohoo~ ;+ A 3 year old, longhaired German Shepherd Male named Boscoe. Already Housetrained, and already started in Schutzhund (Protection Dog) training. I'm going in a little while to go start training with him. And after the training session, We''l bring him home. For Schutzhund work, I need more training than he does. One of the best parts, The owner ,an old friend of my dad and my uncle, is just gonna Give him to me. He said he don't want any money for him. He's taking over another good schutzhund dog from a guy he knows who's a Sgt. in the Army going to Iraq soon, and also he's buying one of the puppies from my uncle's GSD litter that just arrived. So he told my dad Sunday that he's looking for a good home for him. I've only ever seen him work once, but he looked very willing to please. Dad put the bite sleeve on and worked him in the bite work Sunday and Boscoe is GOOD at it! Six minutes later, Andre (His current owner...) brought him over to dad and Boscoe was just as friendly as can be. Very sociable. An excellent dog! I am VERY Excited about it!^5 ~woohoo~ ;+ I just hope I can pick up on the training quickly enough.

    You're gonna love this dog. I've had 2 GSD schutzhund dogs I've competed with. You are right about the training, you'll make more mistakes than the dog to begin with. No sweat, my 2 dogs survived me.

    Pics would be cool. Here's a pic of my last dog, Dusty who just passed away this month.

    Well Training pretty much got rained out, but I did learn how to set a track before the rain started. Bosco's (I've been spelling it wrong appearantly.) an excellent tracker. We got out there and played ball so he and I could bond a little. We've been playing off and on since we got home. I swear,this dog would be happy if he did nothing else all his life. He's ball crazy. It's good, though. It's a little bit of a training advantage. But I think he'll be very happy here. I know I'm gonna be happy with him around. I love this dog already. Andre told me "If for some reason you ever get rid of him, only give him back to me." But, I don't think I'd want to get rid of him. Don't know when I'll be able to post pics. I don't have a working camera right now.

    Yeah, I think he and I wore each other out playig with the ball. He is one strong fast 80 lbs hunk of dog! I'm gonna try to be ready to put a Schutzhund 1 title on him December 2nd. That's my goal, anyway. I hate that the training today got rained out, but there's other days I can continue training.

    Congrats! GSD's are in my opinion, the best dog breed, bar none. You two will get along great.

    And hey, for what it's worth, here's a few pictures of my girl's schH training.

    NCUrk, thanks for posting them like that. I don't know why I didn't think to do them that way.

    mavrick, You already know I'm a little jealous of your girl.;) She's PURRTY! Looks like she's got a hell of a set of choppers on her too.

    You said it 4STER! That's the reason I like big dogs! Although I don't have my GLOCK yet. It'll have to be the Mossberg 590 and the .357 until I get it.;f

    He's a good looking dog. Its the look in their eye. With some dog's you can just see it....they are THERE. And since you already realize you need more training then he does I'm sure great things are in the offering. Congrats.
