    Just now getting the chance to share the news of the new addition to the family… brought him home on the 28th of July where he was 7 weeks old to the day. (In the pictures he’s 8 weeks old.)

    He’s a German Shorthair Pointer (GSP) from a GREAT blood-line (I was #1 on “the list” for this litter) & he’s officially “my” new gun/bird dog. However, the #1 role he’ll play will be that of the new family dog… setting aside the occasional run-in with the sharp “puppy teeth/puppy claws” he’s doing GREAT with the family. :) (wife & our 2 little gals, oldest 3.75, youngest 1.75)

    He’ll “major in” upland bird pointing/retrieving & “minor in” warmer weather waterfowl retrieving.

    Okay, enough rambling… meet Red Baron, Red is what we call him:

    (Not only did we figure the Red Baron name went along good with a German dog, but that it also fit well on so many more levels with a gun/bird dog… I’d have him wear the historically accurate white scarf if I knew that it wouldn’t get tangled up while out in the field… maybe just a white collar will have to do then. ;))

    Thanks! (I'm hoping he makes it through the "potty training" though... I've had to save him a few times from the wife already! ;f)

    He was pointing tweety birds in the bushes in those pictures. :) (My wife rolls her eyes because I get excited about that... she just don't understand. ;))

    Michigun, Congrats on such an adorable pup! He seems to already be on the ball with the bird watching. Take lots of pictures as they grow up so fast.You'll be by the teething stage before you know it. Again Congrats and enjoy.
