OK, so I'm finally updating. I'm just now getting back to 100% after a nasty cold, so I apologise.
Ain't she the cutest:
Well in my last post I said I was gonna be a daddy. So here's how the story goes: I've been looking since November, doing my research and such. I thought I had my mind made up on a Weimaraner, but then found a different breed. So I made my mind up, the next step was to find a good breeder(and the right price). Seeing how this breed is not enormously popular, it was a bit of a search. Not to mention, nobody I contacted in the national club would send me breed referrals. But prevail I did, and I went and picked up my little girl on Jan. 18...from Minnesota. Yup, goofy-ass me drove 10 hours for a dog. And I'd do it again. She was about 12 weeks old when I got her, today she's 14 weeks.
So here is my new Vizsla(veesh-la), Tess:
And here's Tess being a normal Vizsla, running back to me with her Kong
Here she is posing for a picture with her puppy Kong(thank God for whoever invented that toy)
Ya see it's like this: you take a rocket, wrap it in a red furry coat with floppy ears, and ya got a vizsla.
Tess is very active, like most sporting dogs, and loves to play. One of the things that helped me choose a Vizsla is that they are very intelligent....and believe me, Tess is smart as a whip. In the two weeks I have had her, I already have her trained to come, sit, halt, fetch and retrieve, kennel(although she's a little stubborn with this one at times), and she is getting the shake thing down pat(just started on that yesterday). And what can I say, I got a thing for redheads.
