    If you guys do decide, use petfinder.com. That’s how we found all the shelters in our area and they get young puppies often! We couldn’t believe it! It gets addicting looking at all the cuties in there though. Even though we have already adopted, I still find myself peaking in there from time to time. PlanetDog.com is one of my new fav puppy sites for doggie stuff, and they support animal rescue from shelters. I think they have a link on their site to some approved shelters.

    Linda and I have been having the puppy itch too- we will probably go to a shelter as well but want a baby so we can train. Summer is a good time for us because we will have someone home more- no pee pee on the carpet! We will see- not worrying about it is also nice so we have to think long and hard- these guys can last 17 + years so it is a big commitment.

    Well we don’t get him until next weekend, but Nate is probably not the name that will stick. That’s what they called him at the shelter and even though I kinda like it, David has a nephew named Nate. We are taking suggestions for names for our new lover boy. He’s a lab boxer mix and is only 3-4 months old. Let the housetraining begin (We bought spot cleaner and other doggie goodies this weekend). He will also be crate trained. We plan to take him to the vet ASAP, but he is up to date on shots and they are neutering him this week. We watched our training video that the shelter gave us so we are ready to teach our new boy how to behave, but we are thinking about taking some additional trainign classes. We are also thinking about volunteering some of our time there at the shelter to help them out. They have so many cute dogs there that need good homes and attention. My favorite was a little pit bull named Jack who was stranded on the Aiderondack trail. He followed some hikers 14 miles down the trail after they gave him som Jack’s Beef Jerkey to revive him (hence his name). He was starving and in pretty bad shape but is the cutest fella. I wanted him in the worst way but could not have a pit bull puppy at our complex. We feel really good that we were able to rescue a dog from a shelter and can’t wait to get him.
