I know that some of you didn't think that I should get another dog for whatever reason; but, I am going to Louisville tomorrow to pick up Rosie's new brother a pruebred English Shepherd at about 4 months old. These are sometimes called farm collies. The dogs I was reared with as a child. I think the dog will be good for Rosie and my GS and me. they are supposed to be protective of their family and also able to find one of the family. I think I will feel safe walking in the woods with him. My old Alsation would go find someone and I am hoping to train this dog to do the same. But if I die before the puppy is trained, my GS will take him home with him. Hopefully not for a long time.

With your long experience with dogs, I think you should do whatever the hell you want to do. Congratulations on your new family/ pack member.

As long as I don't have to train him, I am not about to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do!! But you know the rules - we DO expect photos! Best wishes to you, Lucile! Hope he and Rosie will be great pals - and the kitty too - his name escapes me at the moment....grrr....hate when that happens.

And I hate that someone is messing with the emoticons! What is the purpose? Like going to the grocery store and they have moved everything around and you know what you want but it takes twice as long to find it.

Lucile, admit it - you are looking forward to training this new little guy! Can't wait to see pictures of the new big "little" brother! Your grandson is going to love him!

Congratulations! I would never expect you to do anything other than what you want to do. I can only say, "Atta girl!"

Have you decided on a name? How about Abie? Kind of goes with Rosie . . . It's a new adventure for you and we all need to look forward and add to our lives. If you find him to be helpful (other than just telling someone you've fallen and you can't get up) all the better!! Can't imagine Rosie won't enjoy another dog around -- it will be good for her, too.

All the best, Lucille. Please post pictures when you get him!

They're not my dogs -- I'm their person
