    Thumbs up New pet gloat!!!!

    Oh wow, this is gonna be great. It's been sixteen years since we've had a pup. We have been dog less for about a year and a half since I had to put our Springer Buddy down. My son is ten and has been asking to get another dog for several months. I started looking casually a month or so ago but a few days ago a deal fell into my lap that I just couldn't refuse. A member of another site that I'm a member of had an "accidental breeding" between his German Shorthaired Pointer (M) and English Setter (F). At this point, we're calling him a Point-Setter
    His welping name is "Cowboy" which my son likes but he's working on a permanent name. We just brought him home a couple of hours ago and there's no separation anxiety here at all. He's been romping around here with his tail going a mile a minute! Gotta love a new pup in the house. Here are some pics.

    Call him Frank, "after Old Blue Eyes"

    That's a nice pup. I am thinking about getting me a shop buddy too. I just never had much luck with house training a pup. Maybe with me being home all the time now, it won't be so bad.

    I like that Don! I'll have to suggest it to my son.

    You've got a cute pup too Jeff! Congrats.

    John, that is a real cute pup!! I saw the picture before I read your story. I imediately thought English Setter, but man that is a lot of blue for the ears. And the head didn't look quite right. Then reading it was an ES/GSP mix, it made perfect sense.
    But be careful, this is going to be one smart dog! GSP's are very smart hunters, and the English Setter will be a fun loving companion/hunter. It's instincts will be to put it's nose down and GO! Teach your son to be very careful with open doors and gates. These hunters tend to get absorbed in the hunt, and forget where they came from. I think your son, and you, will have a great companion for many years to come! Jim.

    Congrats John! That's one cute pup! Should be a sweet dog and a great addition to the family! I can definitely see the setter ears!

    Our Beauregard is a little over a year old now... but he and Elvis still act as much like puppies as when they WERE puppies. I hope they never change! Great little dogs.

    That's a gorgeous pup. We had 2 English Setters when I was a kid, and they're great dogs. If you're out Waterford way, bring him by. China loves puppies. Since you've got the Red Wings thing going, how about calling him Yzerman?

    Awww, that's a cutie John. Love those blue eyes. yep Frank would be a fitting name.

    Don't have any puppies around here but my AKC Lab came into heat yesterday

    Have fun with that new member to the family John....

    GSP, did you get him from Scott LaRoe (Timbergsp)on that other forum?
