      Yea, her dad is 90lb and her mom is 85lb so we're expecting she'll be around that.

      Sorry to hear about the new pup but I totally get it. I'm sure it was a hard decision to make.

      Nice. Our old German Shepherd was a runty 65 lbs... I imagine an 80-90lb version will be a lot of fun. If we could find another (available) sable shepherd, we'd be all over it.



      And yeah, it took me two attempts to actually bring the new girl back. I turned the car around the first time I tried and barely made it the second. Not fun, but I think everybody/dog is better off.

      Last week was the second time in a row we got back into town to find our dog with a hurt paw, and a $x,000 vet bill.

      Almost a year ago to the day, our dog passed away while we were 12 time zones away. I think I might need to start taking her to a professional facility that doesn't let them out, and has 24 hour staff.

      It really pains me to do that though because my dog needs exercise or she goes crazy.

      Aww, she was cutie.

      Man, that had to be really tough. Sorry...

      Aww, poor puppy. We haven't started looking at boarding places yet for Juniper but it's something we need to do. We don't travel much but just for an emergency.

      Thanks. It was unexpected... took her on her typical long, high-energy morning walk, she took a nap on the deck, and then just couldn't get up. Took her to the vet, and a tumor (that nobody knew about) had ruptured in her abdomen, which lead to severe internal bleeding. It hit me harder than some human deaths I've experienced. She was 12, but like most German Shepherds, still had the energy of a much younger dog.

      We've had good luck trading dog watching with our neighbors. Dog watching + a case of beer or some wine, typically. In the rare case when timing hasn't worked out, I've found that the smaller, family-owned kennels tend to be better than the larger, more commercial ones. Your vet may also offer boarding.

      Oh, and that $x,xxx bill and the hurt paw is a huge bummer.
