Hello! New here with a new pup!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Bea and I just stumbled upon this forum and have spent the evening reading back posts.

I share my house with my husband, our two kids, a mischief of cats, a small collection of snakes, and a couple of rats that were far too cute to feed to the above mentioned snakes.

We also have two dogs. Kay a six year old mastiff/bloodhound mix that is past all of the puppy nonsense and has matured into the most perfect dog I could ever want. Though admittedly there were times when she was a puppy that I found myself sitting on my bed crying and begging the universe at large to forgive me for whatever terrible thing I might have done!

Well - after a period of several months my husband and the two kids managed to wear me down to their way of thinking and our new bundle of joy (she will be a joy right? right!?) came home today - well technically yesterday since it seems to be past midnight now (how did that happen?)

Her name is Meagan and she is a 10wk old Irish setter puppy. So far things are going quite well but I really expect that to change over the next couple of days as she gets more use to us. She met Kay and they hit it off right away. She has not had an accident in the house yet - but I am making the girls take her out every 20-30 minutes. She ate her dinner just fine and is now asleep in her crate without a peep. I think she is saving everything up for when she feels more comfortable with us. I give it three maybe four days before the real Meagan comes out. I hope her head doesn't start spinning around and I am so out of here if she starts spitting pea soup everywhere.

Being an Irish setter puppy she has the attention span of a gnat but I was expecting that and am prepared to deal with it! I have been assured by several setter people that yes she will eventually be able to think about something for long than a nano second!

Anyway - I have included a picture of her and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Bea

Haha, isn't that the way of puppies! It sounds like you are quite prepared for the coming months.

Meagan is such a beautiful colour! I just saw my first Irish Setter in years at the dog park last month. Congratulations and welcome, Bea!

Beautiful dog & welcome !!! I knew an Irish Setter a long time ago that used to like to eat wallets full of money.
