Took the leap
I've been hanging around the forum for a couple weeks as a guest and browser. After reading numerous posts, I decided to join. The members of this forum are full of advice and clearly many have done their research and are full of experience. My husband and I are trying to raise the furchild the best way possible to make him a prime example for how a dog should be in a community. I feel that this forum is a wealth of information. I look forward to reading and discussing with all of you.
Quest is our adopted retriever mix. He is turning 9 months this week. Both my husband and I grew up with dogs, but he is our first on our own. Originally, we weren't planning on adopting until May; however, what started as a February weekend of errands and an oil change, ended at the humane society, signing adoption papers. We are so glad we didn't wait or we could have missed out on such a great addition to our family. Quest is progressing nicely. He knows basic commands and a few tricks. He actually won second place this past weekend in Musical Pups at a Bark for Life event.
I'm excited to get to know some of you and troll the boards in a more official manner.
