I just wanted to introduce myself as a new member. I have wanted a GSD for MANY years, and now that I am retired I am finally going to get her. In fact, I have put a deposit down with MelloDee of Germelhaus near Princeton, north of Dallas. So, for now, I will be lurking on the forum and trying to learn. I am fairly used to forums with my other interests, such as fishing, and see them as fun and a wealth of information.
