You guys are so great, thank you so much! If it weren't for you, I'd be standing at the luggage thing waiting LOL. I have harassed my breeder so much with all my questions, I thought I could handle this on my own but I am DEFINITELY glad I double checked.
Hey all! Well, it went very smoothly! Except it took an extra 1.5 hours to get to the airport due to Austin traffic... whew. I made it 10 minutes before he arrived though lol! He is an amazing little guy, very different from my first GSD. The first one was pretty mellow and only wanted to chew on your hands a little bit. This guy is VERY inquisitive and wants to explore and run around. He's an adorable coatie to boot The only complaint I have is all the noise he's making in the kennel right now, but I know that's normal due to him being separated from his littermates and mom.
Here's a pic of us right after I got him (and while still at the airport cargo area) that I so easily found because of all of you! You have no clue how much I (and Bender!) appreciate it!
BTW I used everything that was recommended and I am very glad I asked lol. Cleaning the kennel was nice.
