He is 6 weeks old today. We got very first pick. He is coming home in two weeks. Very excited. Mother and Father are both black/red german working lines. Mother is very light, father is dark. Should be a nice combination.
We picked him because he continued to come to me when I made a noise. His coat was very clean, clear eyes, and healthy feeling body.
I'll update with pictures in a few weeks.
His name is Duke.
Went to see 'Duke' again. 7 weeks old now. He is going to be a good dog. Checked all his coat, eyes, skin etc. Over again, all good. I kept walking away from him and the clapping. Every time he ran straight to me. Played with him for about 20 minutes. Then played with remaining dogs for 10 minutes or so.
In my excitement, I forgot the camera. Maybe next time?
12 more days to wait!!!!
Sounds like you and I are on the exact same schedule! My guy, Equinox (Nox for short) was born May 26 and we're picking him up on Jul 25 or 26 when he's just over 8.5 weeks, depending on if my hubby can do a half day on the 25th. Same reason as you - I'm taking a few weeks off starting Jul 28. I can't wait! I just posted his pics on an earlier thread - he's a little cutie! And I'm sure your Duke is just as cute, whenever you get pics.
