My Fist GSD/My first puppy

Hello my name is Sarah Sanders and I am the proud owner of Oskar! He is 8 weeks old today, and we will be trekking out into the vortex to take him to his first vet appointment in a few short hours.

My and my three kitties and my boyfriend Micah have welcomed him into our furry friendly and have been pleased with him thus far, despite the nipping and accidents (have you tried potty training a dog in a polar vortex?!?!)

I have had him for about a week and he has already grown so fast... He is just as much work as I thought he would be and a bit more but I feel blessed to have found a companion in him. I joined this forum after reading threads for the past month prior to purchasing my dog and am pleased to have found a community that has been and will continue to be so very helpful as Oskar and make our journey together.

I would like to thank you all in advance for your help,
Sarah & Oskar

Fortunately, mine is already housebroken. I still hate taking him out to potty and feel sorry for the little guy having to squat in the snow. BRRRR! I am so ready for spring. Anyway, congrats on your new puppy!

I strategically planned for a spring puppy so I wouldn't have to go out in the snow every 15 minutes! lol

Congrats, post some pics if you can

yes, amazingly quick. His ears and tail are both much larger than they were a week ago. I can't wait to see what he looks like next week haha. Took him to the vet on Monday and he had already gained three pounds since we got him last Monday!! Proud of him

I will say, that the snow has blanketed many otherwise distracting materials (pinecones, twigs, etc.) which has been helpful. Though he has taken to shove his whole head under the snow and pull out all sorts of wonderful natural objects in spite of it!
