I wasn't sure where to put this. It has something to do with dogs and german shepherds, but it's a progress thread.
Things are really coming together in my life. I am attempting to get into a tech program at a community college in the state. If I get accepted into the program, I will go full speed ahead in graduating. It will take two more years, but it will be totally worth it. The career makes good money and is flexible about schedule. I feel like it would be a good career for me. I will know in June if I got in.
Once I graduate and become certified, I will look at a home and owning a dog. I know in the past I wanted to become a sibe breeder, but that's waning and the waning is lasting a long time. I've been doing a lot of thinking and reading and studying and yes I did love my first siberian, but I'm beginning to think that may not have been the right breed for me. I now know the way she was wasn't because she was a puppy or etc, but because she was truly a siberian. I think back to when I had her and how upkeeping her was so hard for me. I would get out of class, walk her, train her, and feed her. Three times a day, 45 minutes - an hour each walk. It wore me out. I know another factor I need to look at is I was a full time college student, but in time I will decide.
I've wanted a german shepherd for a long time, I wanted one before I got my sibe. I do want to own a german shepherd someday and with the desire to own or breed sibes dimenshing, it's looking more and more like the next dog I will own will be a german shepherd.
I am taking my time with this. When I secure a job and income, I will look at where I am at and the breeds that I am interested in. I do know I want to own a german shepherd someday. Who knows, I may end breeding german shepherds like I wanted to do a long time ago?
In the mean time, while going through college, I will come around this forum. To help others and to continue to learn about this breed.
