Progress

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.

Thank you.

I joined back in 2010, but I feel like I am getting closer to owning a GSD one day.

I think you have a great plan, I know the 'waiting' can be hard, but I believe you can accomplish whatever you put your mind to

With Puppy, it's the same thing as owning that sibe. I spend ALL my free time walking her. We are also on 2 hours of exercise a day, plus training, feeding, grooming, etc. The challenges you experienced with your last dog will still be there, but I'm sure in a couple of years you'll feel more equipped to handle these challenges.

Good luck on your schooling and career.

I like your plan and admire your determination and grit. You'll go far in this life.

I'm a bit older than you (I'm 30) but I'm back in school full time, working part time, trying to keep up a house and a husband. . . and Kopper pretty much takes up every thing else.

I'm interested to hear how it works out with your school and what career you end up pursuing.
