Planned name: Breeder names the litter, haven't thought of any GOOD suggestions myself. DH wants the call name to be "Sundance".
Going to pick up: June or July of 2011 :fingerscrossed:
Gender: either
Breeder: It's a secret ;)
Lines: West German Working
Sire: Unknown
Dam: If I tell you this, then you'll know who the breeder is.

Status: Breeding to take place in the spring of 2011. Application (ie. 7 page book) is complete and sent to the breeder. I've met the breeder and dogs (met the future momma) :D

I've bought a few books on raw feeding (which the breeder recommends) to give me some research to do before a puppy comes home. I've set up my "puppy fund" to save some money to pick up those things I might need but don't already have. It just seems too soon to go out buying things just yet.

I had a GSD for 14 years and he passed away last year :(. My Female Shep/Rott mix and I are finally ready for a new playmate. My husband was the voice of reason and we've decided to wait until spring 2011 to get our new family member (cuz I really want one now!). We have found a local breeder and have spoken to her about pick of the litter for a male and now we just wait.......The breeder has informed us that we would be looking at mid-April to pick him out and then a couple weeks later we can take him home. I haven't had a "puppy" for 11 years now, so I'm very excited and nervous all at the same time. However, Casey will be a great "Mentor" to the new puppy, so I will trust in her guidance in helping us raise our new one. A couple names that we've thrown out there are "Kimber" and "Carson", but I'm sure once we meet the new guy and get an idea of his personality, those may not even be a consideration.

Good luck to everyone in 'waiting' mode - I can only wish that the time between now and next spring goes quickly!! Until then, I'm going to live vicariously through these posts of everyone else enjoying their new puppy! :)

We are also on the waiting list for this litter and for Triton Kennels spring litter. There are things that I really love about each litter, so it just depends on how many males in the litter and if there is one that is a match for us. We are a little ways down on both lists, so I am not getting my hopes up too much.

Gender: Male
Call Name: Grizzly
Planning to try: SchH, Agility, Rally, and Therapy.

I am in the beginning stages of researching my next pup... kind of like being on a waiting list in a way.

And yes, I agree... Wyane wins the "waiting list" award.

Yeah, I'm sure I'll feel that way in a few months....j/k. He's not really that loud, I'm just not going to bed on time and getting up much earlier to accommodate the new routine.

How come?
It's too soon. I don't want to jinx anything. :)

Wayne is the king, president, prime minister, governor, mayor, constable of the "waiting list" ...
Nope - not really. There are people who have been researching longer and waiting longer - just not as vocal about it. ;)
