Meet Murphy. He's a 3 day old F-1 Sheepadoodle. 50/50 Sheepdog and Standard Poodle.



For the record, I think getting another dog right now, especially a long haired 80 pound dog, is crazy. Sharon, OTOH, has been spending a lot of pandemic time on line; researching them and longing for one. She subscribes to several different dog accounts on Instagram and Facebook, and spends hours looking at them.

I don't think she has been this excited since the grandkids were born, and there is no way I am going to get in the way. Besides - we haven't had a puppy in a while.

There are no heart emojis here or I would have used them! Can’t wait to watch this little guy grow!

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

So, if he winds up chewing on something inappropriate, you just say it's .... Murphy's Law.

The previous litter turned out handsome. Steve, remind me, do you or don't you already have a dog right now?

Mr. Pique just looked at the pics and declares he wants a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon crossed with a mini horse.

I've been yearning for an Airedale puppy myself. There's a rancher north of here who breeds a line of Airedales that keep grizzlies off his place.

I get your hesitation. Puppies are a lot of work to raise up to be good citizens.

Want. I’m with your wife.

(Except I’d need to find the time to raise a puppy properly.)

We do have a dog, Sam, but he's been kind of mopey since Dallas died.

We used to have Airedales and we liked them a lot. Great dogs if you can give them enough exercise, which I'm sure you will. Ours liked to dig, and I think that's true of most terriers.

I love terriers--grew up with them--but had forgotten about the digging!

What I'm more concerned about is how a second dog (we still have Winnie the Pooch, our McNab) changes the dynamics of the household--not always for the better. I want a new puppy to bond with me, not my adult dog. Plus Mr Pique is a dog wrecker--he spoils them.
