This past Sunday, I finally made the big decision on our new puppy! I have been wanting a doberman for as long as I can remember, but never wanted to bring one into the house until we had a child. Well, we have lost all of our dogs, and we have Josie now, she is potty trained, so I figured now is the best time. Plus we need new flooring in our house now anyway, so might as well house train a dog before we change it.
Anyway, meet Gertie! (Gertrude)
Speaking of pets, Blue, the cat, still isn't too sure of her. She hides in the loft under the couch all day, until Gertie is put in her pen. Then she may come out. Last night, I took Gertie to get her ears cropped, so she had to stay the night at the vet. Once the cat figured out that the dog wasn't home, she wouldn't leave Josie and I alone. Poor thing! I figure this weekend I'll work with them being in the same room. I don't want Blue to have to live out the rest of her life, hiding! :-)
