Our New Family Member

We began the journey to get our puppy on Sunday morning. We knew it was going to be a long trip and 750 miles later it was indeed!

Steve, Tyler and I headed to Ray, ND to pick up the baby German Shepard now known as Gunner.  Steve and I already love him to pieces; he is starting to get his own personality and warming up to life on the farm.

He had his first bath on Monday and let’s just say he was not a fan…next time Steve is going to help so Gunner stays in the tub! 

Gunner isn’t going to be a house dog but so far that is what he appears to be, with us being so busy and the cold weather he gets to come inside a lot. I’ve come to the conclusion that getting a puppy during harvest and right before winter was not smart on our part! Oh well harvest is almost done and then Steven will have more time during the day to play and train him. 

We are trying to potty train him and some days I feel like he understands and other days I don’t think he gets it at all. So if anyone has any great potty training tips let me know!! Oh and if you have tips on how to get him to stop biting at our clothes and hands while playing let me know because, holy crap his teeth are sharp!

Gunner is two months old already, 9 weeks old yesterday (Friday 21st) he almost has the sit command down but now we have to really work on getting him to come when we call his name. One of his favorite things to eat right now besides his dog food is gravel, don’t know what he tastes in it but he thinks it’s yummy!

All in all he is an adorable puppy, well behaved and we couldn't be more excited to have a German Shepard on the farm again. Check back often to read more about Gunner!!

** Update ** Our poor Gunner was killed and taken from us way to soon, he was 9 months and 13 days old and we miss him everyday. We don't know who did this horrible thing to our baby but I can only believe that in some way they will be punished for this terrible act. Rest In Peace Gunner Baby.
