World, Meet Moose. Our new(ish) puppy.
For Christmas I promised Dave that we could get him the hunting dog he always wanted. For years he has been telling me how much he wanted a dog to go out to the pasture with him when he went hunting and how he has wanted a dog since he was in middle school (and even earlier) so I decided it was time. It took a few months before we finally found a kennel with a litter that we were interested in, but we found our perfect little puppy moose.
We drove 3 hours to pick him out and were bombarded with puppies. So many teeny little german shorthairs running around, biting each other, and howling at the wind. We decided to pick the calmest, most loving one in the litter, and Moose was that puppy. About a month later we drove down and picked him up and he howled for most of the drive home but snuggled up with Dave and was adorable as hell.
We have had him now for about two months and we are completely smitten with him. Sure, the first to months were rough. We slept very little, cleaned up so much pee, and were bitten so many times. He also refused to fall asleep anywhere but on you, but hey, I won't complain about a good snuggling puppy. We made it through the beginning stages and we are starting to see the sweet little characteristics of our puppy. Here are a few highlights and some of Moose's favorite things:
We love our little guy and can't wait to see how he grows up!, Leah
