Rosalee Posted November 30, 2020 Report Share Posted November 30, 2020 Hi, new here. I have been reading through the forums for the past month or so anticipating our new puppy. This is Katie, she is 8 weeks old and we picked her up a few days ago. She is our first border collie and our first puppy. Well, my first puppy. My husband raised his JRT who passed away at age 18 a few years ago from as a puppy. He was an amazing dog, so my husband must have done something right I say, but that was a long time ago lol. i do have dog experience, just all of my prior dogs have been rescues not puppies. My last dog passed away earlier this year at age 17, she was some kind of hound/terrier type mix, mix unknown, she was a stray. She was my best friend, we did everything together. She was the kind of dog who waited outside the bathroom door for me, you know? Since she passed, we fostered a young walker coonhound who had serious trust issues. She was from a shelter, a bad situation. She has found her home now, it was tough to say goodbye! and so, this time we wanted to get a puppy, the “puppy experience”. A little leery if I am up to the task and I am sure I will have many questions along the way! Seem like many experienced people here to Ask! Looking forward to the adventure. So far Katie is settling in well and just getting to know each other still. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
