(Preston has being doing his own hair lately – it only takes about thirty minutes to wash the gel out in the evenings!)
They are so little and sweet! JP’s dog is Charlie and Preston’s is her big brother, Sampson. While buying TWO dogs is definitely not the smartest decision we’ve ever made, these two did not need to be separated. They are adorable together.
They were not fans of the snow at first, but once it started to melt away, they would walk around for a while.
Their first outing was to Petco. How cute are they riding around in the cart?!
This may come as quite a SHOCK, but I’ve been getting a ton of questions about the dogs, so I thought I would answer them here.
- What breed are they? They are full-bred German Shepherd puppies. They will grow to be anywhere from 85-125 lbs. Go big or go home, right?!
- Where did you get them? We researched German Shepherds on the internet (I love you, Google) and spoke with several different breeders. We felt most comfortable with a couple who live in Pacolet, on the other side of Spartanburg. The communication, purchase and transition was very easy.
- What made you choose German Shepherds? I have several friends who have GS and love them. They are intelligent and easy to train. They are naturally protective and fiercely loyal. They are perfect family/house dogs. And honestly, we wanted BIG dogs.
- Why did you get two? This is, by far, THE MOST asked question! It makes me laugh out loud each time. Mostly because we have obviously lost our minds. We went from saying we would never have another pet to TWO huge dogs! I’m sorry, that’s just funny. The main reason we chose to bring home two is because of the boys. With JP being at home each day, we were afraid the dog would bond with him while Preston was in school and he would feel left out. Also, who wants to listen to them argue over who gets to sleep with the dog or who gets to hold the dog or who gets to hold the leash when you walk the dog. Trust me, each boy having their own dog is a lot less stressful for everyone!
I think that’s everything. If you have more questions, feel free to shoot me an email. I’ll continue to share updates and obviously you’ll be seeing a lot of the little ones here. Although they won’t be little for long!
