  • Puppyhood 101

    2016 - 09.17

    Having raised a few pups in my life, I figured “what could be so hard about one more?”  I read through some of the old tried and true puppy manuals, watched the infamous Cesar Millan as he turned wild little beasts into cuddly lap dogs, and even read about how the Monks of New Skete raised German Shepherd puppies to behave appropriately in their adopted human pack.  I was more than ready! But nothing prepared me for the awesomeness of her eyes when she looks so innocently right into mine or her animated antics as she discovers new places in her yard. Nothing prepared me for the excitement and love she gives every time I come home, even if I was only gone ten minutes. No, there are few things in life that give so much and ask for so little. And so our training goes on hour by hour and day by day and chances are, this pup won’t be a perfectly obedient show dog, but she is growing into an awesome country dog with an incredible loving attitude toward life. Whatever dogs view life to be. Meet Albrae!
