This past weekend, my wife and I took a trip out to New Jersey to go to an AKC dog show and meet with a dog breeder. While, for some, this may not be an event worthy of a blog post, for me however, it is a jaw dropper! My family is one big group (3 siblings) of non animal lovers. For me to go to a dog show (out of state no less), meet a breeder, and *drum roll* put a deposit on a dog would be heresy!

My wife grew up with pets and has wanted one since day one of our relationship. I am allergic to cats, which is what she would have liked, but I am not allergic to dogs. After being married for almost 2 years and just settling into our new home I finally feel I am up to the responsibility. We shall see.

So, with the pups expected to be born this week the breeder is thinking mid-July will be when they are ready to go home. Is my life as I know it over this summer?

In case you are interested, we are getting a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

** Update: We passed on the liter that was born. We are now waiting on a male from a litter that was born in July and we should have him in September! 





Here he is at 6 weeks

Have you ever heard of a Vizsla?

We have had the breed in our family for over 20 years and I think they are the greatest companions ever.  It is truly like having another member of the family.  My father has been breeding them for a few years now.

Hi Josh,
No, I am not familiar with that breed. The dog looks a bit bigger than a Staff-Bull.
