Ladies and gentlemen, may I present mine and Rob's beautiful new baby girl, Miss Dutchess Anastasia! (Annie for short... :P)

Okay, so, here's the story:
Rob and I had been throwing the idea around of getting another GSD. We weren't really sure we wanted to deal with another mess of dog hair around the house, though. Well, yesterday, I was sitting at my desk at work looking at the classified section of the paper, and I was curious as to how much GSD puppies were going for in Kansas. I didn't want to spend a lot on a GSD. Anyway, I called Rob and told him there were GSD puppies in the paper. He said he'd think about it, and he'd come up and look at the paper later.
Not even 10 minutes later, he comes walking into my work saying, "Alright, give me this paper. I'm going to make some calls." I told him that I wanted to wait because I wanted to go with him to pick out the puppy, but he told me if we were getting another GSD that he was picking out the puppy, because my decision would be based on how cute the puppy was, not it's temperment. I reluctantly agreed, and Rob went and found a breeder about 200 miles from where we live. He went down and picked out Annie, because she was sweet and biding for his attention. He liked her temperment, and called me. I really really wanted a black and tan saddleback, but it didn't matter to me when he told me she wasn't one. He brought her home and I instantly fell in love with her!
That's another story. :rotflmao:
But anyway, he is doing good with her and being really gentle. He's had his jealous bouts with her, showing her who's boss, but he's really mellowed out about it. They even played together today!
It's definitely been an experience for me... I haven't had a puppy since I was a kid, and Rob's been teaching me through every step of the way. Even the first sleepless night of taking her outside to potty when she'd whine. Just like having a real baby. *dies* But, she's worth it.
