Meet Spike!

I have been so busy this past week. I generally don't read or post when I've got Chunk and then you add on the new addition and I'm very tired. So, who is this new addition? Well, meet Spike.

He's an almost 5 month old German Shorthaired Pointer. He is not a hunting dog for us, even though the breed is. As the breeder told me "He's chickenshit and gun shy. He'd rather lay in your lap and watch tv." So, he's perfect for us. Chunk is very happy and calls Spike his "perfect puppy." They play together and chase each other. I'm teaching Spike to play fetch so next time Chunk comes home they can. Spike does very good on a leash for no training. No pulling, which is great! Oh, and he's a great bird dog. He pointed at the frozen turkey after it fell out of the fridge but completely ignored the doves on the ground in the backyard.

One more picture, of Chunk and his Spike and then I'm off. Have a great Thanksgiving in the States and a great Thursday if you're not. I'll be watching the BIG GAME tomorrow night and probably throwing things at my TV. It'll be great.
