While I was away, I met and took care of the most amazing German Shepherd. He is from Germany, and he is a Schutzhund Level 1 trained dog.
I spent about five days with him… and I fell in love!
My Pug dog is amazing too, but in an adorable clown-like sort of way.
Marek, the German Shepherd, understands German. So I had to quickly master the German commands: Plotz, Sits, Ouss, Bly’b, Fooss, Nine, He’er — not correct spelling, but correct sound 🙂
I’ve never met such a well-trained dog… Calm in the house yet playful and ready to work when outside.
We have the opportunity to make Marek ours for life.
*Will our 8-year-old Pug and the 2 1/2-year-old German Shepherd get along?
*We travel often, we love our freedom. Do we want to take on the responsibility of another, younger, much bigger dog?
We are taking everything into consideration and our next step is to have the two dogs meet. We tease that we’ll let the Pug decide. 🙂
So much to think about… I know we’ll make the right decision… what’s best for us but more importantly, what’s best for both dogs.
