    Default Introduction

    Hello Everyone, been lurking on this site for awhile, finally joined a couple of months ago, and took possession of a BLM puppy this morning.
    It took weeks to finally settle on a name, we all agreed on Ashe.
    I haven't owned a dog since I was kid back in the 70's, but I have had the pleasure of hunting(upland, waterfowl) over some fine dogs, and awaiting the day I had my own.
    We are socializing the little guy, and with the exception of an explosion this morning while we ran an errand, the little guy seems to be adjusting to the new environment, and kennel.
    Its amazing how like children this little guy is, my daugthers have run him ragged up and down the street, little guy can hardly keep his eys open ,but still doesn't want to crash and go to sleep.
    Me and my family are looking forward to this new adventure.

    Thanx everyone for the welcome, my bad on the pics.
    These are the first day we got the little guy.

    The socialization is going well, he has adjusted to the crate and only cuts up if we are late.
    Currently working on name, and here/come during my early morning/nightime potty break/feeding times.
    The girls just get to play with him and run around. Plan is to have a family pet and a hunting companion.
