    Hello Thunder….Just looking at that little face gives me the giggles.
    Live up to your name Thunder, you have a lot of teaching to do to help your new parents and family. :rofl:
    Our new pup taught a lot to us in the last 6 months.Roxy is a border collie and loves interactive balls , puzzles, chew toys and other puppy toys. And treats…:smt081 Never a dull moment.
    Sometimes I wonder who has who trained.
    Thunder is full of joy and happiness to share.:setc_005:

    Netty, Thunder is gorgeous. And speaking of being kept on your toes--look at the size of those puppy paws! Thunder is going to be a big, good boy.
    Thank you for the photo.

    Awww he's so adorably cute @Netty.
    A belated happy birthday to you .

    This is the other breed my parents liked , had as our pets, along with Labradors. I still can't say which I prefer as they're both great dogs and full of character. :):like:

    Congrats. He really does look mischievous. I like that wonky ear, it gives him character.
    I am so happy for you.

    Congrats. My son was raised with/by our German Shepherd. Wonderful, beautiful dogs. Now to survive puppyhood ;) I need to refinish multiple pieces of furniture this summer from my terrier’s toothy stage. Don’t know how it happened since I was right there with her each time:oops:

    Jewell… puppy damage it literally seems to come along with the territory. Some dogs breeds are a bit more active than other breeds. Just to name a few damaged goods since puppy . In six months - the flooring was literally pulled up in pieces in one section, doors chewed, shoes, and the pet bed - chewed all the stuffing out. But the biggest problem is having to potty train a pup in rainy winter when everything is muddy outside and the pup gets the Zoomies and races thru the mud with glee…lourdy how many times the carpet has been cleaned. I lost count and on strike as we speak.

    I am very grateful that I have a medium breed . Damage compared to larger breeds can be devastating.
    This Dane puppy looks so proud of his accomplishments ….

    It's not just when they're puppies, Moss pulled up the flooring while i was out with the others, he found a loose bit in a corner, i think that he was trying to make his bed.
    Another time the plug sockets got broken in 2 somehow, when i left Logan and Moss together, they were always playing together.
