she's about 1.5 years old, GermShep X, was called "Tinkerbell" at the Humane Society Shelter, but I'm calling her Uma . [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Outstanding!!!

I know my Golden Retriever means the world to me. I'm sure your new addition will mean the same to you. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Of course you may get into situations like me, where in a bump clinic last winter the clinician asked us to be fluid and balanced like a cat and I had to look him in the eye and tell him I am a dog person not a cat person. Took him back for a minute.

Congratulations from another satisfied adopter from the Missoula Humane Society. We got our Maggie there 10 years ago. She has been one of the family ever since.

A good choice, Gonz! Glad to see you have spared the life of one of our 4 footed friends!

She has a happy face. Welcome, Uma! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Ah what a cutie! I am sure she is glad she found you. I Got Bo from the pound when he was 2-3 years old. Amazing how much easier a dog is than a puppy. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Gonz, nice dog. I've had several G. Sheps and I think it is very imp. that they go through obedience training. They are powerful dogs and very protective of family members. Have fun with her.

Gonz, you've earned my respect as a guy who's not threatened by an intelligent female. Treat her right, guy.

thanks to all of you!

I spent time yesterday morning researching breeds to try to guess what else is dominant in her besides German Shepherd. Apparently she's an Ainu (Hokkaido) cross, as her coat and head are similar to an Ainu, her lower legs and tail look Shepherd, her jawline is Shepherd (but shorter), but she has an 80% black tongue, which seems limited to Ainus, Chows and Shar Peis.

She is sweet, well-mannered, smart and athletic.

...which I would think would make her incompatible as a total opposite!

Check Perkins Miller's story (from the editor) in the current SKIING on folks and their dogs. A good read.

Jeez, GonzoStrike, what a bogus photo!
We both know that any official canine
photo from Mantana has to include
a pickup truck!

Sorry gonzo, I have to totally disagree with you. Your statement should read:
