New member, swissy and owner
« on: September 12, 2006, 08:48:21 am »
Hi,
I'm the new and happy owner of a 14 month old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog named Emmett.  I'm not new to big dogs, as my family had Rotties all my life.  However, I am new to being the one with sole responsibility of a puppy's life and raising.  I'm excited about this.  I am a little overprotective, and I know that is bad, and I'm trying to break it, but I just already am so in love with Emmett I can't help it!!  Anyone with advice or questions feel free to message me.
-B

Hi, I'm Kat and my crew is listed below in the signature.  Emmett is a cutie!  I decided that my next permanent addition to the house is going to be a swissy.  I'm already getting books and doing the research.  Can't wait to see more pics of your boy and hear all the stories.

Shiner - Malinois x Ridgeback
