An Exciting Day in the Potter Household!

We got a new puppy today!  YAY!  Last week, my friend Carol sent me a link to a listing on Craig's List for a 4 month old giant Schnauzer.  I shared it with Rick and he did some stealth research with our friend Cindy, who has 2 giant Schnauzers.   She must have said the words that Rick wanted to hear because he quickly made the necessary phone call and we were on our way to Anchorage.



He had his ears cropped about a month ago and they still need to be bandaged up -- it makes him look a bit like a bull with horns!  He's so adorable ... we've decided to call him Jet.

Wish us luck!

I think I have a sister to your pup! I got mine from a family in eagle river after hearing about the litter from a lady that had just gotten a male from them. Then they had to put theirs up for adoption because their baby was scared of it.

Minna -- I tried to contact you, but couldn't. I think that our pups are definitely litter mates! We jsut love our little (hah!) guy!

You can email me at Minna.Abassi AT gmail.com. I think it's be great to keep in touch as time goes on! I think Jet is much larger than my Saffron.
