YAY I found the cord for my camera. Here are pictures!

We're moving! Terry's parents are giving us his childhood home and almost an acre of land. This means that we have to take out a loan for the repairs but it also means a big fenced in yard!

Details for each pictures are at my flickr account.


My current home at sunrise.

Pictures! Some of Grendal, three of the inlaws dogs and before pictures of our new house. )
Here's some pictures, finally that aren't crap. I'll show you one and then the rest you can see on my flickr account. They include Grendal, Luna and three of Terry's parents dogs' Drake: a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, Raven: a lab/dobie mix and Spike: a Shepard/husky mix (who we swear has coyote in him)


Grendal watches for intruders.

For the rest, click me.
Technically they aren't even pictures, they're screenshots of my webcam settings video screen. BUT they do show the doberman.

One of him standing there wondering what the hell I'm doing at the computer when I could be petting him.
One of his eye 'cause it's pretty.
One of him lying on the chair half asleep.

bad quality but still a doberman )
In order to accomplish this I had to juggle the webcam (one of the xbox 360 live vision cameras) AND the keyboard so I could printscreen.

[livejournal.com profile] justinluv, You inspired me to think of a way to do this. I'm going to attempt again when I have another set of hands and better lighting.

Thanks to some really good chicken dog biscuits Grendal's learning to do some tricks. His "act" includes:
- sit
- down
- paw
- other paw
- Rise (giving both paws and rising up on back legs)
- Speak
- Touch
- Crawl

Crawl & Touch are the two we're working on now, Crawl looks adorable as he army crawls across the floor. I want to teach "roll over" and "Praise Allah" (Head between his paws while lying down) but that's going to take time.

Here, for your viewing pleasure is a poor quality picture of Grendal taken the day of his neuter. Surprisingly he's completely healed and has been for about a week now.

Grendal sleeps and thinks about killing me for all this. )

Well Grendal is home at last, well he was on Friday but I certainly didn't have time to post about it. The breeder is excited about how quickly he's adjusting. Apparently other pups in the litter weren't eating their first night home, etc.

He's already going to the door and crying about 25% of the time, and eating well/sleeping well. As I type he's sleeping in a box we got from Costco for the cats while Luna attempts to get him to come out and play. She went from bring not at all excited about him being here, to being extremely excited and wanting him to play with her. He's not so sure as she's very big and with the exception of his paws he isn't.

With the exception of two accidents, one on the bed and one about twenty minutes ago he hasn't went to the bathroom in the house. Both were easy to clean and entirely my fault. After all, he cried both times I just didn't get him out the door fast enough. :)

He loves the cats, and I mean loves! He sleeps with Trigger [the youngest] as his pillow, and tries so hard to be friends with Pepsi. She's just really skittish.

Well I need to go do other things that can only be done whilst Grendal is sleeping. I shall update soon with pictures.

I'm strongly thinking that Grendal is going to be the name for him. I dreamt about him and Luna playing together, and the cats all playing together and the ferrets were oddly free-range. Weird dream but awesome nonetheless.

Because Hannah asked to see the mom and dad and because they're beautiful dogs, here is Littles (the mom), Kai (the dad) who's from Hungary and Grendals' granddad Pluto, who is a grand-champion in Hungary.

Not as big as the puppy pictures but big nonetheless )

There ya go!
