    Default Hi from the coal region of Pennsylvinia - Pictures added!!

    Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. Matt from PA and just last week we had to put down our wonderful bully Maggie May. For the past 10 years she was the most enjoyable dog I have ever owned! Needless to say my entire family is devastated. We are at a loss without her. We don't know what to do with ourselves now that she is gone. My wife and I swore that we would never get another dog after her because there's no way we could be that lucky again. Well we lasted about a week and a half. Yesterday was my son's 12th birthday and Maggie was his best friend. When he made a wish before he blew out the candles he said Ruff Ruff since he knew your wish wouldn't come true if you say the name of what you wish for. So guess where I am going this Saturday! Found a good breeder about 2 hrs away who has 3 puppies left. More then likely I would like to get another female. So thats my story for now. I'll be sure to start a new thread when we get our new puppy.


    Well we went Saturday and picked up our new addition to the family! I am pleased to introduce to EBN our new puppy Isabelle! The kids call her Izzy for short. When we got out of the car and the kids came running outside the first thing my son said was "Maggie would be happy for us dad" Those words really gave me peace with the guilt I was having for getting a new dog so soon. Izzy has been an absolute joy the past 3 days. She's 12 weeks old and the first night the kids slept with her on floor. I got her to go in her crate the second day using a treat then after the kids tired her out I put her in for the night and the wife slept out on the couch in case she needed to go out in the middle of the night. I thought it was going to be a long niight of crying and barking since this was her first time in a crate. She wimpered for about 5 min then I heard nothing. Fell sleep and woke up the next day waiting to see a tired wife that didn't get any sleep. Well that little stinker slept ALL night with no waking up to pee and she didn't mess in her cage! I couldn't belive it and figured it was a fluke and the next night would be hell. Put her in the crate last night without a wimper, and slept all night again with out a mess or pee break!! How could one be so lucky!!! Everyone that came by just loves her and she loves giving kisses!! Here are a few pictures I took of the first day home.
