Decided to join the fun

Postby Angie » Mon May 13, 2013 12:27 pm

Hi guys, after waiting for two years I finally got my dream pup :grooving: Sophie is 18 weeks old and exactly what I wanted.
I started field training with her a few weeks ago and she is doing really good. Whenever we go to field training with friends they throw some puppy marks for her. Hope to find more people in my area to train with.

PS: I live about 45 Minutes west of Chicago :hi:

Most people west of 39 consider any thing east of Aurora Chicago.

Hi Angie, welcome aboard. My mothers side of the family is from the Tri city area you referred to. Never did like going up there to visit. They did a whole lot of sitting around talking about stuff but never went and did anything as it was always one to two hours or more driving to get out of town. Actually down here we consider anyone east of I39 and north of I80 Chicago. Sorry ! I know there are a lot of hunters, fishermen (women), shooters and dedicated sportspeople from that area. It's just that they are so totally over populated by minorities that their votes don't count for much.
