Hunter's Revenge

This is our new addition to our family. We named him Hunter (Hunter's Revenge on papers) cause in German, Jagir means Hunter...So, we thought I only made sense to call him Hunter's Revenge because of how we lost Jagir.
We got this baby from the same kennel we got Jagir. In fact, he came from the same Dad as Jagir. That was a blessing.
Hunter has added some peace to our lives sense the tragic loss of our sweet Jagir. I felt a little guilty, Ok.... a lot guilty, for getting him before we really "got" him. I understand some have mixed emotions about 'replacing' a dog lost. I am not the only one I have to consider here. I have 6 kids that need this dog in more than one way. And so do my husband and I....
He has brought great happiness to our lives and I don't regret making the decision to get him.I only regret the circumstances.
Hunter fits right in.
He weighed a whopping 4.5 lbs when we got him at just under 6 weeks old. He is almost 8 weeks old now and weighs in at 6 big ones.
He sleeps wonderfully in his big wire doggie cage we bought him and hardly ever even whimpers when we put him to bed for nap or all night.

I would like to add, that we are taking the steps to ensure nothing happens to him. Wayne is adding a couple of wheels to our very heavy gate and I am gonna do training to keep him from going beyond his boundaries. He is already sitting pretty and sitting down on command, Well.......with treats of course.
Our 7.5 month female does all those wonderful tricks wtihout treats. She is just good like that, LOL.
Anyway...just wanted to introduce the new arrival. Who could resist those baby blue eyes?!?
