Arrival Story: My husband was in Islamabad, Pakistan with the Dept. of State. He was the guardian of another dog in Islamabad and this dog got stung by a bee on his lip. My husband and a friend rushed the stung dog to the vet where the friend asked about the availability of German Shepherds. The vet happened to have two pups, a male and a female about 2 months old both living in a wooden box in the mud. The friend took the female that day and after a swift e-mail exchange with me, my husband picked up the male the next day. Beau then endured a 26 hour flight in a crate to come to the United States to be with me. My husband was finally able to permanently join us a few months later.
Bio: Beau has a personality that is pure GSD. He is a happy dog but not an overly affectionate dog. The photo of Beau eating from his dish - with his paw in the dish - is the first day my husband got him. My husband decided that Beau needed food more than a bath - fortunately Beau ate his first good meal quickly and soon had a bath! Beau has matured into a real fine dog. He is content to lay around if I am on the computer or otherwise just hanging out. However, the second his favorite toy is touched, or I put my shoes on - he's ready to play or go for a walk! He carries himself with all the dignity of a registered purebred (being from Pakistan, he has no papers). His bearing is almost regal, until Scout starts teasing him, then he reverts to his puppy self - too funny!!
Went to the vet with Dad yesterday, and I'm doing very good. I even lost a couple of pounds - Mom said I needed to - harumph - I'm not too sure. Anyway, I got a clean bill of health (well, except for a little bit of ick in one of my ears). Anyway, all in all, I'm good.
Well, after the vet and getting poked - Dad and I went to this park - and guess who was there???!! Mom and Scout!! We sure had fun saying hello - Dad said I'd better cool it otherwise folks would think I was 'attacking' Mom - hey -I was just saying hello!! We walked around a little while, there were lots of folks there and even some other critters - like donkeys and sheep. No hot dogs tho - Dad, Scout and I were real disappointed...I don't think Mom cared too much - she's just crazy tho.
Well, the excitement wasn't over. A snake came in our yard and Scout and I had to keep it busy until Mom got Dad and Dad took it out of our yard. That snake was NOT happy - he was slithering all over the place and just being not nice. But, nobody got bit and the snake is ok (I guess, I didn't go looking for him).
