Nick’s new training partner

We’re getting a puppy! In two weeks, we’re getting a Vizsla. Vizslas are hunting dogs (not that we’ll be hunting with it) but they are also naturally great running dogs.  We can’t wait to have a dog to run with, though we’ll have to wait until it is a year old before doing any serious running with it.  Vizslas are short-haired dogs, so they won’t get too hot in the Michigan summers.  Personally, my favorite feature about Vizslas is that they are called the “odorless dog.”  They don’t have a strong “dog smell” which, to me, is a huge bonus.

When we get the puppy, he or she will only be 7 or 8 weeks old.  We will “get” to go through all the potty training and crate training stages with it. It’s probably a good thing we don’t have any really expensive carpet in our house.

We’re still deciding on a name, so if anyone has any good suggestions, we’d love to hear them!

  1. How fun! They look beautiful. 🙂 Good luck with all the adventures that come with having a puppy! I’m looking forward to hearing some good stories at bible study….. 😉

  2. You’ll never look back. They are such great companions and will love all the running! How about Bailey, Coco, Hershey or something like Micah or Caleb
