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!
