When my dad was a kid he was into breeding and showing dogs. While he was getting his MBA from Babson College (first in his class, what can I say, I'm proud of him) he owned a dog grooming shop to pay his way through school and bred and showed Irish Setters and Sheepdogs. As a kid, we never had dogs but as a my dad nears retirement my mom and him started to breed and own National Caliber field trial English Pointers. His website is pretty cool, you should check it out.

About 5 months ago Casey and I adopted Mabel, a 2 year old Rottweiler. It's my first dog and we are learning a lot. Rottweilers are very smart, loyal, yet very stubborn animals and it's not just a dog you can let have it's way or it will dominate. Mabels been coming around lately and responding very well to the little training we have been doing. Ironically, this mountain bike racer from Ohio breeds Rottweilers that look very similar to Mabel. I think I want a puppy.

Heather and I just had a laugh over this post. It seemed like such a good idea when we first saw Bodhi. Like those Rott pups, his cute looks suckered us into taking his little turd cutter home. Today he tried to eat a hornet of all things. He opened his mouth and the thing flew out before stinging him. Pups are so much fun. We wouldn't trade him (or Dharma) for the world.

Dave, If you need a place to stay for the Sac MTB race shoot me an email. Have a couch & a bed that is all yours if you want it. I May not race but will give you the run off the house; don't live too far from Sac either.
