    Default Hello from Portland, OR.

    Hello All,

    I've been lurking around these forums for a few weeks now, so I figured I'd introduce myself. We just got our lab pup about 8 weeks ago. He is a yellow lab - name is Deegan. So far we are having a blast with the little guy. He is very sweet, smart and aims to please. He obviously has his pup tendencies - chewing, nipping, etc. But he was potty trained within a week of bringing him home... he knows, sit, wait, leave it, five, paw, gentle, circle, down and crawl. So eager to learn!

    A little about myself - I'm a Network Engineer in Portland, Oregon. My wife is a vet tech/hospital manager at a local vet clinic (independently owned). We have cats, a bearded dragon and now Deegan (we call him lil' D). We have lost our two previous dogs this year - a lab mix to cancer in August, and most recently, our beloved Pit Bull from cancer on December 1st. They were our lives - still struggling with the loss of both of them. They were both too young to go - both of them were 8 years old. The lab mix was a rescue, the Pit Bull we've had since he was 8 weeks old.

    Deegan is growing up fast! He's 35.2lbs and he'll be 15 weeks on Wednesday. I'm hoping I figure out how to post a pic of him on here... this was a picture from last week!

    I've been reading some great posts/advice/etc from the members here. You can always learn something, no matter how much you know you think!

    Hmm - strange.. I edited my post and added a pic, but now that message has disappeared. Bear with me while I figure this out.

    Ha! We are in east Multnomah county, too! So I know all about the winds!

    He sure is cute, if you use photobucket you can re-size it so it will work as your signature picture.

    Welcome from another Portlander (on the not-so-windy west side). Deegan is really cute and sounds very smart!
