I thought I would introduce myself and my new puppy Gideon. His AKC name as you've probably guessed is Gideon Walks with Justice.
I got him on November 29th. I had been waiting for him for quite some time before that...or at least my mother had been secretly. I lost a dog about two months ago and my mother contacted a breeder and had them match my personality up with a pup. Gideon was the one :-) He is the only chocolate boy of the litter.
I'm so happy with him. I have always wanted an AKC dog to do some showmanship handler things with. He's already showing interest in frisbees and seems very smart! But most of all he's very cuddly.
<br /><br />Eight Weeks!
Ah, what a sweet little boy! I know you must be so excited. Congratulations!! ;D
Welcome and congratulations. He looks really sweet!

Very cute. Congrats on the puppy.
Just a word of advice, hold off on the frisbee tossing until the pup is over a year. It might just be coincidence, but our Maddy had this great aptitude for catching frisbees and we fed that desire in her even though we knew it was recommended that you don't over-exercise lab puppies to protect their joint development. Maddy ended up with Elbow Dysplasia. She might have been genetically predisposed to it, or it could have been a direct result of her frisbee jumping/catching/landing hard on her feet.
Welcome to the forum. Gideon is a cutie.
Welcome and best of luck with your new puppy. Adorable picture.
