Hello everyone! We are getting a puppy soon who's mom is an American Eskiomo and dad is a Jack Russell. He is only 4 1/2 wks old, so it will be 3 or 4 more weeks still before he comes home, although we have had "visitation" (as my kids call it) almost since his birth. We are really excited about our new puppy as we haven't really had a dog since we had to put my dog down (he was 15) when my kids were very young. My youngest is now 10 and so all 4 kids should be old enough to help properly care for and train a new puppy. We are using all our resources (including this site) to make sure that we are well educated,for "Ranger's" sake!
