I've just joined, so I thought I'd introduce myself. We have a beautiful elderly (13 next month) greyhound (Sophie) that we've had since she was 3, and we're about to get a Doberman puppy. We're due to pick the puppy (Jasper) up in early May. We've always had dogs but this will be the first time we've had a puppy, so I'm full of questions! I've got a couple of books on order from the library and have been doing some research on the net but nothing beats being able to talk to real people! I look forward to chatting with you all. Jo.
