Hey everyone! Let me introduce myself -- I am Abby (my friends call me ABS) and my family and I recently brought our new little bundle of joy home. "Jake" was named by my 5 year old son who is totally in love with him already! Jake is super sweet, totally rambunctious and a wonderful chewer...oh and he totally loves to go potty in my house :doh: But we are learning...we have only had him for a week and I can tell he is pretty smart! I am looking forward to getting to know you all and your GR family...and I am sure I will have a TON of questions! I have never owned a GR before...but have wanted one since I was young. This will be my first long haired pet...and I do have some questions about grooming..and how early I should start sending Jake so he gets used to being groomed.
