Hello to all members from Powhatan VA. I recently retired after having heart surgery Feb. 2015. I'm 66 so it was time to retire-having the dogs keeps me from being too bored LOL
My wife and I have had GSDs most of our married lives--a total of 9 actually 3 females and 6 males--We now have a couple of seniors (just like me)---Beau 12 & 1/2 year old male---Cody 11 & 1/2 year old male and a 4 & 1/2 year old female Aussie.
Looking forward to some interesting GSD stories--tips and help here on the forum.

Thanks, Vaughn

Greetings Vaughn,

Welcome to the board and welcome to retirement. I've been off payroll for 4.5 years and have no trouble filling the days. I find that I dislike schedules now more than ever, though.

2 GSDs in residence now, known on the board as The Barker Sisters II; and Barker the Elder the 2nd and Barker the Younger the 2nd. 8+ & 4+. We share plenty of silly dog, stupid handler stories here.
