Meet Prairie

Tom and I took the plunge into puppy parenthood on Friday with Prairie the German Shorthaired Pointer. We found her online and got her from a rescue near Orlando. She is 10 months old, almost fully grown and super sweet.

She LOVES to retrieve the raquet ball and we hope to work on swimming soon. She is housebroken and crate trained but we are working on walking on a leash (very hard not to pull when your neighborhood is as overrun with squirrels as ours is!), sit and stay. She is pretty funny and will throw the ball for herself if you don't. She loves to run and this morning she went on a 45 minute run alongside my bike and did great!

She moves FAST - but here are a few pics.


  1. She is beautiful! We raised English pointers when I was a kid, but I have always LOVED German pointers! Congrats on the new addition!

  2. I can't wait to meet Prairie in person. She LOOKS so intelligent and so curious. Thrilled that she has found a home like yours and that you and Tom have such a great pet. Congratulations!
