My husband and I live in NY with our wonderful german shepherd. Although I post as Gibbs, that is our dogs' name.....my name is Andi. Gibbs is a german shepherd true to the breed. He is smart, loyal, playful and silly and he talks a lot! The best thing about him is that he always wants to be helpful so we give him jobs to do. The funniest thing is he does is when we have thunderstorms, he comes into the bedroom and hides his head under the blanket on my side of the bed. He is very special and we feel special owning him. This group has already been very helpful to us and I hope to return the favor.
