Haha, that's great. Ours is mixed with a French Mastiff, so she is gonna be giant, probably 100+ pounds. I'm excited, love her to death.
OT: Are you a degenerate gambler?
but in a few months she's going to be shedding like hell. My dog is part Shepherd, and he sheds as much or more than the Husky mix we used to have. From what I've read since we got our current dog, Shepherds are notorious year-round shedders. If I'd known that at the time we got him, he wouldn't be with us now.
Sorry to be serious here, but...
...about 15 years ago I had a really serious gambling problem. It was fun, but it developed, and I eventually lost a ton of money that I did not have. Of course I tried to solve that by winning more money. I survived and moved on, but it was really close to causing tremendous problems for me.
I'm only writing this for those on here that actually do have a problem with gambling. I just want to say that my life is much more enjoyable when I stopped gambling. Even more so, I enjoy sports a lot more. I didn't think that was possible, but now instead of rooting on games b/c of my money interests, I can root on games b/c of who I like. That's fun.
If you do have problems, there is a way out.
I bet that you're glad that you quit.
I once had to empty my entire savings acount to cover three game tigers win streak in minnesota... I was young and thought that we couldn't possibly win three in a row at the metrodome. And we beat Radke.
I didn't have a savings account again until I was married...
That said, gambling is awesome! The thing to do is play things that cost less (parlays, pools, pick'ems, fantasy, etc.) that way you have some chance of the money you put out coming back to you...
I gamble on beer pong, and let me tell you what, it's amazing.
