Meet Flynn Ryder. We met him on Sunday, September 29th. That's when the first picture below was taken of him. We didn't take him home that day. So I nicknamed him Flynn Ryder since I thought we weren't ready for him. I couldn't stop thinking of him! Chris called later that week and asked if I wanted to go get him. Picture #2 was taken on Saturday, October 5th when we brought him home! That just happens to be the same date we brought Gabby home 11 years ago.
Chris has always wanted a German Shepherd. He's been working on my for a while now. We wanted a black & tan and I preferred a female since they are 20 lbs smaller than the male GSD. However, I fell in love with this beautiful, black boy GSD! I'm pretty sure we all fell in love with him.
We tried calling him something other than Ryder since that was a nick name given to him jokingly. Magnus was at the top of the list and for a few hours he was Magnus. That became too confusing with our other guy Max. So we went back to Ryder. It fits him well!
I took him for his first check-up that following Monday. He was 11 weeks old that day and weighed 12 pounds. I'm pretty sure we're going to have a big boy on our hands soon!
