Hi,

I just registered here and thought I would say hello to everybody. I've been lurking for a few weeks and finally decided to register.

My wife and I are currently in the process of adopting an adult English Springer Spaniel. He's a male named Jake. He will be 4yo in September. We are going to meet him tomorrow (Friday, July 6) and if everything goes well, we will bring him home (3 hour drive).

I always had dogs in the family house and was only waiting to have a house myself before getting a dog. I fell in love with the English Springer Spaniel's breed because one of our neighbour has one and I started reading about them and thought they would fit really well with our lifestyle. We are active and I hope to bring my dog almost everywhere I go. I run too and would like him to run with me... we'll see how this goes. It also depend on his training (I think he never had formal training, but I'll know more about that tomorrow... I want to take a few obedience classes with him for sure).

The whole process is a little bit stressful, but really fun! We also have two cats and really hope that things go well between them. We were told by Jake's actual master that he is fine with cats... and our cats already have some exposure to dogs, so we hope for the best!

So that's about it for now... I'm sure I'll find tones of interesting info here and I'll make sure to post pics when we have Jake with us.
