Mike,are you going to be talking up some of the Division One basketball signees from the State of Georgia and how the D-1 schools (including Kennesaw and Georgia State, Georgia Southern and Mercer) are doing? That’d be a nice break from football, football, football.

If you want the dog to have a connection with you you might be beettr putting it off until you can spend more time with it. I think German Shepherds are the greatest dogs, but they do need a lot of exercise. Maybe your mother wouldn’t want to spend that much time with it.References :
