New here and to having a puppy!

Hi, I'm 19 and soon to be a student at the local University. I convinced my boyfriend that we should get a puppy, and we decided on a miniature daschund. We bought him from a reputable breeder, and the puppy was bred from a very impressive line of pureblood National showdog champions - I think that's why he is so smart and quick to learn. Still, I have never had my own puppy before and I'm a bit nervous. There is so much to know, it's like having a baby!

Welcome to the board, Chibi! You've come to a good place for info--lots of puppy owners, past and present, here. :D

And we'll all be bugging you for pictures when you're able to post some, so start picking out your faves now. :laughing:
