    Programing takes a bit with one of thoseannounce1 ......she has an auto coupler on the front endsign1 ....take a knotted old sock and hold it in and she will latch onto it real fast.....sometimes they don't uncouple well though:curse: !

    Guess I just will have to break down and buy my own DCC. LOL

    She's an 0-4-0 -- all speed - hardly any pulling power :) You have to "Re-fuel" her every chance she gets :) :) And yes, Like the Pomeranian we have, she'll find a human to latch on to and not let go easily... :D

    Mine follows my wife wherever she goes, yells (barks) at her when she gets home from work "How dare you leave me home!!!???!!!) :D Lays down under her chair .......until he hears me open the refrigerator door.. He knows I'm a soft touch - "accidentally" dropping food for the doggie :D :D :D

    COngratulations on th elatest addiiton to your fleet!.

    e made the same mistake, er I mean opened our hearts to a lab mix puppy about four months ago. Don't worry, he's finally house broken (well most of the time) and hardly ever chews on the furniture anymore. On the plus side, he has taken to climbing into bed with Mrs. Doc and I about 4am every morning.

    But they're right, she's a cutie!

    Thats so funny. Totally something my husband would do to me. But hey- he makes the money...

    Have fun, my sis programmed them for a living before she decided to go int the fire service... and she has worked miracles on my 2 labs in just minutes each visit!

    We have a lab mix as well. Her name is Dora (My daughter named her.) and she's 3/4 lab and 1/4 mystery mutt. She's only 6 months old and already as big as a moose.

    Stripes-

    Hey! Me too! Have a look at the Digitrax Zephyr I got!

    She's a Golden Doodle. That means half Retriever, half poodle. They are not supposed to shed.

    Thats a cute looking 0-4-0...With sound no doubt.
    I have one too...But it's three years old, and after a couple of months I got the programming down.
    And it's "User Friendly" also.
