    Good news/bad news/"dawww" news

    Welp, I have been told by my breeder that it is official - out of Marlie and Stella, only Stella is with puppies, and since I currently have the 8th position in waiting for a puppy, I doubt I'm going to get one from this litter. It's kind of disappointing, because I REALLY wanted to have a dog in the spring time because I know its a lot easier to train your dog and stuff in the spring (or at least that is what I have been told).

    Good news though! One of her other dams (Angie) went in to heat and should be coupled soon, so she would have her dogs by about mid-May and I should be able to bring home my pup in mid-July! I'm trying to find the silver lining in this, which is that I will probably be in the top 3 for picking my puppy, so hopefully that will give me a better choice in personality and temperament. So yeah, that's why I only have my little Samus as my signature now.

    And on an "AWWWWWWW" note - my roommie saw how down I was so she said "well, y'know Mikayla (her 4 year old daughter) has wanted a kitty for a really long time so how about you and Mikayla go pick out a kitty in April" so I'll be able to have a fuzzy thing to keep me company/busy until I can get my own dog, AND I'll have a dog that grows up with a cat so when I bring my dog to my S.O.'s (who is keeping the cats until we move in together), at least my dog will know how to interact with cats.

    Waiting is sooooo hard. We waited about a year for Annabel and it will be 10 months of waiting by the time we get Bigby this summer. I hope. We're still waiting to hear if the breeding took. It makes time go by so SLOWLY!

    Holy! I hope I don't have to wait THAT long for my pup! And Bigby is an adorable name, is he going to be another Newfie? Annabel Lee is so cute!

    This is also very true. My SO and I will often do childish things and when one asks the other why, we just reply with "Because I'm 6!"

    Bigby (named after a graphic novel character Bigby (Big "B") Wolf who is the Big Bad Wolf) is going to be a Eurasier. So not quite as big as a Newf! We don't have enough room for a giant male Newf and I definitely want a male.

    As for the 6 year old thing? Yeah. I have a wicked 6 year old streak! Buuuut my husband is way worse

    I totally feel for you! I wanted a GSD all my life and when I finally got put on a waiting list (i was at the top of the list) for a puppy from a breeder that I trusted and I wanted from; the dam ended up having a litter of all females!!!! What a drag that was! Just stay patient and things will go your way trust me, I couldn't w a i t to get my puppy, but looking back waiting isn't the worst thing in the world.

    Effisia - I remember now - they are GORGEOUS dogs! And that name is just PERFECT for that breed too!

    Tyler_X - Wow! As if! That would really suck (if you were waiting for a specific gender) and you didn't end up getting what you wanted. I don't care if I get a male or a female (although right now I'm leaning more towards a male dog, which is odd because I've only ever grown up with female dogs) but I know I want a merle as opposed to a tri, so I do believe you are spot on by saying its going to be worth the wait when I finally get him (or her!)

    I know how you feel. It will be at least 10 months before I can get my puppy. If I don't get a pick from that litter it will be another 18 months before the breeder has a pair I want a pup from.
