I don't have a dog right now, but I will be getting a puppy this spring. I'm not on any waiting list yet, I will be contacting breeders around December though and hope for a pup between March and May. It feels like an eternity from now! I haven't had a dog of my own in five years! My roommate has two but it's not the same. What do/did you do while waiting for the right time for a puppy, or while you were waiting for a litter? I feel like I'm just staring at the calendar right now.
