She's a babe. I have always done that, allowing the puppy/ kitten to choose me. Before I went to see the litter Loki came from, I talked to my trainer & she gave me so many instructions as to how to select our puppy. So I told her that I had always chosen a pet from my heart, just knowing it was right. She replied that that was a silly way to choose! So I went to see the babies with all these notes in my head as to what I had to look for ....one baby was spoken for, so I had four more baby boys to choose from. When I got there, & saw those plump balls of fluff waddling about, all that the trainer had told me flew right out of my head, & when the biggest ball of fluff waddled up to me, sat down at my feet & whimpered to be picked up, I knew he was the one for us. You have to pick from the heart & not from the head ..well that's what I think anyway.
I know what you mean about it all being so much more real once you have chosen your baby. We had gale force winds two days after I had chosen Loki. I kept waking up in the middle of the night, listening to the howling wind, & saying to my DH " I hope the babies are ok ...I hope Our baby isn't frightened". The breeder had them out in a shed with a grassed play area. I was so worried that the shed would blow down. The next thirteen days are going to seem like a lifetime to you. I passed the time browsing through pet shops, buying toys, bedding, etc .....it's like preparing for a human baby lol.
