Don't kill me...I didn't take any pictures!!!
When we got there we immediately went to see the puppies and it was just overwhelming with puppyness!!! They were everywhere and we sat on the ground and the breeder handed us all the boys. A couple went right for my face and gave me lots of puppy kisses and nibbles, and then they all were nibbling on my fingers! One went right for my husband and was kissing all over his face, and then fell asleep in his arms so he just hung on to him. One in particular was pulling at my sweater...I cannot describe it to you..they were just everywhere pulling and tugging and nibbling...it was wonderful but so overwhelming to track which one was which, even though they had different color collars on!!
Coming out of today we have our top 3, but next time I'd like to spend a couple minutes with each individual one so I can get to know all of them. So far both my husband and I like 2 equally, followed by the third. There is one more that we need to spend more time with though. One in particular was rambunctious and the breeder also said he was more into rough housing and a bit wild...he may be our last choice. With that said though I'm sure their personalities can change week to week..right? Now I'm so anxious to see how the decisions are going to go and which ones the breeders will pick for show, and then which ones will be left. Chances are we will get to pick one that we want right? I just hope at least one of the ones we like will be left...
No visiting next week...the breeder will be busy at a dog show and she invited us to come along so I think my husband and I will go there. So our next visiting day will be Feb 2, then the 9th is the important day when we really need to make our ranking, and then he will come home later that week sometime after the 13th.
I just left about an hour and a half ago and I already want to go back. It's starting to set in now that we will be bringing a puppy home, but now I just want to know which one it is...
Oh and also the breeder decided on the theme of the litter. Its going to have an "Angel" theme to commemorate the Sandy Hook tragedy. She will name her picks after the children that were killed. Now we are going to have to think of a good AKC name with "angel" in it. Maybe one that goes with his call name Champ....so far we thought of "guardian angel" or "angel in the outfield." Let me know if you guys have any ideas!
Sorry again about the pictures..I promise to make up for it once he comes home!
