Just venting. I get my puppy the weekend of January 26th. Evaluations of the litter will be done the last week, starting Saturday, Jan. 19th, so we won't even know which puppy is ours until after those occur. I'm getting really tired of waiting!
We have followed this breeding starting back in September, after the national, when it was just an idea. We watched through the inseminations, we waited a month to find out the bitch was pregnant, we were on pins and needles during whelping and finding out there were only four pups not the eight reported on the ultrasound, and we have watched the puppies from the first hour they were born...
...to our latest visit a week ago...
...to the last updates last week.
We have a crate, x-pens, bitter apple, nature's miracle, toys, and two baby gates. We haven't been able to see the puppies this weekend cuz the breeder is out of town over the holiday. And now I'm just going crazy waiting.
Yes, I'm obsessed. No, it's not healthy. No, I don't care!
I just want the puppy, and I have no outlet, and there's nothing I can do to find out which one is mine or to bring him home even one day earlier. I need a waaaaaaambulance!
I know many of you in the Puppy section have been through exactly this not too long ago, so I hope you don't mind my rant.
My only question at this point is: when I finally get the puppy, how long will it be before I wish I'd never gotten him?
Thanks for letting me vent!
