Well...

Tomorrow is the big day. I wrote the breeder an email to say good luck and to let her know that her and the doggies are in our thoughts.

I keep going through scenarios in my head...what if there are no boys in the litter? What if there's only 1-2 boys in the litter? We are on the wait list for a boy, but the breeder reserves 2 for show puppies. Since we are on the wait list for a boy, does that mean we wont get a dog if there are little to no boys? I wrote our breeder recently to say that even if there are no boys, we still want a dog and so we would be happy with a girl, but she didn't respond and I'm not sure how this whole waiting list thing works.

I know I am probably over thinking this whole thing but that's how my mind works. My husband keeps telling me to think positively but it's so hard after everything we went through with our last dog. Regardless though, I am so excited for tomorrow and I'm not sure how I am going to make it through the work day! I don't think I'll be able to breath until I hear from our breeder, and hopefully she will call or email ASAP after the c-section (although I know she will definitely have her hands full).

Hopefully I will be updating tomorrow with good news! Until then I am thinking good thoughts and crossing fingers and toes that our little boy, or girl, is born tomorrow.

Great news!!!!!!

My little baby boy was born today! There were 6 boys, and 5 girls and all are healthy and happy! Our breeder sent us some pictures of the puppies being tended to after the c-section and we are hoping to receive more pictures tonight or tomorrow. Our breeder has been really wonderful about keeping us updated and sending pictures to us. Although my breeder has not explicitly stated that we are getting a dog, I sure hope we are since she continues to send us pictures and keep us in the loop (or else that would be cruel punishment).

My husband and I are so excited, we just returned from a celebratory dinner. I cannot wait to meet the little ones in 4 weeks, but in the meantime, all of the pictures will help to pass the time. I'm hoping all the puppies are doing well and that mama will have a quick recovery.

Tonight I will finally be able to get some sleep knowing that we will be blessed again soon with a new member of our family!

Just reading this post now....Congratulations, this is exciting news indeed. Our Girl Sage was delivered by c-section on Nov 8th, we get to bring her home on the 27th. I feel your anxiety and even so you won't rest easy for a bit yet I'm sure. I know for me it was hard to wait the four weeks to see them, and the other day when we learned our pick made it real...I'm beyond the moon and you should be too

I'm sorry to hear about Monte....loosing a dog is never easy. We lost a heart dog in August and while it still hurts, especially times like our first snow...Maggie loved the snow. Infact I went out to the garden today, where she is buried, and talked to her to let her know it was snowing and that I hope it snows where she is too...had tears etc...I think I will always miss those little things about her, but it has gotten easier.

Looking forward to updates as he grows...and pics too!!!!

Thank you so very much! I really appreciate you sharing your story! I literally just received some more pictures of the c-section and the mom looks miserable. I hope they recover quickly! I feel like I have so many questions for you...were you able to pick out your dog? If so, how did you know that she was the one for you? How have you prepared for her arrival?

I also really appreciate you sharing your story about Maggie. To be honest, it's been very bitter sweet. In some ways I feel really guilty about getting another dog, but I cannot continue to live without a dog, I just miss it too much. I think my biggest fear, or where my anxiety centers around, is getting used to a new dog and what that dog will be like. I just hope that I can love him just as much as I loved Monte. I also really appreciate you saying that you had tears today for Maggie...I still find it really hard to talk or even think about Monte, it's still just too painful. I've come to the realization that it may always be really painful, we survived a lot together and he was my first dog that was just mine (and my husbands).

Regardless, both my husband and I are so excited about this new dog. My husband had never had any animals besides Monte (and our current cats) and so his first experience with a dog was not entirely pleasant since we were always dealing with major health problems, although Monte's personality made up for it. But I want my husband to be able to experience what it is like to have a normal healthy dog, and I am really hoping that this is our opportunity.

So far the breeder has sent me two sets of pictures already tonight and I cannot wait to receive more...I keep checking my email! Oh boy, this is going to be a long 4 weeks!
