OK, I thought this day would never get here! I am FINALLY the one who is picking up my new puppy tomorrow! I can't tell you all how excited I am.

My out of town company left a half hour ago and I plan to skip church and spend the day getting all Duncan's stuff out and ready for him. Fresh towels in the crate, cut the tags off the toys, set up the baby gates, pour the puppy food into the bins.... YEE HAW!!!

I've already cried over the "Marley" article in the Sunday paper pullout (very neat, if you get the "Parade" magazine.) I know this puppy will not be Baxter, it's why I purposefully looked for a breeder whose dogs look completely different than he did. Duncan is going to be his own person and it's going to be good.

My flight doesn't get in until after 5 tomorrow night, but if I am organized maybe I can post a photo before bedtime....

Cross your fingers that Duncan sleeps thru the plane ride!!!! Hey Merlin's Mom... if you have some free time this week maybe you'd like to come over and meet Duncan and smell his puppy breath !

Here is a photo of Duncan sent by his breeder, Nancy. He is laying on the box I mailed containing the carrier for his trip, collar, toy etc. Note the edge of the box is chewed off... one of her other dogs found the box before she did :)

Congrats, I can imagine how excited you are. When I got Jacey I woke up extremely early and then had about four hours to wait before I had to head out to go and get her. Looking forward to seeing pictures when you have a chance to post them. CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations on the big day finally getting here. I remember those last days before Bama came home. We were on vacation and almost came home early to go pick him up, we were so excited.
Welcome home Duncan and welcome to the forum.

YAY!!! I would love to get a whiff of some puppy breath! LOL!!

Duncan looks way too cute in the picture. Can't wait to see more! Thursday day might work, or maybe on the weekend. Either way we look forward to meeting you all!

Hope you have a great flight to pick him up, and a quiet one on the way back! I'm sure you'll be a hit on the plane! LOL!

Congratulations. You are in for a wonderful time. Not much for sleep but lots of fun. Duncan is gorgeous. I'm sure he will make lots of friends on the plane.
