TODAY I find out if breeder's girl is pregnant...

Needless to say...the wait is terrible. Then the next level of anxiety (will there be a girl for me?)...Starting to think that maybe being an empty nester is too stressful.

This was the WORST. I didn't sleep for those two months. I went from third in line for a girl to second during the mum's pregnancy, but I was still so worried there would only be one girl in the litter. I will always remember the call from my breeder when she said, "there are three girls.." Good luck sleeping for the next little while. :p:

I didn't want to admit the lack of sleep...ugh.
Yup. Comes with the territory. I was way too excited/worried there wouldn't be a girl/looking forward to a new puppy to sleep. And just wait... once you get the call and you find out there IS a girl for you - then you have another 8 weeks to try to sleep through the excitement!!! :surprise:
