Well I spent half my night last night emailing back and forth with a breeder here in Florida. Then more time convincing my husband that 1.5 hrs is not that far to go for a dog hah. I know I just posted about my sad pet shop experience the other day but I'm really excited and wanted to share. If it makes any sense this feels so much more 'right'. I love that both her parents are on site so I can see their temperament/looks. I wish we could go see her today but we have to pay a pet deposit to our apartment before we get a dog. So we're paying the breeder a deposit to hold her until Saturday when we can go. Eeep! We're going to shop for puppy supplies sometime this week.

Update 9/4: Sent off the deposit for her today! I think we're going with Capella for her name. I'm so excited the next three days need to fly.

And my favorite so far...

Her eyes look so pretty!

This is going to probably make me sound a little dorky but I couldn't sleep last night thinking about her hah. I really wish we could have gone today. I don't know how I'm going to wait! Hopefully this time next week I'll be posting pictures of her at home with me!

When I saw the first pic-I actually sucked in my breath really fast like when you get scared--but in this case it was because of the adorable-ness! Look at her little fat tummy! She looks like she sleeps super-soundly half of the time, and then goes nuclear the rest of the time (Boston owners know what I mean!) Her muzzle flaps look SO soft and kissable--puppy bref! Let me be the first to congratulate you!

Heh, I paid an extra $200 (omg) for my breeder to drive Winston from Ottawa to Peterborough (approx. 4 hours).
No worries :D

I love that picture of her with those sad puppy eyes. It makes me want to pick her up and give her a big hug! Welcome to the family. :)
Lori: Griffie Pufflunat16 on September 3rd, 2007 10:30 pm (UTC)
I think I hold the record so far - 18 hours (9 there, 9 back) to get Griffin. Congrats and enjoy the baby!

Wow! I bet it was worth every mile though! :)

Cute! I drove from Philadelphia to Columbus, OH (and stayed over night in a hotel with a friend and my two resident pups) to rescue my most recent pup, Probert! :)

She's gorgeous. How many weeks is she??
Madalynlovebird on September 4th, 2007 05:27 pm (UTC)
She's 11 weeks. Not sure about in the pictures. I think it's good she had a lot of time with her parents I just hope it doesn't make it harder for her to come home with us.

Adorable! I want to squeeze her (but not too hard, of course).

I think I got lucky when I got Lainie--her breeder lived in my town, maybe a mile or two away from my house.

Oh she is beautiful Congrats!
