Puppy Woes

My husband and I have been following the exploits of our soon-to-be boston with great anticipation. The breeder is awesome and we have been in contact with her almost since his birth, but because of her strict no-visitors policy while her pups are under 8 weeks and could potentially contract something from strangers coming in off the street, we've only been seeing his lovely little face in photos in the hopes that we will soon be able to snorgle him in person.

Tomorrow was supposed to be the day, but she called us a few days ago to tell us that her computer crashed, and that she lost all her puppy documents so she can't sell him!! :( Broken hearted, we waited to hear if she could get it fixed in time. She called today to tell us her computer is back from the shop and everything is a go, and we did the happy dance of soon to be parents joy, but the breeder just sent me this disappointing e-mail only moments ago.

"Hi...My computer is messed. They didn't re-install anything. They backed my stuff up and left it in an inaccessable file. I need to manually reload everything by disk. Some disks I don't have (only the product keys). I am searching for downloads in order to access my files. If tomorrow is a go, it'd have to be late afternoon. If you give me a bit longer, I'll let you know for certain..."

I'm so so so heartbroken right now. To want something for so long and to just have it out of your reach, and then suddenly, when you are on the brink of finally being able to take your baby home, to be shot down. :( I'm so upset.

This is the dewd we are waiting to snorgle. Seriously, who wouldn't want to grab him and have him as soon as possible???!!!

Haven't made an appearance in a while

Well, my little nut got hurt today. I was at work, but my mom took her out to go potty and our trashy neighbors cat was wondering by the side of our house...well, Violet didn't like them on *her* property so she ran after the cat and she sorta tripped/got tangled up in the leash and she ran into the garbage cans and took a gouge out of her shoulder on one of the cement decorative blocks we have the cans sit on. She didn't yelp or anything and had been acting normal other wise from that....so my mom found blood and almost flipped b/c 1. Violet had been spayed and 2. she had been having diahrrea so she thought it came from that. But because of her heart condition we have to put her on Keflex so she's now on that, but is loving the extra attention and pampering but she's okay. On a lighter note, I'm including a pic of her when we were on our way to a park close by...she's got her head stuck out of the window (and don't worry, I was basically attached to her the entire time and had myself wrapped in her harness so she didn't get hurt...I'm such a paranoid mommy.)...enough chatting!! TO THE PICTURES! :-P

(she was playing football with her daddy...she was excited for the pre-season Bengals game that night)
