New Puppy Stories

It is always exciting when someone posts that they are getting a new puppy. Would anyone like to share their stories? It would be great to include how you found your breeder and the process you went through until you finally brought your pup home. I would think that the breeders on the forum would also have some good stories?

Okay, I'll play. In the late fall of 2006 I almost got a female sable from an online "breeder." I fell in love with her. She was an absolute doll. It was only when I started asking a few questions (after doing a little research at HCA). The breeder went nuts on me and started screaming at me. I wound up running in the other direction, feeling as if I was abandoning the baby I already thought of as mine.

It took many months after that for me to find the forum (in April of 2007). I was so warmly welcomed and everyone wanted to help. I was given great references for some wonderful breeders and started to look around. With the help of Linda Fung, I found my sweet Milo on Linda Wanamaker's site (Prairiwind). The minute I saw his face, I knew he was mine. At Linda's urging I got in touch with Linda that night, which was a lucky thing. The next day there were so many calls. Everyone wanted him. He was older than I had considered (5 1/2 months) but he was perfect for me.

I wound up succumbing to MHS, like everyone else and the next year added my sweet Bailey to the family and the following year, Ms. Tuesday, my little rip. And my life was never the same.

<b>Just Milo and me, and . . . </b>Bailey makes three . . . until Ruby said, "hey, what about me?"

I love that story And puppy stories, IN general

But, I know what you mean when you say you fell in love at first sight! I know I did when I first saw my furbaby that it was meant to be
