Talking Update on "Pixie Dust"

Ok--I'm really freaking out b/c this is happening so fast! For those of you who saw my last post about getting a one year old, here's the latest:

The breeder told me that she was to be a show dog, but one tooth grew in crooked. So, she's reluctantly selling her for $2000. Both of her parents have been health tested and passed.

She's on the smaller side, but not too small--"moderate" was her wording. She said she'd be perfect for a nursery school--quiet, loving, outgoing yet gentle natured. She compared her to one of the champions on her site who is beautiful.

Aggghhhh!! I literally have butterflies in my stomach!!

Does anyone know how much spaying costs in NY? I have NO idea! I can't believe I might have a Hav soon!

Still don't know about that name, though. DH isn't going for it! I think I like Lucy (Lulu for short) or Molly. I have some others on my mind, but if anyone has any good ones, please share!

Thanks!
Susan

Oh, the wonderful anticipation!

When my daughter (Maryvee) and son-in-law were waiting for all the final decisions about getting Billy (who was 16 months at the time), the waiting was deliciously UNBEARABLE! I know that sounds like a contradiction of sorts, but the sweetness and poignancy of THE WAIT only makes the "bringing home" even more intense! And then the LOVING is even better!

There is truly nothing like having a HAV!


AND...I agree on the "Pixie Dust" (sounds like a street-drug!), but what about "Tink"?

Susan, where in NY. I paid over $300 each for my dogs to be spayed/neutered. If you live on LI, or nearby, you could use North Shore Animal League. They do low cost s/n. You could also go through Friends of Animals (google them). They used to have a low cost s/n program also.

As for "smaller size", I would try to pin her down a little more. Shelby is on the smaller size compared to some of the dogs on the forum. She is 1-1/2 and weighs 11.4 lbs. Kodi is 2-1/2 and about 13 lbs.

Michele--
I'm in Merrick! I didn't know that North Shore would do dogs that you didn't adopt from them.

I have a friend that's a vet in Bellmore, but I hate to ask him b/c I don't want him to think I want a favor.

Thanks for the info!

Where are you on LI?

Susan,
I wish you the best in your endeavors....owning a Hav has been one of the greatest gifts our family has ever had. Please keep us up to date with your future puppy.

Oh the anticipation...

Regards,
'Lo

Don't get nervous. I'll be here for you if you need anything. Michele gave you good information about spaying. I may even use North Shore rather than my regular vet (Wantagh Animal Hospital). You can call her anything you like and you'll get more names here than you can handle. Did she say she looks like Bora? If so, she'll be gorgeous.

This is such an exciting time for you. I can't tell you how happy I am for you.

This is all very exciting!! Did the breeder say how much she weighed? Have you seen a picture yet? She might be easier to name after at least seeing a picture. Make sure that you get the parent's Cerf numbers, etc so you know for sure that the health testing was done.

Susan,
I'm in the NY/CT area and our spay cost around $600. We had blood work done as well though which brought up the price. The procedure has become much better than it once was so I wouldn't worry too much. There are quite a few good vets near your breeder which you could look into. I would ask her which one she goes to as they would probably then be familiar with the breed and maybe even with your dog. It could be a more relaxed environment to have the spay done in. Best of luck and I'm so excited for you!
