Sorry to Say it's not happening with the new pup after all
I should have held my tongue and not posted until I knew how this would shake out, but I was sure I was ready this time.
Between the breeder being a lot farther from my home than I thought, someone else (with 2 of her other Havs wanting that same dog), my work schedule which landed heavy for the weekend and make it near impossible to get the time off to travel, and feeling, after talking to her at length, some familiar hesitation about whether I am really, truly prepared to handle a puppy, I got cold feet for about the 10th time since I started this whole process and bowed out. That dog will probably have a better life with the other family. It's like the stress of that rescue dog fiasco really imprinted on me and I still can't shake it off.
I'm gonna disappear for awhile, no need to respond to this thread because I really don't even want to read follow-ups, I'm too darn sad about this whole thing, and I am going "off dogs" for awhile until I get some other areas of my life more in balance.
Thanks for all the great advice, though, it's been fun reading all the stories and seeing everyone's pics. I think a Hav is in my future at some point, just not right now.
