Well ladies, you all know that DF and I have been wanting to start a canine family of our very own. We'd been considering all sorts of breeds..and had narrowed down our choices. Well, during Christmas I had a sudden epiphany. We couldn't buy a dog from a breeder or store when there were a zillion (rough estimate) puppies/dogs sitting in pounds and shelters all over the country. We decided we'd search all of the ones in our area untill we found the PERFECT dog for us. Well, one caught our attention a couple of weeks ago. Her name is Heidi. and she's a one year old yellow lab X. Of course, as soon as we laid eyes on her, we wanted her...but there was one thing stopping us. She was pregnant. Well, she gave birth to 9 puppies on Jan 3, and she'd have to spend a good 8 weeks with them before she could be adopted. Not that that deterred us in any way...it just slowed things down a little. We continued to keep an eye on her progress...checking out the site on a daily basis.
Now...tonight I sat down at the computer to see if they'd posted any pics of her babies yet...nope. BUT, they did post a pic of a brand new dog, Sulley. A 1 year old Newf!!!! He's gorgeous!!! Beautiful!!! Spectacular!! We called about him right away. Apparently, he'd been saved from being put down today. So...as of right now, we are in love with two dogs we haven't even met in person. I think honestly I'm swaying towards the Newf, but he's spending a night in a foster home with two cats. They are going to let us know tomorrow how that goes. There are pros and cons to both doggies.
What do you ladies think?? I'm torn. And yet...so excited. Either way, looks like there might be a D-O-G in the house very soon. YAY!!!! Here's a couple of pics.
