our new pup xxxxxxxxx
we went to visit the breeder yesterday and met the most amazing and beautiful batch of puppers you could possibly imagine. They are only 7 weeks old so have another two weeks before they can go to their new homes - five bundles of pooing, weeing, licking, biting pups x
we were greeted by both the pups mum and dad at the gate and shown with much pride in to the puppies pen (kitchen in front of lovely wood burner - GREAT breeder!)
the girl already had a home, and one boy had been chosen - that left three.......
i have never had to make such a hard decision in my life - three sweet pups all jumping up shouting pick me, pick me......
it almost broke my heart
i was able to narrow it down to two on the basis of coat colour and one pup just looked me in the eye and looked unimpressed when i picked him up
the other two tried to eat me alive!!!
so two puppers
when we first arrived i was handed a pup who was delicious - cuddly, wiggly, licky and very handsome
Stephen was handed another - equally as cute
after an hour these were the two chaps to choose from
but which one??????
my heart was stolen by the first pup but i preferred the shape of the second pups head -
ack - what a choice to have to make
but make it we did
it was to be the first pup i held - despite his wider head!!!!
a blue collar was placed around his neck and he was chosen!!!!
i kid you not - even as the other chap was placed back in the pen i was not totally sure if the right decision had been made - could we have two????
(very) sharp no from Stephen
and it was not helped by the fact that the rejected one proceeded to pounce at the chosen one in a desperate bid to remove the collar - a definite case of it should have been me!
but, a coffee and a cuddle later and we were bonded - our new boy x
he met talulla and bean - his new big sisters
talulla refused to look at him, or me
bean just frothed at the mouth, she does this when she is anxious - she hates going to new places as she feels that we are going to leave her there forever :(
the frothing did not look good, a lady selling her pups does not want to be greeted by a rabid looking dog with a crazy Ninja look in her eye.......
but still the boy was ours!
and here he is
can you guess what he is yet?????
not sure about his new collar
please note rejected pup looking on with disgust
other pups had by this time given up
they are not choosing us, so we do not need to perform!
they look like Labradors - but are a bit to big at seven weeks......
not a whippet
definitely not a Daschund....
mummy to the pups x
proud, proud daddy x
yep - we have got ourselves a Deerhound
he will not stay small for very long........
