Well, personally, I hate puppies
but these are adorable! Every time we've bred a litter, we ask ourselves whether or not we "need" another dog in the household. But we don't breed often and it's usually after we've lost a companion that has shared our lives for 11 or more years. Those first 8 weeks with the puppies is a hectic, sleep-deprived experience that can never be replaced because of all the joy we get from them. And when we add youth to an aging household -- people as well as dogs -- it has a way of making us all feel younger.
We still miss the ones that are gone. Tremendously at times. But we adore the new one whose life we get to help shape. Our newest, Scampy, has started to show us some signs of what we bred for. Not just physically -- although, he's looking pretty good these days -- but his personality, confidence and love of new experiences and new people. We were hoping for that but you don't always get what you want.
Enjoy Red. He's going to bring you joy for a lot of years.
