Hoos, your new baby is a stunner. Lucky you. We have Pyrs, but I love Bernese too. They are so sweet.

Not little cute puppy yipes but howls like a wolf. Every dog behavior is magnified x 10 at the shelter but it was enough to at least make me come home and read about the breed: Norwegian Elkhounds. The attendant said they will run and never stay home and grow really big like a horse. Of course that just got my son even more excited because his ultimate dream is a having a horse.

And there is that little factor of checking with my husband. Although I've learned through the years these things go much better if I just surprise him Wink.

That comment made me giggle! Those dogs were cute. I'm sure it was fun to go look at them.

Sorry cant talk you out of it. We have 6 at the moment. At one stage we had 2 puppies at the same time while one was getting old enough to go overseas and it was sooooo much easier with 2. They keep each other entertained all day and instead of chewing on our stuff they chewed on each other.

What I would not recommend is 10 at one time that's a bit of a nightmare!

Don't recommend fostering if you have a soft heart for critters, unless it's one of those arrangements where they take the puppy back no matter what. (Maybe socializing pups for guide dog and other training? I don't know what's required for that.) I took in my kitty as a foster a year ago.....he's now 16 months old, 12 pounds, and still shedding all over my floor, disemboweling stuffed animals, and dragging my old shoelaces around the house. Just could never bring myself to return a cat or exchange it for another one like a library book or something. If I do any more "fostering", they'll put me on one of those animal hoarder shows, too.

Like the time he said no cats, if you bring home a cat I will really be upset, I don't like cats. So I came home from my sisters house with 2 kittens. Now guess who is the one who makes sure the cats are in the garage when it storms - Mr. No Cats. Ha ha ha, he is full of it.

This is kind of what I was wondering about. And then we already all the stuff: kennel, puppy food, toys etc.

I'm waiting for now so I can read about the breed and see what happens at the shelter. I will go back in a week and see if any are left. I have this really weird feeling that the attendant was lying to me about how old they were and I'm not sure why he would do that so I got a strange vibe about it. I've been around a lot of puppies and we just took in a puppy at 6 weeks old this winter. These pups are a large breed and to me they did not look to be a day over 6 weeks old and he said they were 10 weeks. I could be confused. It wouldn't be the first time!

No puppy but we did connect with this sweet little chihuahua! He is 2 years old and was just left at the shelter after hours, no note, no name, no explanation.

I can't help but wonder what his life was like before. 

I've never owned a tiny dog before. It is a whole different experience!

Yes, I keep hearing Antonio Banderas voice every time he looks at me. He walked in the door and hopped right on the couch like he has lived here forever!
