I wrote on Facebook yesterday that I was looking for a Bichpoo, and explained that I would love to adopt, but needed to find a breeder due to my allergies. My ENT doctor doesn’t even want me getting a hypoallergenic dog; but I’m not having kids…
I really shouldn’t have to defend myself. I had a friend who was adamant that puppies are terrible, okay, fine, yours was, but that’s not always the case. I am really hoping to read or listen to a book or two on training and such this weekend, just to have some ideas in my head.
Between my boss and coworker both suggesting to get a dog in the fall, due to housebreaking a puppy, with colder weather, and everything is dead so there’s not a whole lot of new smells. And being home a few days for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I chatted with one of my coworkers and she even just suggested taking the whole week off if I were to get this one that I’ve been working with breeder on and she would reschedule her Monday appointment – which was big for her!
I’m in talks with a breeder in Ohio… yes, all the way in Ohio. The one I am looking at is available, and is reserved for me, but to put the deposit down I’m waiting for some paperwork photos from the vet, and a few videos that I asked for. I’m just going to go with my gut. Not only do I want to see the pup, but I want to see the area in which he’s being raised.
I’m not trying to get my hopes up though; but I did get a set of bowls and some puppy poop bags. But that would be something that I would buy whenever I get a dog, so I just snagged ’em! Things I would need no matter when and if this pup isn’t going to work out, it’s not the last one.
I’m kinda sorta looking for a puppy car seat thing – but I’m not going to spend much on it. I’m only thinking about this because I want to have something for pup to be in for the ride home. Mostly I’m just prepping and planning for whenever is the right time for me to get a puppy.
I’m still looking for puppies just as a back up. Maybe that’s me not getting my hopes up, maybe it’s me thinking this one isn’t right [that sounds negative, I think he could be it for me, but I don’t want my heart set on him then it not work]. Apparently, though, these puppies are not super easy to find breeders.
It’s been 15 years since I got Turbo, so if you have any “must haves” for a puppy / dog, please let me know!
