Ok ...... Remind me!

Post by Bid » 23 Oct 2010, 10:42

My new puppy was born this week! I'm so excited!

But ...... I've just read the Good morning thread, and those early mornings are coming back to haunt me! So - all you people with your new puppies - remind me of all the joys I have to come, that I had forgotten now my girls are grown ups! :lol: :lol:

Ah, Bid, I think you mean the hanging off your dressing gown and the tripping you up in the excitement of seeing how far up you they can jump, can they reach to nibble your hands yet?

Or do you mean the crazy doodle dashing when you have just made a very hot of cup of tea to try and wake yourself up at stupid o'clock and they come and land on your lap, thinking they are a Yorkshire Terrier and then you have very hot dripping tea all over you but not all over them as they have already moved on to cause destruction somewhere else?

Or do you mean that by the time you have adjusted to the fact that it is morning when the rest of the world is sleeping, you are picking up poo and serving up the delights of raw meat?

Or that by the time breakfast is finished, poo shovelling is done, remains of cup of tea is drunk and your are about to get dressed, the little darling is curled up, fast allseep snoozing and looking like butter wouldn't melt...

Have to say, Truffle wasn't too bad in the very young puppy days but, woah, five and a bit months is a testing time, teenage years have arrived early for us I'm afraid!

Anyway, good luck with it all, what colour is your puppy? 3 doodles, how fantastic, I am very jealous as I would love another one, just need it to be the right time for us and Truffle)

OMG when did I miss hearing you were getting a new puppy :shock: (mind you after reading the 'demented doodle owner' post maybe you won't be suprised).
Congratulations, I hope we are going to get all the daily details of the fun and games :)
I'm sure I recognise the puppies mummy - the black head is definately memorable. :)
They look so yummy I would be jumping up and down in excitement too. Do you know which one is going to be yours :?:

Awww...spotty Doodles!!! Didn't realise they came in those colours (I have a lot to learn!) How gorgeous!
Good luck when your latest arrives home :)
If I have learnt anything in the last two weeks, it would be
1. Don't buy a towelling bath robe - gives Boo far too much leverage during her early morning bounce :lol: , and
2. Next time around, I'd have my new pup arrive in, say, May... How much more pleasant (?!?!) the 6am poop run must be at that time of year :shock: :wink: , and
3. Never forget to put on slippers before opening the cage. Don't think I'll ever be partial to standing in warm puddles, or to having my toe nails nibbled.

Still, as your an old hand at all his, I'm sure it'll all come flooding back at an alarming rate :D

Lol - no-one has missed out on any secrets! I didn't want to count my chickens before they hatched - there might not have been a girl for me! I don't know which little pup will be coming here - it will be a girl and a choccy merle one, - we don't want any comparisons being made with other chocolate girlies do we!

Linny I had thought about a boy, but the behaviourist I spoke to who has met Daze & Pops suggested that I would need a very very strong minded boy to live happily with Daisy, and tbh that sounded like trouble to me!

Him indoors is resigned, and will love her whoever she is, once she wriggles her little way onto his lap and snuffles in his beard! :lol:

Oh wow Bid! How did you manage to keep that a secret? I'd have been bursting to tell. I've just checked Debbie's website (there was no mistaking the breeder there! :lol: ), aren't mum and dad just the most gorgeous dogs ever? Also nice to see photos of how the first generation of Marbles have turned out. Can't wait to see more photos and how your little one grows. Have you thought of a name?

Keep the photos coming!

PS - edited because in my excitement the spelling was terrible! :lol:
