Today, we picked up our new puppy.
Once that happened, and every day since, my children have been asking me when we were going to get another dog. We took some time to decide if it really was something we wanted to do. Scooby seemed to really miss Shaggy when he left - he was enjoying having the playmate. So Mat and I talked about it, and decided that we would give it another try.
So - today was the day. Finley (who played hooky from school to spend a little quality time with Gramma), Sally and I took a drive to see the puppies. The little girl was the best one. She followed us everywhere, and stuck close to us. She was playful, but not crazy. She was quiet. But a little strange is how straight her hair is. She is another goldendoodle, but she was the only one in the litter that was born with straight hair. Not a single curl. But, Finley hasn't had a single reaction, so we are convinced she is going to be fine.
So - it looks like we got a goldendoodle that looks like a golden retriever. She is really pretty and really, really, small. She is about 7 pounds. She goes to the vet tomorrow for the weigh in. She is almost 9 weeks old.
Right now she is under my legs fast asleep. she has only had one accident in the house all day. We are hoping she has a good first night.
