Hi everyone. I swear I was not this anxious waiting for the birth of my human children. The litter that I should be getting a puppy from (first choice of females) is due "around the end of the month". I got put on the list about two weeks or so after she was bred so I have been counting down the days and "nesting", getting the crate, playpen, collars in various sizes, other things I won't need for months, lol. I know that any of you who are breeders are probably shaking your heads and laughing but not being where the momma is, not visiting her (like I frequently visited the mares who had the foals I purchased in utero) is DRIVING ME NUTS. "what if something goes wrong?" "What if there are no females or no suitable females?", I'm specifically getting a puppy to be trained for mobility service work. You may be figuring out that this is the first time I have purchased a puppy before it was born. Horses, you have 11 months and you get to hug that huge belly and feel the foal moving around, kind of like feeling your own baby kick when you are pregnant. This is so different. I feel so removed from the process and I hate it. Any words (I'm open to mantra's at this point) to help me chill until I hear from the breeder?
