So since finding out on Friday that I would be bringing a cute Lab into my life in March, my weekend has just been a whirlwind of crazy. I packed up and moved to a bigger home in the country with a better yard to suit my new girl who will be coming to Washington. During that time, the president of my puppy raising chapter and new friend called with some more exciting details, only making me more anxious for her arrival date!
Here’s the lowdown. Her name is Helaine. She is a pure bred yellow Lab. Her daddy is Wasatch and her Momma is Calina, and since she’s a female AND a Lab, she will be watched for breeding. I haven’t been in touch with her breeder caretaker yet, but I hope to soon. I am so excited to meet her!
Now let me explain something. I know the majority of my blog posts have referenced “my boy”, and I truly thought that I would be getting a male as that is my one specific request. I will admit, for a moment I was disappointed to be getting a female, especially since I so don’t like when they go into season. But my disappointment quickly (and I mean QUICKLY) changed to excitement. I am so blessed and honored to be a part of such an awesome organization, and I should be slow to judge what kind of experience I will have based on “not getting what I want.” I love puppy raising, and I will GLADLY raise any dog, breed, color, or gender with pride, patience and love.
So the countdown is on, 30 days and counting till MY GIRL arrives.
