“For the love of all things good, get these friggin puppies out of my belly…”

Our breeder just let us know that Willow’s temperature is dropping. Apparently, when this happens they normally give birth within 24 hours. I don’t know if I have ever been more excited, nervous, ecstatic and terrified all at the same time. I feel like a first time mom, all over again. “What if the puppy doesn’t like me? What if I’m a terrible dog owner? What if I trip over it and it dies? What if in my desire to make the kitchen a ‘no-go’ zone, that I somehow make my dog think no one loves it? What if …”  Then, I come to my senses and laugh at myself and I think– I raised two extremely bright and well rounded children. Surely, I’ll be fine raising a puppy.  And, I won’t be doing it alone. Jay raised two of the best behaved dogs I’ve ever come across in my entire life. He’ll be there to guide me and show me the way.

I can’t wait to meet the newest addition to my family. I’m going INSANE waiting.

Please let it be today.
