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.
