    Default New Puppy Coming Home in 6 Weeks - SO Excited!

    Hi everyone,

    My fiance and I are bring home a new puppy on Sat 13th Feb... 6 weeks away. We are so excited! We got to meet the breeder and the Mum on the weekend, and they are just gorgeous (golden retrievers). I've put some photos below.

    We're allowed to visit us much as we want and we'll choose our boy at 5 weeks. If we let the breeders know his name they will start calling him by his name from then. There are 4 boys (and 3 girls) and we are second to choose our boy. We'll try to visit most weekends although we are getting married and going on a honeymoon in between now and the 8 week mark... but the breeder sends us weekly pics to keep us up-to-date on the pups' progress.

    Can barely contain my excitement!!!






    I love the little one lying on his back - haha!! Will try to update regularly with pics. We think we've chosen a name - Augustus! But we'll call him Gus. Gus the Goldie

    Any tips on how to choose your puppy, or does the puppy choose you? There will be 3 for us to choose from...

    Oh wow. How exciting. Once you have made your choice you can also ask the breeder if you can send a worn T shirt, something like that for the pup to bond with your scent.

    I chose Jodi from my own litter as it was obvious to me she had the sooky traits I was after and could settle when beside me, the others are always full on. I was looking at her, wondering if I could give her up at about 5 weeks. There was just a connection, intangible.

    Very good! There must be someone who is buying from your same litter, as I've seen that pic on that site! Maybe you should go hunt down your doggie siblings?

    Great idea Di_dee1, thanks! I've also heard it's good to leave an old t-shirt with the pup so when you bring him home he has something that smells like his litter. Wonder if that just confuses him though? Hmmm

    Disneygotpierced - definitely! What a coincidence. These are the photos the breeder e-mailed to us all. I have everyone's e-mail addresses so I should follow up. I also took some of my own photos which I can post when I get them from home.

    Ohh! yay! im so excited for you. I was going to say the one lying on his back too, he's so cute! Gus is a cool name! It's such a long time to wait hey, i only had to wait 2 weeks with Tedd and it took forever. I reckon choosing one that you have a connection with. I couldn't do that with Tedd as i got him from a breeder far away, but i saw pics and he was just chubby and cute so i picked him, but when I chose Leila, she was just the odd one out of the litter, didn't cry as much and just seemed like a sweet natured girl. She's just beautiful and im glad we got her. Congrats on getting married too, what a cool addition to your family!
