Very excited. Sent off some e-mails just for clarification to a few Newfoundland breeders. Like to know where I'm at regarding puppies prior to commencing telephone conversations that end up costing a fortune!
Have received all answers back, and lo and behold, there is actually a litter here in my state. Woohoo.
All puppies were 'spoken for' but one family they are not sure of, so I could have a chance here. Even better news, the breeder is actually coming to the my city for the local show soon, and is bringing some of her dogs with her, so I can meet them.
Oh my, I'm doing a happy dance. Yep, I know, I should grow up and act my age...Lol.
Fingers crossed everybody. Sounds terribly mean, but I'm sitting here hoping the other family bails out.
