Hello...again. I really need to stop having to re-introduce myself I'm sure it is getting quite annoying to you all - I know it's annoying me!
I did come with exciting news however, Ori is soon to have a friend and our family is extending! In a few weeks, we have a new Golden puppy coming home. I'm counting down the weeks, actually. Which is awfully silly of me considering she's not born for a few days yet.
She should be born within the next couple of days, and by then I should know around when she's coming home. Name has already been picked out as Jasmine and it's from the same breeder as I had Ori from. Different parents, however. I think I'm becoming the old cliche of "once you've had a Golden, you'll want/have them for the rest of your life!" I honestly couldn't imagine anything else at this point. I love them to death. They are my family, and my life.
That's the happy version, the sadder version is that I almost didn't have Jasmine, or another puppy at all. I found a different "breeder" through the same way I found Ori, and it turned out to be a scam. I found out at the VERY last minute, but thankfully all transaction was stopped and correspondence was cut before losing even more than what I did. The morning I was expecting the puppy to arrive, I found the number for Ori's breeders, which I had lost two years ago. Immediately when I found out about the scam, I had everything cancelled and called them - to find out they had an available litter due within two-three weeks.
I am excited and relieved more than I'm able to explain, but I do urge others out there to be CAREFUL of puppy scams. It seems they really sound legimate and it's a cruel way to pull at heart strings. The money I didn't care about, it was the fact of the heartless person who leads people astray to even someone like me who is not normally a trusting person. They are apparently using newspaper classified advertisements now as well and the authorities sadly can't do much about them but warn people.
That being said though. I believe the last time I was here, I didn't have many photos of my baby boy to share. Now I do!
These were a few photos taken last week:

This one isn't from the last week or two, but it's definitely my favorite.
