Hey! Congratulations! That is so exciting! The only names I'm coming up with on the spot are Killer and Cupcake. So don't ask me about names! /lol/
I envy your dobie! I'm still sorta leaning that way, but the spouse is hooked on non-shedding dogs. So probably another poodle for me. Which is not a bad thing, but I think it might be refreshing to go about with something a bit more no-nonsense... I'm waiting until next summer before I get serious, though.
Best and keep us posted!

> I finally found a puppy! I’ve been looking off and on since last fall. I thought I had a breeder and a puppy this spring, but there ended up being no litter. I’ve been looking when I’ve had a few spare moments this spring and summer. After many disappointments I’ve finally found a puppy!
> The breeder is only about an hour away from here. She has only one litter per year. the dogs are family raised in her home. she does health testing, doesn’t insist on cropped ears and didn’t freak out about the guide dog thing. She had a lot of good questions for me. I’m feeling really good about this breeder and the puppy.
> The litter was born on June 8, so they are very little yet. I will go in a couple of weeks to pick my puppy from the litter. then in another month I get to bring the puppy home! When I explained what sort of dog I was looking for, she felt that it was highly probable that there would be a puppy in the litter that would fit my needs. So barring any unforeseen craziness, I will have a Doberman puppy in a few weeks!
> I’m only keeping the puppy for a very short time, then he’s off to the trainers for the next long while. I will miss the little guy, but I will not miss puddles on the floor, chewed shoes, getting up at crazy hours for emergency potty breaks and the constant supervision a puppy needs. The trainer is doing all the puppy raising and a good portion of the guide training. I’m so incredibly relieved that this has finally worked out or at least the end of the beginning is incredibly close. I just don’t have the time or energy to owner train again, but I’m not 100% satisfied with any of the program options available. I’ll have my Doberman, positive training methods, high quality food, no kennel environment and the dog’s skills customized to my needs and of course I own the dog. I have no words to express how grateful I feel that things have finally come together to make this happen.
