I sent him an email asking a bunch of questions so we'll see how he responds. My husband is sure his parents would deliver. I just need to know age, any training, did he come from a pet store or breeder---background, how much $$, why are they giving him up...any suggestions on what else to ask?
Then, I need to start worrying about how he and Chester will hit it off.
We're one step closer. The owner emailed me back and it sounds like a good situation for us. He's 6 months old and the owner's family situation changed so that no one is home most of the day and he doesn't feel right about keeping a dog crated that long. My sister in law, who lives near this guy, said she could pick up the LD and if my in laws don't want to transport him she would meet us somewhere between Colorado and Illinois.
Am I nuts or what? We joked that she would fall in love with the little guy and want to keep him.
Well...I guess we're just meant to be a one Doodle family. I heard from the guy in CO. He had people going to his home last night and 2 more lined up today. I asked that he keep us in mind if the others don't work out.
Another Doodle for a family to love...they are lucky and so are we because we have Chester.
I told my husband I'm probably obsessed now with getting another Doodle and feeling competitive because I can't seem to get one so maybe I should step back for a bit and be sure that's what we really want.
Sounds crazy doesn't it...of course I'm probably just trying to placate myself. And I'll get a LD fix this weekend at the next Chicago area Romp!
Yes your puppies sure to tempt me! I love browsing the websites and looking at all the LDs. They make me smile!
We'll probably be in CO next Spring. That would be fun to get together. We love the dog park near Parker.
My sister in law lives in Parker and she took us there. It was beautiful and had us sold on finding a dog park near us...which we did. It doesn't have the mountains and the stream is, well...a mud bog but its a big area and Chester can run around.
