    Default I collect my puppy today :)

    I have a cute coming home in 8 days. She is 9 weeks at the moment, and quite unwell, so can't come home until 10 weeks.







    A small, young cute, that looks like this.










    I know some of you will think its too soon, and some will think I should be rehoming an adult dog. This however, just feels right. I have never had a puppy before, and the thought is so scary, you will all have to keep me straight (and sane)!

    Sorry the photos aren't great, she doesn't sit still, and from the word of her Mummy's mouth she's A fiesty wee thing, she certainly is no shrinking violet!

    she is beautiful

    if you feel the time is right then it is not too soon.
    i got jazz 8 days after we lost tyke and felt hurt when a friend commented 'that was quick'. i was not looking, she was just in the right place at the right time.
    you are not trying to replace your lost dog and it does not mean it will ever be forgotten but if this feels right go for it, i am really pleased for you and your puppy (though they hit you like a ton of bricks as i always forget what hard but rewarding work they are!) it will also hopefully help you heal a little.

    lots of love and luck... but we need more pics and a name!

    *squishes tight*

    If anyone judges you, that is THEIR issue, not yours, just brush it off and trust yourself that this is the right thing for you.

    I can't wait to see more piccies I hope she gets better soon.

    Thanks everyone, I was so nervous that the rescue would say no. She's a poor poor wee thing. I don't know her whole story yet, just bits, but she was a stray, with mange, and she's only 9 weeks! She's waiting on her last treatment and injection next week, then she can come home. I don't know if you can tell from the photos her skin looks quite red.

    Her parentage is dubious, but there is a litter of pups almost identical to her at another rescue near the KWK9 Rescue (where she is coming from). It's suspected she is part of that litter, and either the people they were taken off hid her to try and keep her, or kept her then dumped her. The other rescue was told the parents were a Whippet type (Mum) and a Greyhound type (Dad).

    From her colouring, I see Saluki in there somewhere. And there is a Saluki 'farmer' in that area, he always has studs and pups advertised, so there could well be. My Dad is convinced she's got Staffie in her, and while I have nothing against Staffies, I don't think she's got staff in her.

    Hoping to speak to her foster Mummy later

    It's all very surreal, I have to go buy puppy collar, lead, teething/chewing bones etc!
