Default Now why did she have to tell me that?

Oh pooh sticks! I sent some new photos and an update on Merlin to his breeder yesterday and she was so pleased to hear about what we get up to and then told me she is planning to mate Skyla, Merlin's sister and also a blue merle, to her tri stud Toby around her next season, and is hoping for more beautiful blue babies.

I get the feeling she thinks I might be interested Oh gosh, and if there was a tri I would be so tempted, it would be Merlin's nephew or niece, wouldn't it?

But I promised no more pups until 2014! Oh, oh, oh.... why is life so hard!!

just because she plans a breeding doesn't mean that there will be the right puppy for you- or even puppies at all.

Ahaha she is cruel!!!! I understand what you mean, I say no puppy until at least 2 years and maybe later depending if we are trying to have kids by then, but suddenly I stumble upon a rescue I love or an upcoming litter from a breeder I like and it's back to can/should we/we probably could righttttt!?!?!

It's a dangerous game but as of now I am still winning the ''not yet'' battle. I dunno what I would do if a Tricolor puppy from a good breeder was offered out to me though. That would be a toughy!

Good luck if she starts sending you pictures once the litter comes! Oh well if the puppies come in 2013 it isn't that far away from 2014.... just 12 months off your target next dog date. I'm sure lots of people on here have gotten a Sheltie years and years before their planned next dog date !
