Our wedding is in t-minus 39 days! I'm so excited. The other reason I'm excited is because that means....its almost time for a puppy! We have for sure made our decision to go with a Sheltie. He was hoping for a puppy around Christmas time, but I don't know if a good breeder would do that (so they avoid the whole puppy as a gift thing, and holidays are a little busy). Am I thinking about that right? For us, holidays are not that crazy - I would mostly be concerned about the tree and wires. So, how long in advance did you contact the breeder of your puppy? What is a reasonable timeframe that we should expect to be on a waitlist?
