Ever since Oberon was about 2 years old I've been trying to convince Hubby that we should get a second Sheltie. Always his answer has been no, and I got to admit his reasoning has made sense. I kept working on him -- pointing out cute puppy pictures, talking about how it would also be good for Oberon, how Oberon will be 9 this year and we don't want him to be too elderly with a new puppy AND -- -- finally yesterday Hubby said we could get a new puppy this spring!!!!! Now I get to start actually contacting breeders and getting on email lists instead of just looking at new puppy pictures. Have to find something within driving distance -- so we're in Colorado, figure anywhere in this state is good but would also consider Nebraska, Kansas, Utah, maybe others.
