The breeder just wrote on her blog that the puppies should be arriving in a week or so, mom's temperature is down. She's done this so often I'm sure she can predict the timing pretty accurately! Yes, I'm nervous! And excited! The pup will be ready mid May- I wish the timing was different; closer to June 21st to be honest! That's my last day of work, then I have ten weeks off. I like this breeder though and connect with her, and since when do puppies come exactly when you want them to anyways? I'm almost done with Ian Dunbar 's book, I do find it valuable although rigid in some areas, it kinda makes me feel like if I don't meet a deadline the puppy will be ruined! I'm just a bit anxious, I can't take the time off that I want to, because I'm too conscientious concerning work. I can live with calling in sick three days attached to a weekend, but no more. My husband will take one day. My Principal cannot ask me why I was sick either- that's violating my contract. I retire in two years, so why should I care that much? Because I work with kids, that's the only reason!! And they are driving me nuts! A HARD 7th grade year- yes, 7th grade.
