My Future Puppy

The debate on when to get puppy #3 is still underway. Right now it looks like June is basically out of the picture. I will still be way too busy. I am looking at possibly getting a transfer puppy in June, or having someone help me with Betsy and puppy #3. I think I am just going to wait until Betsy goes back to get a new puppy. It will make my summer much easier. I will just have to convince my counselor to plan my class schedule around caring for a puppy. My brother will be living at home for college, so he can help too. My mom only works half time, making her available for puppy watching. And if need be, there are plenty of puppy sitters than live within 20 minutes of my house.

But of course, plans are always changing. If my leader says they need PRs for June, I'll still gladly take a new puppy. So I guess the point of this post was to say...I still don't know when I'll get a new puppy. It will probably be a last minute decision.

Any advice on overlapping puppies would be great!

And with that..this is what I want my future pup to look like :)
a black and a yellow lab puppies looking down at a bone. They are both chubby and adorable!
Cute huh?

Overlapping dogs is pretty tough, especially if the first one is dog distracted or likes to wrestle. We have four dogs in our house right now(2 are PIT) and my best advice, if you're going to overlap is be sure to have a way to seperate puppies in your house(x-pens, baby gates, etc.).Divide and conquer!

Wouldn't you like to know when the trucks are coming in June? Barb said 2x in June at one time, but June starts next week! I guess we'll see! New puppies are always fun, but boy are they a lot of work! Sounds like Betsy is a pretty good puppy (with a lot less energy than Eve!)
