kingfisher7151 Posted February 9, 2014 Report Share Posted February 9, 2014 You know, sometimes you just have to go for things in life. After many, many, many months (years even) of drooling over your dogs I finally just did something about it. I contacted a breeder to get my name on a reservation list. I have known about a (relatively) local breeder who runs a small operation with her working border collies. She has only 1 litter a year, and the upcoming litter is due March 14th and will come home 8 weeks later. Her dogs are all ABCA registered and have hips, eyes, etc. all tested. I have admired her dogs workability, but also their wonderful temperament. They are family members as much as they are working partners. I am so unbelievably excited! I've spent so many months of mulling over this decision waiting for it to feel like it was the right time. I have had one of those months where everything that can go wrong, does. (Heck, I just found out I have a half-sister!) But I am becoming grateful for all these misfortunes, as I have decided to seek out the things that make me happy. Life is way too short to spend all my time worrying and waiting. So alas, I finally am making a decision! Of course now comes the dreaded wait! And then the more fun questions! Do I want a male or a female? (I'm open to suggestions!) What names would I like to consider? What color do I think he/she will be? I will be counting down the days before I can see pictures and pick up my new buddy! Wish me luck as I begin my journey into border collie ownership!
