A Doggy Update
So, where are we on the doggy front? Mr. MPB and I made a few agreements, which have resulted in a basic Plan A, B and C.
Plan A – Old English Sheepdog (OES). We will find out in approximately 3 weeks if the mommy dog is pregnant. If she’s pregnant, and there is a girl puppy available, we will adopt said girl puppy once she is old enough to come home with us. The estimated arrival of puppies is Christmas 2017. Ready to come a few months later. (I’m once again waiting to find out about a pregnancy, the only difference is this time it’s a dog. Honestly, I hate every email I get from the breeder about the status of the hopefully expecting mommy OES – it’s a lot of the same language as human fertility/reproduction and I seriously have flashbacks to our two week waits, the cycles that didn’t work, and pregnancy updates. Another reminder that the pain of everything we’ve been through never really goes away).
Plan B – No OES because mommy dog is not pregnant or no girls are born. OES’s are very hard to find in my part of the world for some reason, so we wont wait another year for one. So, we will then wait for a Sheepadoodle from the breeder I met a few months ago. That could happen anytime in the spring/summer/fall of 2018.
Plan C – No OES and no Sheepadoodle because
we I are done waiting. We will find another super kid friendly breed that is more readily available, probably some sort of goldendoodle or labradoodle.
And so there you have it. We are getting another dog, on Mr. MPB’s timeline. Mr. MPB has fully agreed that the earliest we will get a dog is the OES in February/March. If that doesn’t work out, then we’ll move on to Plan B and eventually Plan C.
Regardless of Plan A, B or C, we have also decided that Little MPB will get to name his new friend. I truly think our future little girl dog will be named Marshall, and it will drive me crazy for the rest of time.
And so, in just a few short months, we will once again get to experience the special connection and love shared with a dog. And, Little MPB will have a fur sibling once again, which warms my heart just thinking about it. I’m so excited!
