Pick Your Puppy Day

We had our first Puppy Deposit day on Saturday. The first 8 people who had registered for her litter were given the chance to come out or call with their puppy number choice and give us their down payment.

We told them that we would start taking their requests at 10am.

We had people showing up in our driveway at 9:30. We stuck to our guns though, and didn't take requests until 10.

By 10:09, it was all over. I was on phone duty in the house, so I missed out on the initial excitement in the kennel, and when I walked in, this is what I saw...

Happy people holding full-of-breakfast sleepy puppies.

Content for the first time in weeks of anticipation, and in some cases, lost sleep due to the excitement, these were people who hadn't a worry in the world, if even for just that moment.

This is what makes the hard part of this business more than worth it to us.


And we get to do it all over again this coming weekend, for we now have numbers assigned to the final two litters. Ready for another cuteness overload?
