The wait is finally over!!

We've been waiting to add another Doberman to our family since last summer. Litter/Breeder #1 didn't have a puppy for me. Neither did Litter/Breeder #2. Cue breeder #3.

For her current litter, I was 8th in line and there are 8 puppies, though she may be keeping one back as a show prospect. I was prepared to wait until her next litter if I needed to, when she contacted me to let me know she's decided to place a pup she had held back from her previous litter. Woo hoo!! She's 4.5 months old.

After some hasty schedule rearranging (I'm a nurse, so I can't just randomly take vacation days), we're driving from Illinois down to Georgia next week to pick her up.

I can barely contain my excitement that it's finally happening!!!

Well... Congratulations!

I always feel that patience is of primary importance when searching for your Doberman. Sometimes, we get a wonderful surprise. It happened to us with our youngest boy. We were expecting to wait until the spring or summer of 2015 for our pup. Imagine our joy at hearing our breeder had a pup for us the day before Thanksgiving 2014. The only catch was I had to be 300 miles South at the breeder's the following day. LOL.

Enjoy your baby and update when you get home!

I just wanted to mention, too, why I was "breeder hopping". The first 2 breeders only breed every 2-3 years, and I'm a bit too impatient to wait quite that long.

Pictures... there will be PLENTY of those.

ALL my coworkers are aware of the great puppy hunt of 2020. They're just as excited as I am! Unfortunately, working in a hospital, I have to find coverage for scheduled shifts that I'm trying to take off.
