I'm back...sort of. Some of me is back but most of me feels like i've been cut into little pieces and thrown to the wind. This has been a tough 3 weeks. I've been trying to distract myself by looking for breeders. We visited one on Monday.
In the past, we never met the parents of our chows which was a big mistake. This time I am absolutely meeting the parents of any puppy I am considering. With possible grandchildren in the future, I have to have a dog that is very friendly.
These two week old pups are going to other people but we got to hold them and meet about 15 other chows. Chows are born with black muzzles which fade in the first year or so.
This breeder is willing to work with us to breed the kind of chow we want. I'm just having trouble realizing that this process is like going to visit the source of the chicken you buy in the grocery store.
I have a lot of homework to do and a lot of breeders to visit.
If we are lucky, we might have a pup or puppies sometime in the spring! I guess that this should make me happy but right now I just want Teddy.
