Smile I might be getting..........

............a new puppy. I've been searching on the net for a Border Collie breeder with puppies. I found one 5+ hours away from where I live. After emailing her, she said she may have a bitch for me.
She was going to Crufts & Europe & said she'd be in touch when she came home. To my surprise, I met her today at the Royal Easter Show while watching the Border Collies being shown.
So, in the next few days I should find out which puppy she has for me, she will be keeping one of them for herself. All being well I'll be able to pick her up early April, when she will be 9 1/2 weeks old.

cool. I am getting a pup in the summer. an Elkhound. I have waited 6 years as I use to have a collie cross and I didn't want 3 dogs as I have a chihuahua two. but last year my collie cross, passed away at the age of 16. so I have been saving for my new pup. I will be meeting the breeder on the 5th of April. cant wait. good luck and take lots of photos

Good luck to you too. I made a slight miscalculation on the pup's age, she will be 11.5 weeks old when I get her, she was 9.5 weeks this week when I saw the breeder. So fingers crossed I hear from her soon with news of which pup I'm to get.

hi, i wish you well with your new puppy, when you get her. have you picked a name for her or does she already have a name? will you be showing her at all? can i ask, is the breeder in the country at all? i'm just trying to caculate which area in sydney you are in, as you say the breeder is 5 hours away., the reason i'm curious, i was born in sydney, i lived there for 20 years, before moving to qld, after my dad had his cancer removed. now i am in melbourne. sorry for rambling.

Hi, no you weren't rambling.
I will be changing her name, the breeder calls her Stella & can't think of the right name for her yet, maybe when I meet her. The breeder lives west of Bermagui. We're going to have a few days to look around the area 1st. We leave Mon. week & should have her home by the 11th April. I can't wait. It's going to be so different at home, April was so feeble & Sooty is 7.5yrs. So it's that long since I've trained a puppy.

i'm sure you'll think of the right name for your new pup. i know as soon as i saw our then pup, her name was going to be jade., the same with all my other dogs, as soon as i saw them, the name came to me. so i wish you well.

We leave in the morning & after a night at my son's we head south. Should meet "Stella" on Tuesday & bring her home on Friday. She was 11 weeks old on Saturday. I got this pic of her from the breeder's website. She is 5 weeks old in the pic, so will have changed by the time we see her. I can't wait.

Her front legs are marked the same way April's were. I still can't decide on a name. I was thinking maybe Skye, Bonnie or Velvet. Any other ideas would be much appreciated.

Oh my what a picture- that little snout! She is adorable!
All those names sounds great! I'm so happy you found such a little sweetie like that!
