The traditional second anniversary gift is Cotton.
Please meet Cotton.
After that last litter died, I didn't really mention this litter much. I was so afraid that something would happen and they would died too. I didn't really let myself get excited, since I was afraid I would be disappointed again.
Our puppy visit was Saturday. 2 hours full of puppies. It was so much fun. I'm super excited again. :)
There were three boys in this litter and we had the last pick (meaning we would get whichever puppy the two people in front of us didn't choose). So when we got pictures of the puppies a few weeks ago, Phil and I tried not to get attached to any particular puppy. But Phil didn't really follow those instructions. He wanted the almost all white puppy (which would end up being Cotton).
When we got to the puppy visit yesterday, the people with the first pick had already chosen the puppy they wanted. Both our breeder and the breeder of this litter wanted us to have the almost all white puppy. They had told us they were going to try to convince the girl with the second pick to take the other puppy, so we could have Cotton.
Turns out, the girl didn't need any convincing. She and the woman with the first pick wanted the puppies with the most orange color (not Cotton). They didn't wanted Cotton, which worked out great for us. We wanted him. Taylor was the leftover from a litter as well and she is the best dog. I'm sure Cotton will be the same way.
2 weeks until we get to bring him home! I am counting the days (more like counting the hours).
