The one in the bed is our new little girl! I already paid for her, and the lady is going to hold her for a week until Christmas, or after the puppies all get their 7 week shots. She said they're not supposed to go until 8 weeks, but she said she'll see how puppy is doing two-three days after her shot. She is a shih tzu/poodle X, but you can't even tell they have poodle in them! Mom is poodle, dad is pure bred shih tzu! I saw all 15 puppies! There were SO much to choose from but she kept coming near me, biting me, climbing up on me and followed me EVERYWHERE. She is the smallest in her litter, but she's extremely playful. If I change my mind for one of the bigger girls, the lady said I can do that too. Since there are 15 puppies (5 purebred puppies, 5 halfbreeds, 3 purebred poodles and 2 poodles with shih tzu in them) she said I'm sure I'll have enough time to change my pick. It's NOT a puppy mill/farm. She has the puppies separated and they have regular grooming so they're used to it when they all go to their homes.
I don't know if I should take the puppy home on the 14th, or if I should let her stay an extra week before Christmas (go home Dec 21st). I can't decide!!! How would you present her without just flatout showing her to my son??? Puppy will mostly be taken care of by me obviously. My son is only 5. The puppy is for him as a playmate when I am doing my assignments and studying, and as a watchdog for those pesky neighborhood kids.
Also, what should I get for her besides a kennel and food??? Is there a certain food you feed your dogs?
