Spoke to soon

Alas, the puppy we so wanted, that I fell in love with at first sight, that my daughter's dreamed of holding and sleeping by and dressing up and loving, is not to be ours. A puppy we all fell in love with over a picture on the screen. Never meeting her, yet still, she occupied a space in our hearts.

It's a long and complicated story, one that I'm not quite sure I understand. There seemed to be an issue between the rescue organization and the foster mom, a disagreement on what age she should be spayed. And thus, the rescue organization dropped her from their available puppy list.

And so we wait. There will be a puppy out there for us. We're still approved. We've already been offered a 3 1/2 month old male puppy and a 7 month old female puppy, but just not quite what we're looking for.

So what are we looking for? A female, mutt (although we are selective in what breeds) mostly large dog. We know when we see her, that she'll be the puppy for us. She's out there somewhere, and we are willing to wait for her.

Oh so sorry. But you're right, your pup will be waiting for you when she's ready.

I'm sorry as well. But, yes, your perfect dog is out there. The disappointment is tough though.

That's too bad. It'll happen soon.

I'm sorry she didn't work out! We looked at 3 pups before Maggie...and wow, was she worth the wait!!
You'll find the one!

Awww, so sorry to hear things didn't work out. If you're interested, I volunteer with ALR ( and can help you adopt any of the babies you see on that website. Or even get more information on them for you. I know you've got your mind made up, but might I suggest a hound mix. :) They make thee best dogs.
