Just that, really. We are now 'on their list'. No idea how long it will take, but it feels like we're that little bit nearer to having a dog. The DC are, naturally overexcited.

I was on the list for a year or so I think, am getting a puppy on Wednesday!!

Which breed is it? Mine is a pug

HousewifeFromHeaven Mon 29-Apr-13 22:54:42

My older pug is blissfully unaware of the coming storm grin

Ha ha - poor pug.grin Post all about your new puppy! I'd love to hear more.

Toy poodle. 'About a year' would be good, although that's coming from me. Ds would like, 'about now' but I have a lot of reading to do on the topic.

Yes I will I expect everyone will be bored of hearing about him soon!

My friend has a poodle and he's very cute. Can jump much higher than I would have thought grin

At least they don't shed, pugs (especially fawn) constantly drop hair. Did you specify any colour, age etc?

GeorgianMumto5 Mon 29-Apr-13 23:29:12

No colour or sex specification and we forgot to discuss age. I'd be happy with decrepit old thing, but the DC need one who can keep up.

How high, exactly?? I hadn't realised they could do that! They won't jump a 6 ft fence, will they? Next door's labs might eat it!

GeorgianMumto5 Mon 29-Apr-13 23:33:55

Sorry - that wasn't very clear. I meant, I don't mind which colour, or which sex. I do go all melty over black or grey ones, but I can see myself transferring that to any other colour. They all make me smile.

Ah, I couldn't cope with a pug, in that case: I need a low allergen breed. Bit worried about the regular grooming they need, so am going to find out more about that too.

Ha ha I don't think they'd jump a fence!

The dog I know is bouncy, and just keeps springing up and down. Up to my shoulder, was quite a surprise. I'm short at 5'3 though smile

Have you thought about a poodle cross too? You may get one quicker that way I guess, widening your options!

GeorgianMumto5 Tue 30-Apr-13 13:45:10

Thought about poodle crosses, but the no-shed thing is paramount. I couldn't guarantee that with a cross-breed. Small size and exercise requirements are right up there, too. Toy poodles tick all my boxes, really.

Ds will love the bouncing. I must remember that things I've put 'out of the dog's way' might not be!
