    DefaultPuppies! I'm so tempted (and they're not labs)

    As some of you might remember, my neighbors lab had pups outside on the coldest day so far this year and I helped him warm them over a woodstove and get them settled with their mom in the barn. They are 3 weeks old now and I check on them every week. I went to see them today - they are SOOOOOOOO cute! They are 1/2 lab, 1/2 St. Bernard. There are 9 of them (they all lived) and either very dark brown/black, or dark brindled with black ears. Tell me they aren't going to be nice looking dogs. Maybe with a little thicker coat than a lab , good sized.......... I am so tempted to give one a home - my main drawbacks are SU - who might kill me, and the fact that I would want to show them in obedience and maybe agility and most shows are AKC for purebreds only. But they sure are sweet! Help me!

    Hhmmmmm. Don't know as I would be much help. Sounds like they could be pretty nice dogs. The questions are do you have the room and time for a dog like that. Oh.....and can you afford it. LOL They do sound really really cute. All puppies are cute, but they grow up.
    Now Labs just stay cute all their lives. ;D ;D ;D

    oh, it must be hard to make that decision. You see them grow up, you have nurtured them and checked in on them...I don't blame you for thinking you would like to adopt one. Especially seeing the personalities emerge in the next few weeks.
    You will make a good decision whether it is to adopt one or not...

    Does your neighbor have any ideas how he will place 9 pups?

    He has a few homes lined up (at least the people say they will take one - mostly some of the Amish around here) He will keep them until he finds homes for them - he has a few rescues at his house too because he can't stand to see people drop dogs off at the side of the road and leave them. So I think that he will at least care for the pups until he somehow finds homes for them. I'm pretty sure I won't be getting one - but I needed to talk about it some, because SU doesn't want to hear about it. I think I really am getting PUPPY FEVER!!!!

    Well you could show in Agility in USDAA or NADAC, but honestly most dogs that big aren't good performers.

    I'd really consider what you want to do with your next dog. If you really want to compete, this probably is not the dog you want to get. If you just want a good pet around the house, go for it

    I will probably take some pics once they're up and running around, but right now I have to crawl under a workbench and peak around the corner to see them. I would love to spend more time with them, but don't really want to be over at the neighbors that much. They're kind of crazy :-\

    Oh heck! I think I'll just start seeing them more if my neighbor doesn't seem to mind. Maybe that was I'll get over my puppy fever a little.

    Just think that you will be giving one a good home. A really great home.
