    DefaultFITZ ARRIVES TOMORROW!!! (we think...)

    Hi! So we spoke with the breeder yesterday. Temps here over the weekend are supposed to be around 50 and in the 30's in Wisconsin, so we're go to go on that aspect. We're all set with a plane reservation for him. He arrives at 2pm Colorado time.

    She said yesterday that of the three yellow males, we had the choice of two. She didn't say why the third wasn't an option, she just said we only had two to choose from. The first choice is the biggest of the litter and he has a hernia. He's scheduled for surgery in WI on 02/05 and would be sent after he heals for a few days. He also has a gay tail.

    The other guy has a bit less of a broad face than the hernia guy and also has a bit of a gay tail. We asked her to send us pics of the fronts and backs of both of the guys today and we'll make our decision.

    My gut is to choose the non-hernia guy. She said it wasn't a big deal but it would make me a bit nervous to start out that way. I want to see how curved the non-hernia guy's tail is. If it's not too bad, we'll definitely get him. If it's really curved, we might wait for the next litter (she doesn't know when that will be). So I'm excited but at the same time, a little cautious until we get the pics today. I can't post them from work but I'll try to when I get home tonight.

    What's a "gay tail"? I've never heard that term before.

    I hope you get him tomorrow! Can't wait for pics!!

    Yes, a gay tail is one that is curved up. No, we're not going to show him, which is why I don't mind a bit of a curve. SU minds though...we'll see.

    Ahh...what do the parent's tails look like? Some pups carry their tails "proudly" but they come down as they grow.

    Whatever the tail looks like, good luck with your new pup!!

    Great.....now I have to go home and tell my dog he has a gay tail. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    I learned something new today!

    Hernia or not, I'd want the one with the best temperament to suit my family.

    Either way, pictures are a must. ;D
