Now, It's time to start figuring out which puppy will be best for me. I'm sure I won't know who I'm taking for sure until I actually get on the plane with him, but here's what I DO know:
Green Boy is very pretty. He's active, but not the most active in the litter. This could be a good thing. He is also looking like he's going to be a little more on the hairy side. Considering his Dad is a total hairy monster, this could is something to keep on eye on. Lots of hair can hold in heat and make him more likely to overheat when running in harness.
Orange Boy is Mr. Cool of the litter. I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE mellow dogs. I think he would be extremely easy to live with. He's so mellow I have to consider the possibility that he's too mellow to really be a good show dog for a first timer. There is a definite element of showing that involves showmanship and "spunk" and it can be hard for a newbie like me to get it out of a dog who doesn't naturally just have it. Also, how motivated will he be to run in harness, especially being the only member of the team for a while? Orange boy will likely have a little less coat than green, which is a plus.
Pink girl is way cute. She'll probably have a little shorter coat than some of the others.
But, well, she's a girl and a boy is a better option for me right now.
Purple girl is pretty bold. She's probably going to be a spunky girl. However, it's looking like she's likely to be pretty darn hairy for a girl. Hope whoever takes her doesn't get bossed around by her too much.
Red boy is pretty. He's got some biscuit markings like his Daddy. He's definitely got some spunk and made sure his voice was heard on picture day (a couple of his pictures were snapped while he was barking in protest). I think his head will be pretty and his coat will fall somewhere in the middle. The breeder says he's just like a mini Rico (his daddy). I'm interested to see how Mr. Red shapes up structure-wise.
Ah, Mr. Yellow. I just don't even know what to think about him. I don't think he's the "prettiest" of the litter, but clearly he does. He's bold and spunky and extremely smart. The breeder's fiancée has already posted on Facebook "
