Bird in hand
one of these MAY be coming to live with me... I am awaiting a final video of the mother to make sure her jumping looks OK (I am a freaky paranoid person about ETS), but if she does (and I think she will), one of these little monsters will be coming here. It is too early for a puppy, yes, but sometimes a good puppy just "falls into your lap" so to speak, and this one is nice enough that I feel I can't really turn it down. Plus the breeder actually WANTS me to take it! It's a boy puppy, tricolor, and his sire's family has a few really really nice agility dogs in it. The mother is mostly conformation lines up close but she also has some relatives owned and bred by famous agility handlers in the western US that are very nice dogs too. There is perhaps a bit more risk of ETS in an AOAC (Any Other Allowable Color - meaning not sable) litter, but I am reasonably sure this one will be OK.
Bird in the hand. Worth two in the bush, no?
