The last of the dozen or so kennels I left messages with last Monday finally called me back, so now it's official.
Not only did we get the cutest cockapoo in the three westernmost provinces, we got the best deal there was to be had.
(Did I mention she's smart*? She's already not barking her head off in her kennel tonight. She barked and whined and puppy-cursed us for two hours last night, and tonight she tried it on for 5.3 minutes and then just went to sleep.)
*"it's so young who can tell". And if she's so smart, she should say something.**
**if you're not a sibling of my husband's, or married to one, you likely won't understand that. And if you do, I want to know why!
