Scuba and I fly to Detroit to meet her. I feel like a mail-order bride. Will I be pleased with them? Will I be disappointed? If I don’t like the puppies, I’ll come home with nothing, in spite of all the research I did. That’ll be VERY hard.
OK. I REALLY LIKE the puppies. They’re solid, shiny, brave, obnoxious. Breed type (width of head, tail carriage, muzzle length) isn’t important to me as the purchaser of a SD potential, but as a former judge, I’m very happy with their typiness. What IS necessary is what we’ll examine tomorrow – build, running gear, attitude. But at least now I know I’ll have a puppy tomorrow!
