    In fact when we got Kayla our breeder , who owned the male, Gave us pick of the litter. As it was his due and he wanted to sell it anyway. So we got to choose. I thought that was nice.
    She turned out beautiful and has the most wonderful nature. the breeder did help us choose.

    Karlin:

    In your very knowledgeable background, can you please answer a
    question for me.

    Would it be at all risky to keep a male from the litter of your children in the same house.
    Just thinking that that may cause a accident, although I am positive that
    good breeders seperate them when the time comes.

    What a day yesterday, and now I still don't know, I know when we go
    to see them I will melt anyway.
    We wouldn't think twice about keeping a male with offspring in the house, but then we are used to dealing with keeping the boys and girls separated. In fact, even when we are breeding a pair in our house, we keep them separated, except when the actual "deed" is being done. Breeding is a very structured thing.

    Bruce:

    If you were just starting out would you feel the same way, and also
    if you are just starting out and actually don't own your own female,
    would you keep the only female regardless of the things breeders look for.
    Sorry I am just trying to weigh out my chances of getting that little
    Ruby Boy.
    Like I said, Lady is owned by my breeder but resides with someone else
    who was looking to start showing and breeding. So with only one female being born what would you do. ????

    Bruce I truly appreciate your opinion on this, I do not want to bother my
    breeder for a while as I am sure she is very tired after the trauma
    yesterday even although all is well now.

    Yes, I agree with Bruce. Breedings aren't only carefully planned, they are carefully orchestrated. There is a lot more too it than leaving a dog and a bitch together. Sandy

    Linda, if she is looking to breed/show she will base her decision on the best prospect in the litter. The choice will likely come down to how each stacks up as a show potential. I doubt she will go by colour or sex alone unless she has a particular sex in mind and even then the one with the most potential will probably top her list regardless of sex, if she is just starting out.

    Well I was lucky and my breeder emailed me this picture of the puppies
    tonight. I just wanted to share.
    Hopefully that little Ruby boy to the right will come home with me, if not
    I will be most likely taking one of the Black and Tans.

    thanks for the great photo. She doesn't look too bad for having a C section (ouch). she does look kind of wiped out though. The puppies already have nice looking coats. I hope you get your ruby boy. If not, you'll no doubt have a black and tan you adore, and you and your husband will both be saying it was meant to be.

    Oh Linda, they all look beautiful. Such little chubby bubbies and so shiny. I think that the breeder has put "your" little boy aside so you can see him better Thanks for sharing and how nice of your breeder to send them too.

    Linda, that is a beautiful looking litter. Regardless of what happens, I'd say you are going to get a beautiful puppy.

    When Kris and I were starting out, our third dog was a male. We were nervous about it, but we had a great mentor and she really helped us through dealing with the first few seasons and our boys "antics". Based on everything you have said on this and the other board, and if I were a betting man, I would put my money on you getting the ruby. BUT, who knows what the other person has in mind.

    Just try to relax a bit and try not to try to guess what another person might do (easy to say, I know!); we don't want to hear about you giving yourself a nervous breakdown Just know that whatever happens, you are going to get a very beautiful puppy.
