Having waited patiently for my puppy after searching and a couple of failed matings, finally I had the call I was hoping for from my breeder. My puppy was born on Friday...yay! The only problem being I had wanted a girl but the mum had 3 boys and 1 girl and the breeder might want to keep the girl. She said she would decide in 8 weeks. So I have first refusal on the girl but I can have my choice of the boys. There's a possibility she might keep a boy, I guess depending on looks. It's kind of thrown me. I had a girls name picked out and everything. I know by eight weeks I would have become attached to the boy as I am allowed to see him every week from 10 days old. I've even chosen the name Dylan! I don't know how I would feel if I was offered the girl at that point. I would appreciate your opinions on any differences, advantages/disadvantages in nature or habbits between girls and boys. Thank you x
