So we will not be getting her. The breeder had described her to us as "sweet and gentle," and I (and Reserve Cat) were really looking forward to a non-Type A personality joining the household. That's the bad news.
The worse news is that another potential owner rejected this puppy for being "too lively." In the breeder's words, she is not only two pounds bigger that the first pup but she is "the most out going and determined, maybe even a tad excitedable (sic)..."
Sweet land of Goshen, I am going to have another fuzzy little roughneck on my hands. She looks like an Irish prize-fighter.
