When to pick up in this situation?
I've been reading some of the old threads about the best time to bring home a new puppy, and most sources seem to think 7 or 8 weeks old is best. The issue I have is that the puppy is from a very small liter. They will be 7 weeks on April 1 (a Monday), but one of her siblings will go home at 6 weeks and the other will leave the last weekend in March. I was just wondering if there would be any reason to leave her with the breeder after all her siblings are gone? My husband has an adult lab, so she would still be around another dog. Does that make a difference? I definitely want to do what's best for her, but it's also more convenient to pick her up on the weekend instead of on Monday or later that week.
