Haha, thanks Wolfy! We're going out of town this weekend, but will visit again next weekend (6th) and spend the weekend the 11th & 12th. It's about a 3 hour drive each way. Not sure what we'll be doing the weekend of the 19th, then bring puppy home on the 25th!!
But there's no peace and quiet right now! We have a highly active 5.5 year old dog who is on minimal exercise right now due to what's most likely a torn groin muscle (how the vet described it to me in human speak). She's been getting acupuncture and is feeling better now, so she figures she should be able to tear around as usual. She's not taking the exercise restriction well - she keeps pestering us to play, lol!
