Oregon Dad and I have been seriously considering getting a St. Bernard pup for quite a while now. Our beloved Dakota is on her last legs and part of Oregon Dad’s coping with her loss will be getting a pup to keep him busy. Personally, I could go without, he cannot. So we will get another dog. My rule was that if we are getting another pup… it is going to be the one breed I have always wanted. A Saint. Lucky for me, Oregon Dad loves Saints as well and is in agreement.
We finally went to meet a breeder this weekend. It was a very exciting visit that left us both eager for our little pup. Heck, I have even considered showing the pooch. We will have more meetings with the breeder, introduce the kids and leave it up to them to match us with the right Saint.
I just wish we could get one that doesn’t slobber… yeah right! While we were visiting with the breeders pet, Oregon Dad got a big, slimy, snotty slobber all over the front of his Oregon Ducks sweatshirt. Lucky me, I only got a little bit of non-snot like slobber! The pooch must have really liked me!
Even the slobber didn’t dissuade us in the knowledge that a Saint is going to be the next member of our family.
Wish me luck!
