Well just don't feed it!
Keep it in a small aquarium and it won't grow very big!

I started the year with five dogs, I'm at four, two weeks from today I'll be at two... I'm really bummed about it. I haven't been at two since I dropped out. Won't be adding a third for at LEAST another 18 months.

What am I going to do with myself?!

Doubt the homeowner would appreciate that.

Absolutely not, haha. You two are evil.

It'll be one OR the other. If neither pan out for some reason, then no puppy for a while.

There are a lot of variables and other aspects weighing in. If I didn't like Mira's match so much this would be a lot easier. At least one pup is likely staying local, though, so that will be nice.

Unless Linds figures out how to clone Traveler. Then all bets are off.

When is she being bred/when is the other litter intended to happen? If one doesn't work out on the first shot, then you have the other. :P

Both are TBD, but puppies arriving sometime in 2014. Mira will be bred either in Dec or Aug, the other dog is uncertain.

If Mira is first -- if we elect not to keep a puppy for whatever reason (all males, small litter and we decide we can't turn away some of the homes that have been waiting, etc), then the other litter is in play.

If the other litter is first then we won't be taking a puppy from it because raising a FCR litter will be a full time job for us for several months. I don't do things by halves.

So you're right, timing will dictate options.

No I'm serious! Auggie's breeder said the reason Georgie is so small is because she had a smaller crate!
(not actually serious at all.)

I can understand the struggle though. I still can't decide if I want to get a Payton puppy the first time he is bred, or if I would rather wait and watch those puppies grow and get one on a future breeding. Of course it's easier since I have the dog and not the bitch and he'll likely be bred more times than a bitch would be, so I CAN wait. But do I really want to? Can I seriously resist Payton puppies being out in this world and NOT have one??

Most of them will probably go local-ish, to people I at least see fairly regularly at agility trials, so that MIGHT help me resist... might.
Or it might make me go WHY DIDN'T I GET A PUPPY. WHY.

Then she goes out and impresses the heck out of me and everyone else at these working tests and I get all wishy-washy again. And hubby is all for keeping a Mirapup. And frankly I can't think of a FCR breeding that would be more suited to what I want in a dog.

Why can't FCRs be in the 30-pound range?

/annoyed with self
You obviously just need to keep a Mirapup. She's too awesome to not want to!
