I was torturing myself yesterday by looking at different breeders and what they've produced. None of my preferred breeders are going to have anything on the ground for a while, so I'm going to have to start branching out into their outside lines.

Haha, was that how you decided? Abrams is a beautiful dog and I do really like Chessies. But I think lab wins over the unknown. I feel too attached to the breed to get a different retriever.

I'm having a real hard time finding a local lab breeder. There are some fabulous bench breeders around but I want to find someone in the middle. I was going to go with a breeder in washington but I don't think she'll have puppies in the time frame that would be ideal for me. She just whelped one litter and it has all chocolates, but they're spoken for anyways. I think I'm going to email her anyways since I don't seem to be having any luck in alberta. But I still need to dig!

Also, for anyone who might have any good leads, please PM me if you know of any good breeders within BC, Alberta, Sask, WA, and Montana.
Yup, I had been set on getting a male black Lab for like....five years. Then as time started drawing closer, I was all like, "Well, maybe I should get a smaller dog, since I'll be renting and moving and God knows what else." So I started researching smaller breeds, mainly the various types of Spaniels. Then I was like, "But man, I really really like Retrievers...." So I started looking at Lab breeders again. Then I was all like, "But I really like a more serious, protective dog, and Michael is going to be gone and I'd really like to have a dog that would give me a sense of security, but I really like Retrievers and can't have a commonly banned breed due to renting/moving...."so I started looking at Chessies (and Curlies).
And since I couldn't find any Labrador breeders in my area breeding the type of dog I wanted (moderate type, I hate heavy bench dogs and super wispy field dogs) and the Curly coat type wasn't doing it for me (although now I think I'd LOVE it) I said, "Okay, a Chessie!" ROFL Then Abrams' breeder had a litter just when I needed one and she had a person back off her wait list so I could get a male, and wahlah, Abrams became mine.

And, Zhucca, I'm *pretty* sure I know what breeder you are talking about in WA, and if you like the dogs she produces, she is SUPER helpful and would be more than happy to point you in the direction of some local breeders. I'm clear in Indiana, and I had emailed her at one point or another to ask her if she knew of anyone in my area and she was able to point me to someone in PA. So even if she isn't going to have a litter in the time frame you want, she is super nice and super helpful and should help you find a breeder in your area that will.

That always makes it hard, when you know what you want but the folks producing it don't have anyone available to match your timing. Good luck in your search!

I'm always scared to post these things because I don't want to jinx anything, but momma dog has been confirmed pregnant and is due January 19th. Fingers crossed for a female!

OH
So after I posted last night I found a puppy and recommended him to my sister. She e-mailed the breeder. It's a cute as heck little blue merle and the breeder has him listed as a performance prospect, and he looks nice and smart and bold, but not too wild (AKA Payton.) I think he'll make a nice little dog for her.

We're hoping she hears back. And I hope she takes him because if she doesn't I will be severely tempted oh God. There was video of him playing in a tiny puppy tunnel. And another video where she had him snuggled in her arms and he was on his back like a baby and she was getting his belly. IT'S LIKE A CALMER, BLUE MERLE PAYTON. FFFFFFFFFFFFF


ETA: My sister just texted me, she e-mailed her back and is going to call and talk to her today EEEEEEEEEEE PUPPY
EEEEEEEEEE PUPPY!!!!!!! :D fingers crossed!

Well, I don't know that I'm going to be able to hold off until 2015 as planned....I went and contacted a few breeders (Bracco and Shikoku, for those interested!). Just testing the waters and discussing their lines, but still...I also have my eye on a GSP breeder who produces, to me, some of the most gorgeous dogs on the planet - they have a solid liver stud that makes me drool like no other GSP I've seen - and they do both conformation and hunting, which I like. Also considering the Springer, thanks to the suggestions of people here. I think the Shikoku might be a little snarkier toward other dogs than I'm looking for (the breeder I contacted admitted that they can be very very pushy toward other dogs, and Astro leans on the pushy but friendly side as well - I don't want a situation where no one will back down).

Too soon to tell. But I'm definitely saving my pennies and doing more and more research, to make this happen sooner rather than later :D

Ooooooooooooh GSP GSP!

There are some awesome dual purpose dogs around, more than a lot of breeds I'm aware of :D Fred is not, he's a show boy... But I'm going dual purpose next time, fo'sho!!! My only gripe is I don't want a docked dog, and working dogs are still legally docked here (docking is illegal otherwise).... So could be trickier than just finding a breeder!!!!!!

You must post lots of photos if you get a puppy soon!!
