I've decided to start a new thread, one that is not named, "Amra" after the dog I'm not getting.
Here is the last post I posted on the "Amra" thread, explaining what just happened:
"It was meant to be.
Australian Shepherd puppy, I'm going to kick myself if this doesn't work out.
Our house and yard is like the coolest place to be for kids (usually ages 8-13ish) in our neighborhood. Everybody hangs out around here (my little sister is 8, my little brother is 12) and brings all their friends, too. It just so happens that one of our neighbor's friends brought their Australian Shepherd puppy over to our yard while I was outside riding the dirt bike. I knew what kind of dog it was right away because I had just been looking at an ad for an Australian Shepherd puppy and I was doing some research on them. I rushed up to it and it was so sweet and adorable! I brought my mom outside and she fell in love. Immediately, she came inside and emailed the person who had the female Australian Shepherd puppy, asking them a few questions, and telling them that we would love to go see the dog on Saturday if they still had her.
I'm just amazed, it's like it was meant to be. I'm never outside and around those kids (considering how much younger they are and not to mention how annoying they can get) and it just so happens that some random friend of theirs was at one of their houses that day with their puppy that happens to be an Australian Shepherd.
I really hope this works out. If it doesn't, like I said, I'm going to kick myself. It's hard not getting my hopes up.
So I'll let you guys know when they respond to my mom's email.
WISH ME LUCK!!
The woman (or man) replied quickly and said yes, they still have the female. We are 'visiting' the female on Saturday, although I know that really means that we are buying her. My mom made me promise that I'd brush the dog often (to reduce shedding) and considering it's an hour and a half away, we probably won't be making that trip twice.
This happened sooner than I expected and I'm very pleased! In addition, I have a half day of school on Thursday, and I have Friday and Monday off. This will be a great weekend! Thank you guys for the support in the "Amra" thread, but this thread is for my new puppy and I'm looking forward to hear what you guys have to say!
Here are the pictures posted of my new puppy that we will be picking up on Saturday:
She's precious, right?
