Picked our breeder. We are on a Waiting list!

We have finally picked our breeder.

We are now on a waiting list with Karla at New World for a 1/2 African boy out of her Kita x Willow crossing.

We went with her because she is nearby, we get along with her well,
and we are close in many of our philosophies, like rawfeeding.

This breeding is planned for fall/winter 2010, so the timing fits quite well with what we were hoping for.

We weren't originally thinking of going this way. I was thinking more of going with a kennel that had lots of field titles, but we fell in love with Kita, and we really like Karla, and I feel right about this.

I'm so excited.

You can't go wrong with Karla…. Tell her "Pat at Tanza" says HI!!!!!

Sounds like a good plan, congrats.
..oh the wait..it would kill me, but you what they say..the one who waits for something good, I mean great…

That is so exciting!! I love both of those dogs 🙂 Congrats!

Good choice! I really like Karla and her dogs. She's on my short list if I get another basenji some day. It's going to seem like forever! Trust me! :p

Pat, I don't think the waiting is the hard part,…the losing sleep with a puppy is the hard part. But you can't beat having a sweet pup to love.

But the losing sleep part is totally worth it! 😃

I do think that having a basenji puppy is wonderful. Its a lot of work, but done correctly, you will have a companion from pup to senior.
I can't wait until you start sending photos of your new addition.

Sharron, the only one that ever kept us up at night was Nicky. Rally was easy, only asking to go out once a night. Rio and Sophie were born here and so I think that made the transition easier. That and I know Sam cheats and sneaks them in bed after their 2 am potty break but it is all in the hopes of having one that sleeps curled up next to his chest. So far this has been an utter failure and they sleep almost anywhere but there. I am sure he hasn't given up hope though and he will probably sneak the next one out at night too.

That is what I mean by a good owner…I mean, I think b's belong in the bed with their people..having puppy breath next to you is wonderful.

Do you think your b's get too hot sleeping next to hubby?
During this heat wave we had up here in the PNW, I would have loved for the 2 b's to sleep some place else, but nope, there were in bed with me.
The photos of this pup will be a joy to behold.

No, they sleep by his legs, on his head, behind his back, as I said pretty much anywhere but right next to his chest which is what he wants. Nicky is the only one who will sleep there and he sleeps next to me unless I am out of town.

Congrats on picking a breeder and getting on the future puppy list…hope you are successful in getting a pup! 😃 How exciting!

Oh, and regarding the sleeping - I truly think the secret weapon for sleep, besides wearing my pup out before bed, was the snugglepuppy that Lisa (lvoss) recommended. Definitely get one of those!

Liyah had no problems sleeping - I only remember her crying the first 2 nights and then only for 15 or 20 minutes, otherwise, I've always had my full night sleep. So sleepwise, for me a puppy was easy, as was potty training.
