And I said, "Nope, I want a puppy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">"<br><br>
So even though he'll be here after Valentines Day, this is what I chose instead:<br><br><a href="http://www.creeksidemastiff.com" target="_blank">www.creeksidemastiff.com</a><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

DH actually yesterday asked me if our newer cat counted as a Valentine's Day Present for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
I was like..."uh, nope she was a late Birthday present/early Christmas present." I am a VERY difficult person to buy for and I don't like things really as presents. He will buy me tea, or something we can eat up usually<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .<br><br>
He sort of has it right though, our kitty Heaven is sort of a gift that keeps on giving <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . I don't know if I've ever enjoyed a kitty this much! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My peke came as a birthday/not going to have any more human babies, present...best present ever. When I think I want another baby, I just carry him with me everywhere and the feeling goes away.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>

Danielle, his litter is due to whelp 3/4, and he'll be shipped to us at the end of April. As excited as I am, you'd think <b>I</b> was pregnant <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'll post pics when he gets here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Isn't waiting exciting but difficult? Our Gordon setter puppy is due to be whelped about 10-12 days after your puppy, and we're taking a road trip to pick him up in mid-May. Waiting for confirmation of the mama's pregnancy was so nerve-racking!<br><br>
I'd take a puppy over jewelry any day!

Totally nerve wracking!! I was the first person to put a deposit down to hold a puppy, but the breeder is keeping either a dog or bitch pup and the sire's owner is getting the male pick pup- so I'm scared to death that Twister is going to have only 2 male puppies and we'll have to hunt for another breeder. Mastiff breeders usually breed VERY infrequently, so finding another is going to be a real challenge if things turn out that way. Plus, I really want a puppy from this breeding. The waiting is sorta more fun that waiting out the end of a human pregnancy, though- no constant heartburn or little feet jammed up into my ribcage or agains my bladder all the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

We were also the first to put down a deposit with our breeder. Her vet only expects 4-6 pups, a rather small litter for Gordons. DH really wants a male, I'm happy with either, and dh says a female is fine if that's how it turns out. That must be driving you crazy not knowing if you'll get a puppy from this particular breeding. And I agree about the heartburn and feet in the ribcage and bladder! Plus, the gestation is so much shorter.<br><br>
Sending you Twister-has-at-least-3-male-puppies vibes!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thanks for the vibes!! They are X-raying today to find out how many puppies she's carrying, but we won't know sexes till next week when they're born- I have my heart set on a male, so the stress is pretty high. I went into a pet store right down the street from the vet clinic where I work and they had a female Bullmastiff pup- it made me sick to my stomach to see here there, and they told me that she came from Hunte Corp, too, so she's definately a puppy mill puppy. She was happily chewing on a pigs ear, and I wanted to take her home so badly, just to get her out of there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I shudder to think of people breeding Mastiffs with no OFA certifications or genetic testing- I hope she is healthy, but wouldn't bet on it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I've got a friend with a male Gordon, his name is Huck and he's gorgeous. I have seen a couple Gordon puppies and they are SO dang cute! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
