I'm pretty excited.
My last Brittany (back in 1995) was just a pup from a friend's dogs, that I fumbled through trying to train. Since then, all my dogs have been adult hand-me-downs or rescues. This is the first time in my life I've been in the position to afford a well-bred pup and the first time I have been able to get professional help with the training.
This will also be the first time my wife has had a puppy in the house. (I've done my best to warn her of the 'challenges'.
All my hunting buddies run Vizsla or GSPs, so this guy will be a quite change.
We put a deposit down with Jimmie Summerlin a little while back and the puppies were born right before Christmas.
An white & orange male from this litter. Rye will probably be his name.
I'm still talking with friends and hunting buddies (as well as the posts from a recent thread here) about trainers... we need to figure that out by July, so we can get him to a week of puppy school at 6 months.
My wife is really excited about going out in a couple of weeks to pick out the pup. I guess he will be coming home around the middle of February. I hope my work schedule cooperates, I'd hate to bring him home, then take off for a week business trip...that just would right for the pup or my wife
