    My Little Bea came to me in a similar way. I wanted Piebald Female and I waited and waited. When the third litter didn't produce a piebald anybody, I got Bea.

    Bo came later when I started thinking about adding a rescue to my little pack. I had completed the forms at CBRR (now PNWBR) and had officially opened my heart and mind to the possibility --- and here comes Bo. Perfect.

    Put it out there in the universe. It will happen.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your baby. As others have said though when the time is right you will find the perfect fit, it always happens when you least expect it.

    So sorry about Bentley, that has to be very hard on you and the breeder. But it might be for the best, you just never know. As far as the breeders with the bad review, I think it depends on the complaint and what the breeder did about the problem if anything. Most reputable breeders will try to rectify the problem, but sometimes you just can't please everyone. There are a lot of breeders out there that do not stand behind their pups and are just out for the money. So take your time and talk to people who have their pups, and also find out who their vet is and talk to the vet also. Good luck in your search.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Although my connection was only through one visit and a handful of pictures each week, a relationship had built and an attachment was there. It will take a while to heal, but I fully believe that it will lead me to the puppy I was suppose to be with. Having a mother who successfully fought breast cancer a couple of years ago, I understand that things happen for a reason and will fall into place the way they were meant to be. I am still feeling the loss of Bentley and will for some time, but I did agree to look this afternoon at a litter in Indiana. The breeder is actually one that I looked at prior to selecting a closer breeder for Bentley. I waited 8 years to be able to select Bentley and I will continue waiting until I feel that it was meant to be.

    What a sad outcome, they are so fragile as puppies, but a loss at 6 weeks of age is very tragic. I am very sorry for your loss.

    I think it shows a lot about your character that you want to find the right puppy for your family and are not rushing into it. Take your time, meet some new breeders, many times the really good ones have a waiting list but patience is something you have and eventually you will find that bond with another and everything will just feel right.
