We decided that we would look into getting a new puppy and after searching through AKC for Portuguese Water Dog breeders within 500 miles of Livingston we found one north of Dallas with two eight week old puppies available.
We named her Bonnie and we're presently going through the potty training stage although she's getting the idea that if she goes to the door she'll be taken out to do her business. Having to take her out a couple of times during the night is the hard part.
She'll still have her needle sharp puppy teeth for a couple more months and everyone will be glad when her permanent teeth are in. Hayley who is tolerating her more and more each day only gets mad at her when Bonnie chomps her tail.
Before we got Bonnie we had planned on taking a trip to Canada this summer but due to Border regulations regarding required Rabies vaccinations we had to cancel our trip plans. Bonnie is too young for her vaccination as pups don't get it until 20 weeks of age. However she will have all her vaccinations by the time we head for Mexico in November.
