I just got an email from the breeder I like. She said she bred her female, Ms. Bluebell and male, Dudley, this morning, so puppies should be arriving April 1-3. She knows I want a smooth blue and tan male, so from now on, it's up to Bluebell and Dudley. I have placed my order with the Dachshunds Gods. She said Bluebell is "known for throwing blue and tans" --she is one--and Dudley is a Piebald, so she thinks she'll have blue and tans, Isabella and tans, and piebalds. Holy cow!!! I'm about to FREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They're going to look like a bunch of squirming little Easter eggs in April.
I just hung up with Benji, my fellow puppy wanter, after casting a total puppy freakness upon him. And, yes, I know "wanter" is not a word, but I like it, therefore it is. Benji's the one that made me get Sis, way back when, because he KNEW when Wigman died, I'd be a basket case without another dog, and he was 100% correct. Nothing like having someone really know you, and he does. He probably also wanted a puppy-- but that's another story.
