Default Diary of Bosco's Mom

I'm starting a diary even though I can't take Bosco home for 18 days. I am hoping this will make time move faster!

Well I called the breeder today, crossed my fingers, and asked her if hubby and I could come see little Bosco this weekend. My excuse was I wanted to bring him a little fleece blanket and a toy so he has stuff that smells like his mama when he comes home with us. But really I just want to see him! Carol, the breeder, is really cool and said no problem. So we are driving 1 hour 45 minutes to visit him on Saturday! I will of course take 50 million photos and post them here.

The picture below is the fleecie blanket we got him. It's for a baby but I still thought it was cute for a little boy dog. We also picked him up a little plush squeaky toy - it is a leopard print bone. Hubby (Karl) picked him out a puppy Kong for small breeds. We also got a neat food dish and water bowl.

I'll post more later. Including Bosco's baby photos. This will be the place where I post all of his pics.

Anna, the blanket is very cute!!

How did you decide on the name Bosco? (I am sure it's a coincidence but that name means "wood" in italian )

LOL, I assure you we didn't name Bosco because of it's Italian meaning!

Karl and I are both big Seinfeld fans, and there was one episode which featured George and the secrecy around his ATM PIN. He wouldn't tell ANYONE what it was...then the secret started to eat at him and he finally ended up telling some woman in a coma. Well the woman woke up and screamed it out --- BOSCO! Which apparently is the name of some chocolate drink? Anyway, the word makes me smile, and so does the dog - so they are a good fit for each other.

Well I thought I better post some pics of Bosco here! Below are a couple pictures that were taken when he was 2.5 weeks old.

The breeder sent me an updated photo of Bosco when he was almost 4 weeks old. He's got the cutest expression on his face but the picture wasn't so great - it was blurry and kind of dark and when I scanned it, it looks even worse! So I don't think I'll post that one. I'll just wait till I see him this weekend and then post those!

I'm trying to come up with a schedule for Bosco. I am thinking I will wake up an extra half-hour early (5a.m.) so I can feed him breakfast and then take him for a quick walk. Then when I get home from work (3p.m.) I will feed him again and take him for an afternoon walk. In the evening, I will feed him once more. Those walks are subject to good weather only, though! I hope feeding him 3x a day as a pup is good enough. I read somewhere that you should feed them 3x and another place said to ALWAYS have food available as pups. I'll have to look into this further.

Well I think I've avoided doing work enough for now! More later!
Anna

Well I have started having nightmares about little Bosco! I had this dream that we went to pick him up. I was so excited! So we get there, and it is an abandoned warehouse. There are floors and floors with no electricity or furniture or anything with glass on the floor and stuff. Well, the breeder takes me to where Bosco is, and he is long-haired! So Karl is saying to me “Don’t worry about it, don’t worry about it.” I tell the breeder, “You said he would be a smoothcoat!” and she just says “get his hair cut regularly and he will be!” I am so mad!

I go upstairs to talk to the breeder and try to tell her I am not paying full-price. Then Karl comes running to me and says “Come here, you have GOT to see the mom!” so we go back downstairs and there is this HUGE dog. I mean HUGE. Like a horse almost! I tell the lady “I thought you said our puppy was a Chihuahua!” and she says “Well I admit, the mother is not breed standard…but I assure you she is a Chihuahua.”

And then I woke up - Eep! I was traumatized all day by that dream! Anyway, just thought I would share.

Well tomorrow we get to visit little Bosco! I am looking forward to seeing how much he has changed in just 4 weeks time. Last time he just sort of crawled around and licked our fingers when we held him...now he will be walking around and playing! It's funny how attached I am to him already and I don't even *know* him yet.

When we went to see the litter last month, the girl dog we were planning to get was kind of whimpering a little, and the breeder said she was probably mad because before we had got there, Bosco had poo'ed on her! LOL I like to think that he did that so she would be stinky and he would be cuter! What an evil lil monkey!

I am going to the library tonight to see if they have any books on Chihuahua's. They probably won't but it's worth a shot! I want to read the Chihuahua's for Dummies book...it is $17 so I would like to read through it and then purchase it if I thought I would refer back to it later on.

Well that's all the news for today I suppose! The next time I post in here, I will have lotsa pictures to share! YAY

The dummies book is a very good basic book, worth the investment.
