I just called my breeder to check how Zola was doing and she said he's fine, pick him up on Wednesday? I was like Wednesday, whhattt. He'll be 8 weeks on Wednesday and she said the whole litter has been her best and they are doing so well she wants them to go then. Everyone else is picking there pups up on Wed or Thurs. So heres the dilema. I don't have my hols from work until the week after. The breeder was not so happy about having to keep him for over a extra week. She wanted them all to go at the same time. I can't get the time of for him NOW tho, my work just wouldnt do it, there so short staffed. It's not like I;m trying to fit him in but I NEED to be there for him. Ahhhh I don't know what to do. I'm gonna talk with my boss tomorrow and see if there's anythign he can do

Unfortunatley my famil live 4 hrs from where I do. My mum has to book hols 3 weeks in advance and my dad is always busy as he has his own business. My boyfriends mum lives near but she works to, as a nurse. My hands are kinda tied. I want him NOW so bad. Anyone know any real good sickness excuses that don't involve having to see a doctor and lasts a few days. Not a sore throat. I can't fake that

WOAH!!! that's great news!! :D

You're right to want to be there, tricky one to figure out whatwith you being short staffed.........pull a sicky. :wink:

Say that you contracted a very sore throat the night before and were vomitting throughout the early hours of the next morning. They won't want you infecting the rest of the staff! :lol:

Or you could just explain that you have a necessary doctor appointment that afternoon, and that you can't go any other time it's that urgent.

I'm sure you'll get it sorted whether you lie or not, hehe!!
It's worth getting that time off somehow though, from what i've been reading. :wave:

Why is it such a big deal for the breeder to keep him an extra week?? You were expecting it to be another week so you made your plans with that in mind. It's the breeder who's messing things up, not you. I agree that you should be there for your new little one so maybe you can talk the breeder into keeping him an extra week? :)

One more thing. If I am off sick I only get sick pay for after the first 3 days I'm off. I would lose out on a big bit of my wages with just 3 days off it which I can't really afford. Ahhh I;m so stuck. I;m gonna see tomorrow if there is any actual holidays left to take on any of the days becuase if there is ill take any of the days I can, try and swap peole and my boyfriend can only take 1 day

The breeder said she would keep him for a another week but by the tone in her voice I knew she wasn't happy about it. She said they are all going on Wed/Thurs so maybe she wants him away at the same time cuz she knows he'll get really upset without his bros and sisters and its to much work for her. She already has 30 chi's of her own and another few litters. She just said he is health and she is really happy for him to go now oh and cuz I really want him now that I can actually have him

Dundee is a little to far from Glasgow, that is a shame tho we could get her some practise in, he he. I;m so excited now. No matter what I think I'll get him this Friday so It's only like 5 days to wait :lol: yeepeeee!!!
I'm going out for ice cream now to celebrate, in the rain I might add

sheesh whats wrong with your breeder if having pups is too much work for her he needs to reconsider - they shouldnt be going at 8 weeks anyways, if you had arranged with her originally for the week after and you have paid for him it is she who is going back on the agreement you had :wave:

I absolutely agree - I know how anxious you are to bring your baby home, but you have made all your plans around the following week and it is hardly fair of your breeder to make you feel guilty for keeping him an extra week.

As for making up an excuse due to illness, guess it's my old fashioned upbringing but I would just feel too guilty about telling a fib.

Whatever you decide, good luck!

I was never agreed I would get him the week after next that was just me guessing dates so I could book my hols. She gave her last liter away at 12 weeks but feels this litter is the most health she has had and they are ready to go now. Maybe she doesn't want to get to attached to them herself or keep them with mum that longer because they have been eating fine on there own for a few weeks now. I've already met her and seen her 30 chi's so I know they are well cared for and healthy. I don't believe she would want me to take him home if he was not ready.

I'll def be posting all the pics

she can say what she likes but chi pups are not ready to go at 8 weeks can you not push to get that extra week out of her by saying there is no other way around it - trust me you will end up with a more well behaved and socialised dog I have 2 one who left mom at 8 weeks and one who left later they are brother and sister and Lily who left later is so much more well behaved and does not bark or be aggressive with strangers and children etc where ozzy who i had at 8 weeks is , he barks constantly and I am ashamed to let him go by strangers as he is vile, they ahve both been socialised by me the same way - please trust me on this those extra weeks with mom make all the difference :wave:
