    I have just got off the phone to the breeder of the puppy we are getting, and he said he had taken the litter to the vets to have their jabs yesterday and the vet said she would be happy for the puppies to go to their forever homes a little earlier than 8 weeks :thumbup: so we are going to see how the do over the next few days and then Holly can come home. But if not the lastest it is going to be is friday. I'm so excited I have just gone through all her things again just to make sure i'm not missing anything. I'm sitting here with a HUGE grin on my face anyone would think I have won the lottery :D xx

    Aww yay, all the best and good luck for your new arrival...try not to get your pup too early as excited you may be!! It is best they stay with their mummy as long as possible.

    Pics soon please!! Hehe.

    i thought vets wouldnt usually vaccinate pups under 8weeks?
    i would also try and wait til the 8 week mark, its quite vital for the pup to have that time with its siblings to learn early socialisation, bite inhibition etc.

    dont wanna dampen your excitement, you will get you puppy before you know it!

    aww i know about not getting her too early but she will be 8 weeks old on friday, so it's not going to be very early but the vet that said it my husband knows very well and we trust what she says, so even if we do get her earlier than 8 weeks old its not going to be much before 8 weeks, I made one of these pitapata's and I put in the date of birth and its come up as 1 month 2 weeks and 5 days! but it was 7 weeks yesterday lol. Oh and I will put loads of pics on here lol you will prob be asking me to stop posting pics haha xx

    Aww! They are the cutest when they are pups. However I honestly never realised how big they would get, as my friend has a 1 year old, and she's a lot bigger than my Holly... lol

    Good luck =]
