This is gonna sound a bit silly, but I'm curious if any of you all have different emotional ties to a pup out of a litter that you have bred and decided to keep-LOL?
We have a 16 month old female out of our FC/AFC-Esprits Power Play x Copper daughter breeding. She is 1 of 3 dogs that we own. As much as we love our 2 older girls our baby Sweet has become the "Queen" of our home. I swear that her training has evolved at a snails pace due to her being pampered like a royal child. She is quite the character. Smart, hard driving, biddable, and crazy athletic. But babied by yours truly!!!
Now this is not the first time I've bred, raised, and trained one of my pups, but the last time I kept 2 pups and sold one at 7 months.
Anyone else guilty of, in the words of my better half Joanna, "baby girl-ing" a pup that you've raised from birth?
