@AGJM - I know. It's been almost six months for us, and the house seems way too quiet sometimes. It takes time.
My husband has contacted some breeders, but I'm not sure I'm ready for a puppy just yet. Of course it would be a few months, so we'll see.
Rant: A few years ago I pre-ordered some books from Amazon. They are part of a series and were being reprinted, so I bought # 1 through 12, and 18 through 20 as they came out. I was hoping to get them all in the same format.The ones I had pre-ordered were supposed to be available in a couple of months, then they kept pushing back the publication date. Eventually they said the publication date was 2035. In other words, when hell freezes over. I keep getting emails from them saying 'we're still trying to get these books for you'. So I finally decided to look for them second hand, and found a couple of them, and the others I bought new, but they're all in a different format from the recently reprinted ones.
Yesterday, I got an email from Amazon saying one of them - the third one of this bunch, #15 in the series - will be delivered in September. Sure, now that I've bought it elsewhere. And, what about 13 and 14? and 16 and 17? I'll have read them all by then anyway, and if they do print them all I can return the secondhand ones to the store for a partial refund, and they'll buy the new ones for sure. But geez!
