Seems my 24 hour delay in making my mind up and my decision to make sure I had plans in place for support has most likely cost me Mary.
The breeder has been inundated apparently.
Well she is the ONLY curly haired Portuguese Water Dog puppy in the whole of the UK for a good 6 months now so no wonder.
Got to wait for a couple to visit her on the weekend before I find out if I've got a chance. They want to see if she sets off one of the prospective owners allergies.
I've got fingers crossed but I'm not hopeful
