Since the families are spread pretty much all over the southwest, what she's going to do is, after we've met the puppies, each of us is to submit our #1,2,3 choices. That way, it won't matter when we see the puppies on the actual 'meet & greet' weekend of April 28/29.
Then, she'll look at our choices in the order that we actually get to pick (based upon when we paid our deposit).

Since we aren't traveling over on that weekend, she's doing a couple of Facetime events with us. One today & I think one on the 28/29 weekend. I would guess shortly after the 29th we'll know which one is to be ours. My DD & I drive to Flagstaff & pick him up on Mother's Day.

She's got a FB page & has some pics & a couple of videos posted up there. She slacked off a bit this past week because of a family matter.  https://www.facebook.com/RedRockDoodles/

I am really excited for you.
THANKS! We're excited too.
But also pretty nervous. Haven't had a puppy since 2004 & philosophies have changed so much. Plus, I'm not at home nearly as much. This pup is going to be 'raised' at my office with all my co-workers. That will be fine, except for the potty training.

The biggest shock for me with a puppy was having to get up during the night to take her out for a potty break - that's not something you have to do with cats!  If it's been a while, you may have forgotten that part.
I looked at the FB page - those are cute pups!!

Her crate training is good, potty training is good (knock on wood).
We are now in the puppy-shark phase where she is biting, biting, biting!!

Sounds like things are going along as expected. She is adorable!

Cute pup.  :)

How do you post photos?  I am surprised to see photo in my signature again.  I didn't do anything to make that happen.  It looks like Photobucket is still behind a paywall.  I'm not payin'.

Thanks, Sandpiper.
In your post about posting pics & the Photobucket fiasco, someone mentioned https://vgy.me
That's what I've been using to get BB links to post pics.

When you copy the BB link into a post here, the first part of the copied link will be [img]
I add height= and a number.
For the 2 photos above, I used height=100
For the others, I think I used height=150

So it looks like: [img height=100]

One of the things I love about 'doodles (I know, I'm weird) is their "woe is me" expressions:

I probably should know -- what is BB?

Nope ... you probably shouldn't know ...
So, technically I should have said "when you copy the 'BB Coded Direct URL' "
And, thanks (as always) to Wikipedia, this is what BB Code is.
(Lots of copy/pasting here; I figure out how to use, I don't necessary know the behind-the-scenes-details!  :P

... but it really is very easy if you just go to the website.
On the main screen it tells you to drage a file to the site & then it does the rest & then one of the options is that 'BB Coded Direct URL' that you can copy.
You don't have to know the behind-the-scenes-stuff

:)  Thank you.  I will work on it in the next couple days.  Looks like it should be easy -- similar to using Photobucket.  I knew how to work with that.  I do like technology, but then sometimes I get tired of it all. 

Always kinda laugh when I think about . . . my mom died in '96 at age 89.  In her last couple years she thought greatest invention was the TV remote.  So much to come and still is.
