Big Surprise In Store for Maddie and London This Weekend: We Need Puppy Nanny 911!!

My loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives and Roxy's Best Of... readers know that we've been planning to add a cockapoo puppy to our family this summer. We originally thought that our puppy would come from a cocker spaniel mom due in the first week of May, and we've been planning to bring our eight-week-old puppy home from the breeder in early July. Right now, it feels like I'm about seven months pregnant, getting ready for the new baby and working hard to finish things up at the office ahead of maternity leave in a couple of months. Maddie has been planning for months, doing research and learning how to take some of the responsibility for training and grooming our new arrival. I'm a long-term planner, so I've been reading and studying: "Puppies For Dummies" as well as the Dog Whisperer's "How to Raise the Perfect Dog" by Cesar Millan. I also ordered his six DVD Boxed Set as "a present for Maddie." But who am I trying to kid? I can't stay focused on work and I become easily distracted by making plans for puppy. I've been ordering a few key items online and visiting Petco with Rex and the girls from time to time.

We've been planning to make the trip to Pleasant Valley, New York to visit the new cockapoo puppies at Mulberry Farm this weekend. Now here's the big surprise...
