When deciding on North, as the litter's sole male crown prince, I learned his sisters were all rather independent as pups where he would whine and cry until he got attention. Nothing has changed. What I thought was cute then . . . in the middle of the night now, not so much. Whether you chose your pet from a breeder or through adoption, how picky a role did gender-picking play?
