Hello all, Our BC recently developed an aggressive cancer and passed quickly, less than 3 weeks from first sign to his passing. We had done a full blood workup (regular thing each year) just 3 months prior and the results showed a very healthy dog, we fully expected Kona to live another 3-5 years. We were extremely blessed to have been part of such a wonderful animals life. Kona was our companion, he was part of nearly everything we did, from getting up in the morning to bedtime. While I've had dogs my entire life, Kona was far more than what most people seem to think of as a dog. Kona was so much a part of our lives we are still having trouble dealing with loss. We have been shocked by the number of neighbors and park friends that have been affected by his passing. I had no idea he touched so many people. Like probably every BC owner I could go on and on with stories of what a wonderful dog he was. One of his best traits was Kona really preferred people. He would forego other animals if any humans were around, he truly was our companion. As fate would have it when Kona passed we were babysitting our kids dogs and then later another BC and we realize we probably should not wait as long as we have in the past to start over. Kona's parents were both working dogs on a farm in northern Calif, and even though he did not herd livestock he had several jobs, we loved his intelligence, energy and loving ways. He was the most gentle 60lb lap dog I've ever seen. We have a large yard and pretty much are home bodies. While Kona can never be replaced, my wife and I would like to find a couple BC puppies. We are thinking that we should get 2 this time. Last time I had a golden to help teach and entertain when we are not there. But starting with 2 puppies at the same time will be a new experience for us, any advice is very welcomed. I would like to find a breeder that will allow us to meet the puppies before we buy, as I would prefer to have the puppy chose us, rather than the other way. Kona immediately and very definitely chose me and it was immediately apparent our bond was natural and deep. I would appreciate any recommendations. Thank you.
