Made a decision on my next dog


Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to hear this. I can imagine how disappointed you must be.

 

Bad enough about the puppy but non-refundable ferry tickets is adding insult to injury. Can they be transferred to someone else, i.e. resold?

We are terrible planners, always book things last minute, but this we planned so we could get decent prices

Guessing Jig went to be an SAR dog then?

 

I'd go and see them while you're over. You can see their dogs in person which will help in your decision what to do. Or Rachel might now of something suitable elsewhere.

 

Rather than a young pup they may have something a few months old you fall in love with.

So sorry to hear about the delay in getting your pup. (because I know you will get one.)

 

I agree with others to just relax, have a good vacation, see family, and follow mum24dog's suggestions. You never know what is going to happen. Be prepared!!

I think there might be a happy ending to this , I stumbled upon a lovely litter of fluffy tri-colors in Scotland that are just about the same age as the pup I was supposed to be getting. Private breeding and the only reason they have pups left is that all but one were dogs, they are keeping the bitch, one dog is spoken for, everyone who had reserved wanted bitches, which is the only reason I was going to be able to get one of the Killiebrae dogs so easily. I will make a decision on Saturday when I find out if the Killiebrae tri puppy is going to become a SAR dog. I thought that decision had been made when I posted but it has been put off till Friday.

I said I did not want to go to Scotland for a pup, but as my husband said, what's a little more driving ... It's only another 4 hours north! And he was only ever sailed on the Clyde and not seen any of the country.

That's the spirit! Our last full day in the UK, we started in Scotland, went to Wales to look at dogs, and ended up near Manchester for the night. Easy drive (because I was napping in the back). Good luck on the pup hunt!

Looks like you'll be off to Scotland Karen. Bring warm clothes.

 

I should be there tomorrow but forgot to enter the show. Was there a couple of weeks ago and will be there again next month. Easy driving from the west - would avoid the M8 from Glasgow to Edinburgh though.
