Thanks to Myra Burrow for making the transaction a pleasant one. I was scared to death that maybe it wasn't going to go well. There are all kinds of dishonest people in this world who want to take your money and run. I am happy to say that this went flawlessly
My other concern was without being able to visit the breeder knowing about the kennel conditions (puppy mill?). I feel I did what I could by checking Humane Society reports and finding absolutely nothing negative about this kennel.
On the ride home from the airport it was all I could do to leave him in his crate! Look at that face. Izzie loves him but doesn't realize how big she is. She is used to being the little dog at 20 lb! He looks like a guinea pig next to her. He sort of sounds like one too when he whimpers.
His breed is Cavachon, which is the same as Izzie-dog. A mix of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Bichon frise. They are very low shedding and as hypoallergenic as they come. The hubster is allergic to regular doggies but can tolerate these guys.
So this is what I will be consumed with/by for the immediate future. Off to the vet for his well-puppy check!
