The business of dogs can be so distasteful at times. Yeah, good luck getting your dog back. But Trixx.... you hadn't seen or heard of your dog in a YEAR?
Is this standard procedure for lots of you breeders? Sending them away up to a year? Never getting feedback that whole time? I mean, really as a pet owner this is mind boggling to me! I wonder in a line-up... would you even be able to pick out your dog.... ?
Your concern for your dog up to this point has been ... well, I think under whelming. Now, don't think I don't wish you to get your dog back, I certainly do. As I think there is lots to be concerned about, as per Molly's post illustrates.
I am just astounded that it has taken you, Trixx a full year to wonder WTF about your dog.
