Oh, puppy mills were not what I had in mind when I said that. Showdog breeders were. Puppy mills... don't get me started. I saw one this week who presented herself as a breeder of championship lined dogs... she is a cattle person who treats dogs like livestock. Unsanitary, crowded, and her bitch is working on developing an anxiety disorder or my name ain't Red Chili. And she bred a Blue Merle to a Sable, which is NOT done for genetic reasons, and ... and... OK breathe in, breathe out...

So you do dog stuff, eh? We must speak, suh.

Bummer, give me a call when ever. We have some great foods for pups and adult dogs, even some for cats.

Beautiful new puppy Bill

I love shelties - We've had several over the years and they were all great companions. Currently I'm saddled with a schizophrenic Bichon Frise that is afraid of his own shadow...My sister-in-law decided to buy the dog for my oldest daughter for her birthday without asking us...Much like they did on the pony they bought as well

Took off to Idaho with Tramontana who graciously (no, way MORE than graciously) offered to co-drive just for the heck of it. Boz is a very generous person and very good company.

I-80 was a terror. We had winds up to 50mph from the SW, and saw a dozen jack-knifed semis, and maybe a dozen vehicles off in the snow in the median and shoulder, several rolled and rather nasty. One had two ambulances. Just giving the Taco slight throttle resulted in sideways motion. Once we neared Rock Springs though, it was smooth (if long) sailing to Idaho.

Picked up Ty, got the run through of shots and other particulars, got the tour of old Powerwagons (he has some really really COOL Powerwagons, a flatfender Willys, an old M something or other Jeep, an Army Mule vehicle, and a great shop area with a waste-oil burning wood stove). Met all her dogs, including Ty's dad Deuce, who is an incredible dog and not usually interested in people much - of course, I had to rise to the challenge, and started scratching his chest, which had him putty in my hands and suddenly lost interest in anything else. He figured I was pretty OK as people go.

One of her dogs has a thing for chasing laser pointers. Really funny. Her cats play with the puppies and that will work out well for Ty and our Miss Kitty. Her other dogs jump into their two-tier kennel crates in the heated garage just by opening the doors. They are all like a bunch of kids in dog suits, all smart, and all very good natured.

Dinner with them at the sub shop had us discussing the incoming storm, and memories of I-80 had me thinking return routes and timing. We decided to drive through the night and beat the storm, and since I-80 had a high wind warning (as opposed to what we drove through? ) starting at 2AM, I-70 was looking better all the time. So that is what we did.

1500 miles in 30 hours will wear a boy out for sure. We traded driving and did it safely though.

After one afternoon home, Ty is quickly getting the 'potty outside' thing. He learned tricks, played enthusiastically with everyone, endeared my wife and kids to himself, and is enthusiastically eating - he didn't seem to need an adjustment period and doesn't cry through the night (kenneled in our bedroom of course), and seems to be a very well-settled, confident social dog.

Well worth being picky about where to get him!
Sincerely,
-Stoked New Dad!
