I hate posting names in this case, because I'd hate to offend anyone if they weren't particularly well liked, but I do want to know if anyone has heard of the Linlee folks in PA or Candlewyck? I talked with Linda from Candlewyck and she was just really nice and we spoke for over an hour about maltese. She seems to really love them and she seems like a no-nonsense kind of person, like I appreciate. She is still 3-4 hours driving, so it might not be reasonable for me to make that trip without almost committing to one. She said there is no obligation if I ever got there and decided I didnt, for whatever reason, like the puppy. Shes not asking for money or anything to hold it as far as I know, but that could be just because we talked about generalities and not a specific puppy. She is under the friends link of the www.linleemaltese.com web site and I really did like her. Also, she definately doesnt have anything at least until May and I am just dying here without a puppyNeither does Divine, which is one other I'd really like to use, but that involves shipping. Its really interesting how groups of breeders seem to run in the same circles, but dont seem to mix. Politics? just curious... Anyway, any feedback would be great.
