oh i know this is going to be as disappointing for all of you as it was for me. peewee came yesterday and i picked him up from LAX, such a sweet, beautiful dog. i completely respect the breeder he came from but unfortunately he wasn't the puppy in the picture.the dog was 5 months old and 3 times the size of tessa. after talking to the breeder we decided that we would send him back and maybe get a puppy down the road. i think you guys were right. the website wasn't updated since 9/13/04 and the same picture was on it so it couldn't have been the puppy i got.
i don't want to give you all the wrong impression but my fiancee and i had many reasons for returning the dog. i hope you guys can put yourself in my shoes. i was really upset having to send him back because i really consider myself a dog lover but i think the dog and i had a bad beginning. he was not what we thought at all. my breeder was very understanding, i think it was just poor communication.
we might hold off on getting another puppy if we ever get another at all. we had such a great experience with buying tessa we put a lot of faith into a next puppy as well. i took tessa to the vet last week and she was very happy to see such a healthy dog. she said tessa bite was perfect and her eyes were very bright and healthy. she had no complications, her fecal was negative, it was so wonderful! it's really hard to get a puppy that you have only seen in pictures, but tessa looks exactly the same as she did in her ad. i guess you just have to hope for the best. i wish the dog and tessa could have met before he had to go back but he had a cough and and ear infection so we didn't think it was a good idea. thank you all for being so caring and sorry i haven't posted but we've been back and forth from LAX trying to figure out this whole situation.
we were so excited, i can't even tell you. just waiting for him to be brought into cargo i was shaking because i was so excited. but that all went away quickly when we learned that this was not the puppy we had been eagerly awaiting...
i hope this does not reflect poorly on us or the breeder. i just think the picture of the dog she sent me should have been on his ad and not a picture of a past puppy, you know? -_- -_- -_-

thanks again guys. you know i incurred all the shipping costs, meaning i won't be reimbursed for the amount it cost to ship him to LAX or the amount it cost to send him back.
since it wasn't the pup in the picture, do you guys think that's fair? or should i talk to her and see if she will at the least pay for one way.
