The day has started cool and overcast, just right for a walk along the prom as hopefully there won’t be many people about.
The search for a new pup continues, and I am getting more and more angry at websites or adverts online that don’t respond to my enquiries. I went direct to a breeder last night and tried to send an email, but when I hit send, nothing happened. This morning I have three new notifications about puppies for sale (I’ve had 7 this week), but not one reply to the enquiries I have already sent.
When we first moved here, there were two boarding kennels within about 100 yards of each other and BOTH always seemed to have puppies for sale. Those signs disappeared a couple of years ago, whether Covid related or not, and I looked up the website of one, to find that they are ‘closed now’. A sign of the times I guess.
We are always checking the rescue centres, and the closest match so far is a ten month old GSD. He is described as active, bouncy, and BIG, needing a lot of training and discipline. At ten months, that could be more than a handful for us.
There is another crossbreed of a year but he is nervous, has anxiety and separation issues, and cannot cope with loud noises.
We are convinced there is a new pup for us somewhere. Maybe he/she hasn’t been born yet, but it would be so nice to have JUST ONE reply, even if it’s to say, sorry, nothing available or their asking price is way out of our league.
Not much on our agenda today. Weigh in was good and I have maintained this week. I’m rather pleased about that as I had a couple of ‘bad days’ last week.
Have a lovely day everyone. Keep safe, and take care.
