Growing up, of course I attend Sheffield schools where the eb was our mascot. We had a real bully for the school named Jeramiah, and I fell in love. I was very active in school cheering and was even "bite-chu" the mascot my jr year. That put the desire in my heart. Years later, after always seeing pics and saying to myself "one day I will have one" I started working at my present job where two fellow employees owned eb. Judy was actually breeding hers and I said yes this is my opportunity. Her baby ended up having cancer and passed so that was out the window. Then Mary had one named Sadie who I loved and purchased another named Theo. She would bring pics in daily and I wanted one even more but really couldn't afford one. Then whatda ya know but a very close personal friend got one named LU and I knew I had to do whatever it takes to get my eb. I saved and searched and found the man who had Saban. I got Saban because of course I loved him but the man whom I got him from has a horrible operation going on. I paid only $400 for him and later found out he was 3/4 english 1/4 olde english, which didn't matter cuz he already had my heart. I knew I wanted another because I had a picture of what I wanted my eb to look like and Saban was totally opposite. The hubby and I browsed and found a breeder in Huntsville that had some pups and of course had a pup just like i wanted!!! So we wnet and picked him up on friday night and are head over hills in . He costed ALOT more than Saban, but worth every penny!
