    @BrooklynStar I commend you, also. I learned so much about BYB from the boxer forum I was a member of that we *knew* #1. Not to go to a petstore to purchase a dog #2. We wanted a local breeder #3. I wanted a breeder that was going to ask *ME* a ton of questions before even letting me see a dog. That way I knew they cared about where their dog was going and who was taking care of him/her. You can learn a lot about a breeder even by what they don't do or say. We researched the hell out of the breeders we got Mona from and are elated with them.

    ^5 both of you!

    *red faced* Aww thanks everyone. Its a drop in the bucket really - and that's the saddest part of all.
    @BrooklynStar - John, have you ever told your and Dozer's entire story in detail here? Your tale is a testimony to two things; 1) do NOT buy Pet Store dogs and 2) with pawrent dedication (and a ton of money) poorly bred dogs' issues can be overcome. You've suffered a heap of heartbreak dealing with Dozer's issues. If there was some way to put all of that into a pill --- that a prospective pet store dog parent could take - there'd never be another pup sold from a pet shop ever.

    One of the things Uncle Fester mentioned was how devastating it would be to arrive at the airport to pick up a dead puppy (or two). I cannot imagine. I know a good many breeders fly pups places, but I am personally against that practice also. For all the "success" stories, I would bet there's far more devastatingly sad ones. Why take a chance, right? Why even leave a single moment to chance???

    Absolutely! (my "bulldog lectures" always come with an advertisement for EBN...)

    We did not, however, discuss the paranormal. What? Do you think I'm a nut or what? Don't answer that.

    I don't think I made one full complete post regarding our story up until this point, but I did make a blog post concerning my initial experience with him:

    http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...give-this-a-go!

    One day I will make another post filling in all the blanks from that one until present day, but that post will take quite a while to write up since much has happened since then :/

    @BrooklynStar - John, I hope that you do. Like Lisa says, "If it helps one dog, it was worth it."
