Yes, you definitely must feel good about your choice in breeders. And what is good for one, may not be good for another. Totally cool. I wish you the best of luck with this new pup/breeder! Can't wait to see pictures!

I'm just happy either way we'll hopefully be getting pictures of a puppy! Also, be happy it's not the Koolie on the plane, there would be no question of noise Just ask Sara what Zinga sounded like

Sooo may not be Koolie puppy but PUPPY all the same! PUPPY PUPPY PUPPY!!

Agreed!

My money is on border collie! I don't have anything to add about puppy on a plane but I'm excited for you, and glad you are comfortable with the decision you've made!

All I have to say about that is when I watched Zinga for a weekend right after she came home...I have NEVER heard those noises from any other dog EVER when she had to be crated in the car.

That's because she is actually demon spawn.

Can't wait to see puppy pics, no matter the breed

Pretty crappy for people to privately message poo-pooing breeder choices,though.

As opposed to what, letting her end up with a dog that she wouldn't like/had health problems/was the result of unethical breeding/ect? Give me a break!

I for one welcomed recommendations with open arms both for and against the breeders I had in question. I'm not afraid of my choice but I want to be fully informed and that includes information from people both for and against the breeder(s) in question.

Still, I can see why she hesitated. Finding a good Koolie breeder in some people's eyes is like finding a needle in a haystack. I like who I picked but it took some serious give and take (and lots of money) to find the right one.

It's unfair that someone who would have been a great addition to the breed was run off. It's easy to say you'll go ahead with it no matter what people say, but much harder to do when you don't know what kind of backlash you'll get.

I know how excited you were so I'm so happy that you have something else lined up! You're a great dog owner and I can't wait to see your puppy!
