We took our new puppy to the vet today and found out he has an intestinal parasite. Although our vet said it was common and we shouldn't worry I feel soooo bad. We bought our papillon puppy at a pet store and I'm beginning to think all the really bad things i've read may have been true here. We love Mac to pieces and don't know how we'd live without him already. Thank goodness it can be taken care of with medication. We tried to find breeders in our state or close enough to be able to visit them in a weekend. I tried to contact 3 different breeders and none of them would get back to me. That is why we went to the pet store. How do you find a reputable breeder? We know we would like to get another puppy somewhere down the road but are a little bit worried about finding a good breeder. Mac says hi to all the other puppies out there.
