Thanks for your support. I am really wanting to find a dog. The house is so empty without her. Honestly I need a new dog so I don't dwell on Misty.
The first dog I got through this site was Nova. A breeder in Canada was closing down her kennel and she gave Nova to us. That was back in 2000.Nova got cancer and crossed over in 2003. Max was A GSD puppy, we bought. He caught blue tongue which ravaged our valley in Idaho in 2003. Over 50 dogs died that summer. Many deer, elk, and some cattle were also killed off that year. We had gotten Misty through this site just before Max passed over. We got Marty our English Springer Spaniel from a local rescue. My husband wanted a springer. Now I want another shepherd. My husband does too. The shepherd has to get along with Marty who is now blind. I know there is a dog for us.
By the way, the first time I came to this forum being very new to this kind of communication. My posting was not in good order. Well I was attacked aggressively by several members. Boy, was I turned off, hurt, and angry. We had just put Mindy to sleep, who was my all time baby, my own breeder line. Also Ginger (who was given to us by a breeder who was closing her kennel some times before) was put to sleep. I had a ruff time with losing my dogs in a few short years. Mindy was over 13, and Ginger was 12. i canceled my membership. I came back in 2003 and I got Misty who was in Idaho and needed a new home. I have to say, people seem to much more helpful and supportive here now.Thanks again for the support.
