Between 5 and 6 hour one way drive. Made for a very long day. Plus we had made the trip three times, once to meet the breeder and her dogs, once to pick out our pup from the litter, and then one more time to pick up the puppy.

Gavin was flown from Michigan to Ontario, California, than it was an hour round trip for me to pick him up.

I had Rayne shipped, from Michigan to Texas. Only about an hour drive each way to the airport.

I'm exactly an hour's drive away from Juno's breeder. I've tried to keep in contact with her to let her know about Juno's progress, but she hasn't really responded or been all that interested, so I've given up.

About 30 mins one way. Shorter than that if you aren't being driven by a slow poke!

"How far are you from your breeder?"

No less than 150 feet, as mandated by the restraining order. I love you Chris, we're meant to be together.....

The breeder I just purchased my puppies from are only 40 minutes away. I got VERY VERY lucky. I was willing to drive out of state to Nevada or possibly far Northern Cali to get him. Being in Southern Cali, the Northern area is more than an 8 hour drive from me.
