The internet is a strange place! My condolences on the loss of your boy - we never have them long enough. If you feel that a reputable breeder is out of your range, then I would suggest looking at rescues. Some very lovely dogs in need of good homes come through them. You might want to let the forum know where you live so that we could make suggestions about where to look.Hello again,
I seem to have an apology of my own to make. I was reading back the thread above and saw on Ms. Fitzmar's reply the link to Joe Black Has Grove website which I failed to notice before when reading her message (mostly I was seeing "red"). I now opened the link and that is my precious boy Joe Black. I did not know he had descendancy, much less that he was being advertised on the web as a stud. My sweet boy was always so simple with me I had no idea. No wonder he loved the beach so much. Here I was thinking I had introduced him to it. In any case, I can see how the entire stirring began as his name came up and his website was accessed. I still don't know what exactly was wrong with the Erickson Breeders. I never got that answered. If someone would care to give me the particulars I would appreciate it. At this point it just becomes background information as to my precious boy, although much belated.
I do, however, sincerely apologize for all the confusion. Had I open the Joe Black's website when first provided by Ms. Fitzmar, it would have saved a lot of time, words and hurt feelings. Unfortunately, I was "seeing red" there for a while. Like I say in my previous post, we (I included) would do well to learn from our beloved pets to listen and love as well and humbly as they do.
It was both good and sad to see my baby's pictures. You have to admit he was BEAUTIFUL outside and he was so much more so inside.
