Best Choice Ever!

I just had to write! My sweet, little boy has been home with us for 10 days and he is quickly becoming the best decision I have made in years! The short version of my story goes something like this: I am newly disabled and was placed on a waiting list to receive a service dog. Meanwhile, I have grown weaker from the neuromuscular disease I have and am no longer able to attend the required 2 weeks of training at the out-of-town location for the service dog. My husband was anxious for me to have a companion and asked me to find an 'alternative' that I could have immediately. How could I refuse that offer!?! Being acquainted with the Coton De Tulear breed through a girlfriend, I began to search out breeders. I came upon Heartland Classics puppies on puppyfind and inquired about two of the puppies I saw there. In her very first correspondence to me, Barb sent me a very detailed email about both puppies and their parents, the breed, the veterinarian visits, her family-run breeding business, her love of the dogs, reference materials about the Coton, grooming, care, differences in gender, registration, etc. I appreciated her knowledge of both puppies I had asked about because it helped me make the decision as to which one would be the better fit for us. She knew her puppies and she knows the breed! By the way, my parents are adopting the other little guy! It's a win-win for everyone!! I LOVE my friend's Coton and knew him to be standard for the breed, but I did my homework anyway. Sure enough, they are everything I was looking for in my new bff. My Jimmy is no exception! When I first saw him at the airport, it was obvious he had been well taken care of. He's a robust, happy, healthy little guy with lots of puppy kisses for us! My veterinarian said he is in perfect health and was delighted with all the paperwork Barb included. He approved of the diet she had him on and didn't change a thing! He is an amazing addition to our household and became attached to me in the first 24 hours! (He's also doing great with our 2 cats!) I had never purchased a pet via the internet before, sight unseen; nor paid for one via Paypal before, nor had it shipped via Delta airlines before! But you know what? I wouldn't hesitate to do it again, not from Heartland Classics and Barb Lierman! I'm thinking this was the best choice ever!
