:wave: "arwen", I moved :sorcerer: your thread here ([Getting A Bichon] board).  Nothing you did wrong, don't worry......
this board is where all questions :question: about breeders, price, breed standards, registrations etc, are grouped. :thumbsup:


Like the others before me, I wouldn't :no2: buy my next puppy :pacifier: from Drako's :angel: breeder.  We always talk about how we don't regret getting our Bichons :wub:, even if we had got them from a pet store or a backyard breeder, because we didn't know any better then :ashamed:.  But going forward, you have the opportunity to make an informed decision :graduate: (based on research/homework and input from well-meaning Bichon-loving friends).

Drako :angel: will always live on in your heart :heart:, and I know how much you're missing him :cry:.  Getitng another Bichon no doubt will fill the void/emptiness that you're feeling :comfort:, and I'm all for you getting another.  Just not :no2: this breeder (my gut tells me).

PS: FYI, one of our members (Kathy) got her Bichon :fluff: (Snowy) from Bev.

Thanks for the link Mary Ellen, the location of that breeder is in the same province where my breeder is and i believed some of Drako's pedigree papers are from them they sound familiar I have to double check. I checked Drako's pedigree and he has 8 champion lines from his mom's and dad's side

I am also waiting to talk to another breeder from Whitby, Ontario, she shows her bichons, she also said that her pups have their eyes and legs certified.

No problem :original:.  And you can call me Del. :original:  What's your name? :original:  

Here are 2 photo threads posted by Cathy (I spelled her name wrongly :doh: this morning)
:arrow: It's a "Snowy" day today
:arrow: More Snowy pics





I am also waiting to talk to another breeder from Whitby, Ontario, she shows her bichons, she also said that her pups have their eyes and legs certified.
I think I know :nodding: which kennel you're talking about.  STARLIT BICHONS  right? :original:  
One of Bianca's (cyber) girlfriend :fluff: is a Starlit Bichon. :happy2:

Please call me Arwen  :wave:

And, yes I its Starlit Bichons , in Whitby Ontario. I also contacted via email, Heaven Bichon in Richmond, BC mentioned that she was recommended to me by a member of this forum. thanks Mary Ellen  :original:

Hubby still want me to get puppy from Drako's breeder, he have seen the pics sent to us and already inlove with the puppy even if its just a week old  :happy2: but, its okay i will keep her still on the list just in case nobody else interested to give me a puppy  :blush: and she seems pretty sorry when she learned Drako got pretty sick
I will keep everybody updated when i make up my mind. I really appreciate your inputs, I wish I had known this forum long time ago.

Oh thank you MaryEllen, its was so nice of you. I just talked to Mike, we are still waiting for Almaza to send me the pictures. Mike is not yet too convince because he wanted a wee puppy but I might get an almost 2 year old champion pup instead  :swing:

 :thankyou:

Wow!  I'd be thrilled!  That is great news because he'll get a wonderful home and you won't have to go through all that puppy stuff.  Two is a great age for training and bonding.  I know!  I have a nearly 2 year old and she is just about perfect...still puppyish and playful, but getting to be so well behaved.  I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures!  MaryEllen

I am still waiting for his pictures. Almaza said she can shipped him tomorrow if I want but I think I wont rush her, Its not yet really final but I think this boy is for me. You think he will adjust to us  still at that age? I hope he won't be too sad leaving his family. Oh I can only promise to give him all the spoiling he needed for sure.

Did you ever get to adopt a puppy at this age? I hope everything will work out well.

Hi Everyone, I was talking to Mike and he is not convinced that a 2yr old pup is for us.  :blush: I am so sorry for being so excited and even I told Almaza I would take her pup already. I have to call her in the morning and apologize. Hope she understands. Mike does not want to missed out on the puppyhood (potty training and all).

I hope Bev and Almaza will not be so mad at me. I will call both of them tomorrow.

That's so sweet.  As with all things, everyone has their preferences. :original:
No need to be sorry (and I'm sure Bev & her friend will understand :nodding:).
on your continued search for your baby boy :fluffcribB:.

Thanks again for the encouragement Del, Allison.  :thankyou:

Yeah Mike is a softie with our  :fluff: as well, he and Drako used to have a special bonding time, Drako would usually sucky mike into a car ride, they cruise around town after work and weekends.

Meanwhile, I have a couple phone calls to make :begging: :begging: i am hoping for a good news
