Hey All,

I'm a little worried here; I spoke with Hugh on Saturday and I had no problem with the price, he was looking into the cost of flying the little guy here as I mentioned and after three messages left, have not heard back from him, my boys are so excited it's all they can talk about. Any one know Hugh? I'd sure hate for this to fall through and break the news to my boys. We've already got a special place in the house for him and of course the security training lined up at the plant :-)

Anyone who talks with Hugh, please have him contact me again and give me an update.
I'm sure Hugh will get back to you soon. I know that he was going to have to start working some 12 hr days. Not sure what hours he's working though.

We both look forward to coming home and playing with him. He's getting to the stage now where he really, really wants to play! He meets other dogs and wants to play with them, but most want non of it. Bring your lab on by, Chester has meet 3 others with great results!

OK, Here come the bad news for some, good news for me
First off I cannot believe the power of OSO, second I apologize to the Board Gods, guess this should have been posted in the OT section. Guess I never thought about it until after you commented. Sorry, I will try and remmeber that section.
Next, I have to say I am KEEPING Teddy
After much deliberation, checking into flights and transportation issues for Dave Sunsation I came to the conclusion that we are to stay together.
It all came down today when I took him into the Vet for his Travel check up. The airlines require a health certificate to transport. So I made the appointement yesterday. Today I am talking to hte receptionist while waiting. We talk about my thoughts and she was real curious why I would be getting rid of Teddy after only 5 months of have him. She commented on how I was always so happy and "parent like" when ever I was in for his shots and care. We talked about my hour change at work and how I felt bad about leaving him for so long during hte day and not having enough time at night.
She started to tell me about day sitters or someone just to come over and walk him. Started to think about this and then she looked at my records and noticed she lives in the same Townhome association as me
We come to find out she only works from noon to 7pm.
We came to an agreement that she will stop by at 11am to walk and play with Teddy for 30-40 minutes 3 times a week.
This will give him some interaction and also keep his boredome down.

Now that final hard news.
This means that Dave Sunsation will not be getting his guard dog "Sunny"
I do apologize for this. Both to you and your children.
If anything ever changes you will be the first to contacted. That is if you can forgive me for this.

This is much nicer.

I feel bad for the kids, but I hope the lady from the vet keeps her promise.

Dave, my family is in the puppy business, so if I can help in anyway, let me know

I do too, to a certain extent.
Maybe Dave jumped the gun and told the kids after only a 10 minute conversation with me?
Never said he would absolutly get him.
Said I would look into transportion options.
I found transporting a live animal is not as easy as going to the airport and buying a ticket.
They require 24 hour reservations. Also a health certificate no older then 10 days.
Well that alone would not get it done with-in a week since I had to make a Vet appt and that was a 3 day wait. Options take time. Life takes time. I work 12-13 hour days. Its hard to take off work in the middle of the day for a vet appt. I lost 3 hours pay for this. NOt complaining, but maybe some need to realize just how hard it is to go through this.
Of course I could have gone over more options before posting him for sale. Live and learn from our troubles.
However, I do have to thank Dave because if he did not want to transport him by air I would have never gone to the vet yesterday and found a mid day sitter.
We all learn as life goes on, now I know that there are options for our four legged children
Last night I made some more calls. I find out that there are alot of dog sitter/walker companies in the Twin Cities.
Some are expensive, others are reasonable.
For some reason if my Vet Tech does not pan out, I have many many other options now.

Jumped the gun? If anything, you should not have posted your message to begin with. We both know when you asked me if I had any problem with the price I said not at all. Sure sounded like we had an agreement at that point other than exploring what frieght charges would be. Then when you did call me back and told me $180 to fly him in, I said no problem, then about a special crate, again no problem, then you say a girl at work wanted him and wanted to check with her again, then why the post to begin with. While I've not broken the news to my wife and kids I am disapointed in the way you posted with unclear intentions on your part.

Nontheless Hugh, Teddy sure seems like a great dog and if keeping him in your life makes your world a happier place, great and hope it goes for many years.

I'm sure I'll find another dog for the boys, wife and me.

The thing that I have not noticed in this discussion is what would have been best for the dog. Maybe it is time to sit back and look at it from his eyes. Dogs are pack animals and do not do well if left alone most of the time. The dog walker is a great idea but if you work 12 - 13 hours a day how much interaction is there? What is the possability that a year down the road you will decide that it is not working? A 5 month old pup will adjust to changes quicker then an adult. If he develops behavior problems, because of being left alone and not socialised, it will be very difficult to place him.

I am not saying that these things will happen and I am not trying to say that you shouldn't keep the pup. All I am saying is try to do what you think is best for the pup.

Dave-I know that the kids are going to be disappointed, and you are a little miffed. But don't you think Mn made the most polite about face that he could? I'm sure he regretted having to break the deal and he does make a direct apology to both you and your children.
