Hi from Dallas

Hi,

I just discovered this forum when I began my search for a puppy. We lost our sweet Heidi to cancer last month and miss her so much. Thankfully we have our silly Mandy to love on, along with our 2 cats.

I'm sorry you found us that way, seems like we have a lot of members come along in that manner. Heidi was a beautiful girl, thank you for posting her photos.... Although I know it is never the same, I'm glad you have Mandy there to help you through the grieving process... Glad you introduced yourself...

Welcome from northeast Dallas (Lake Highlands)! What area of town are you in? We have an active DFW contingent here!

I saw your post about DFW breeders and second Tahnee GR's recommendation of Judy Word. If she doesn't have a litter planned, she may be able to guide you to another reputable breeder who does.

We broadened our breeder search and brought home an adorable puppy last month from another forum member breeder from Pennsylvania; however, there are a lot of great Texas breeders as well.

Welcome from another Dallasite. I'm sorry for your loss. Many here have walked that path and I'm sure you'll find lots of support and friendship.

Keep us posted on your puppy search.

Thanks for the warm welcome and support! I wish I had found this site a long time ago.
We live north of Dallas in Allen, but I work in North Dallas.
I left a message for Judy Word so I hope to hear back from her.
