Should be bringing this little guy home, Thursday. He's only 6.5 hours from here. lol

Posted Image

He's a 12 week old, male, Tibetan Terrier.

The breeder is well known nationally, over the past 25 years. She owned the #1 TT Bitch 2015, 2016 ,Reserve Best in Show, Multiple Group Winning, Multiple Westminster and Eukanuba Invitee & AKC Silver Grand Champion, "RBIS GCHS Ivyglenn Caroline's The Last Shall Be First" She is retiring and this is her last litter.

It's been 4 years since our first TT, Shadow died. I never thought I would get another dog but here I am...

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Cute. How much did he cost, if you don't mind my asking?

Also, are show dogs genetically behaviorally exceptional, or mostly physically exceptional?
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

About the same a midrange Martin guitar. :lol2: More than most would probably want to spend on a dog. I bet a like quality purebred hunting dog would cost as much if not more.

We are getting him on a limited AKC spay/neuter and no show, contract. Otherwise the price would be much higher.

There is no dog show circuit in my future. I did that once, and had fun for a while, but it's expensive, and very time consuming.

That's the basic idea. Documented and regulated breeding programs that try to weed out genetic defects, diseases, etc. As far as behavior is concerned, that is mostly learned, but certain breeds are more likely, to have certain behavior and intelligence traits and those are also breed "targets."

No name yet. We like to get to know a dog and to try to match his name to his personality. It will probably take a few days to find his name.

Okay, it's Thursday. You promised you'd have him home on Thursday.

It's 6:30P on the East Coast, so you've still got some time . . .

:yelling: We expect a full report, Mister!

Long day driving 13 hour round trip to pick up the little guy from the breeder in southern Indiana.

Posted Image

He was perfect. No crying or whimpering. No peeing or otherwise! Slept about 60-70% of the ride home in my daughter's lap. A few attempts at exploring the car, which I think was him just wanting to stretch his legs.

So, 6.5 hours in the car and as soon as we got home, we let him walk around the yard and he peed. Ate a full 3/4 cup of food, drank a bowl of water. Daughter took him out about 20 minutes later to wait for him to go again. She was out there for at least 30 minutes and the mosquitoes were getting bad so she brought him in. He finished the bowl of water and proceeded to pee on the tile floor. lol As she was wiping that up, she failed to notice the "poop walk" and yep, he pooped on the tile floor. Totally expected with one so young. He is in his crate and in bed for the night. We expect some crying tonight as he used to share his crate with his brothers. First night away. We'll see how it goes...

What a little doll. I'll bet he's not the only one who sleeps deeply tonight. :)

Glad everything went successfully, Mark.

Did you drive in your Mercedes? I assume he wanted to evaluate the German engineering quality.
