View Full Version : Hi from Atlanta!

Hi there-

I am new to this! I have a 2 year old Blenheim named Oliver and I couldn't love him more than I do! He is the sweetest dog!

Before I got Oliver, I ran into a bad experience with a backyard breeder. I didn't know a lot about choosing a breeder at the time and ended up with a puppy who had a Grade 5 heart murmur who had to be put down 3 days after I got him! It was a horrible, sad experience.

Then I did my homework, found a fabulous breeder here in GA, and got the cutest, sweetest dog... Oliver!

I thought I had a pic on here- I will have to figure out what I did wrong!

Sorry to hear about your heart-wrenching BYB experience. That is just devastating.

Jealous you're in Atlanta for the show! Definitely go check it out! ... sounds like tons of fun!

Sure anyone can go along -- there may be a small admission charge; not sure how the shows work there.
