    DefaultI am in utter shock......

    We arrived home today with Rowan! She is doing really well..... my excitement was short lived by an email I rec'd from our breeder. I was so upset by it that I replied to the email but also contacted the lady who raised the litter (dam's owner) and ended up breaking down crying on the phone......

    we sprayed our shoes down twice and used disinfectant hand cleaner after being at a dogshow (which we went to ~ to meet the breeder to sign the paperwork.... then went to pick up our puppy. The email said how she was upset with us.. and another lady who was picking up as well (who had shown a dog and SHE didn't disinfect yet went into the yard anyway). Now she is freakin' out about Parvo. I thought we'd done a good job of disinfecting and had I been told otherwise......

    THEN......

    she mentioned the fact that Rowan was coming to a smoking home... and that the lady who raised the litter was concerned about that.. and that she (the breeder) was putting that as part of her questionairre. I responded saying that although my husband smokes he does NOT smoke in our home.... that is a smoke free environment... for many reasons... but one being.. my son has asthma, it stinks... I don't like it.... not to mention the other health concerns. I also mentioned that I was hurt by her email and that I hoped that it wouldn't jeapardize me getting another puppy from her kennel.

    I am so upset right now.....

    Wait, you got the email from the breeder? And she is the one you met at the dog show who knew you were going to pick up the puppy? And all this AFTER you got the puppy? I'm confused. In any event! Congrats on Rowan!!

    Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. That's not what you want to have happen on your first night home with your pup. Put it out of your mind for now; enjoy being home with your new bundle of joy!

    Congrats!

    Do we have pictures?

    I'm so sorry that you came home to that...that's terrible! You know that you are going to give Rowan a wonderful life and that you were being responsible by using disinfectant before picking up Rowan. Enjoy your new pup...I just saw her pic...what a cutie!

    All this was said via email?? Let me tell you about a handy little "pick me up"....DELETE.

    Delete those emails and forget about it. You have your puppy and that's all that matters....don't know why the lady is being so snarky after the fact...
