I have a Prairiwind dog also~ my story may not be the best story so you may want to skip it...lol~!
I find Linda's personality to be a bit standoff-ish. She doesn't have the best "bedside" manner. She can be rude. She has never once emailed me to ask how Daisy is doing. I think she is a bit too "business-like" for me. I think she puts alot of her dog breeding effort into the show dogs, not so much the "pets". But this is only my opinion.
Daisy was flown to me on a super stormy day in Feb. She arrived soaking wet and shaking. We took her home and warmed her up...took her to the vet the next day and she had dual ear infections and coccidia (diarrhea). She was tiny and scared. She hated her crate for weeks after we brought her home. She would whine yelp and scream. But we stuck with it and was successfully crate trained. She has horrible seperation anxiety, even today at over 4 years old~ She hates to be alone, and freaks out if I am out in the front yard without her. She has a very high pitched yelp and she lets me know she is not happy!!! She is tiny, only 7 3/4 lbs but does have a thick coat. It isn't silky at all. It's soft, but also frizzy toward her butt. It was a nightmare to take care of as a puppy, it matted terrible and she hates to be groomed. I kept her in a short puppy cut, but I did grow it out last year. I cut her in a puppy cut again last fall. Oh, she too was pitch black and white as a puppy, but has really faded out to a stunning silver and white color.
BUT.........even with all that.... she is a great little dog! So very sweet and such a lap dog. She loves to go for rides in the car. She was one of my easier to housetrain. She was completely reliable at 4 months old. She doesn't have any accidents in the house, even when it's raining! ( I can't say the same for my other dogs...grrrr!!) She loves to play with the babies when we have puppies in the house. She is a great addition to our family~~
I think the most important thing is that you love your puppy (which I am sure you do!) I hope the flight goes smoothly and you will soon have a sweet baby in your arms!
ps, Jamocha is Daisy's daddy too!!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
