Introducing Zumi

Replacement Puppy is here.  Meet Zumi
Still has her puppy blue eyes!
Zumi is loud.  Loud with endurance.  I would rather potty training 50 puppies than deal with crate training one puppy.  But Pyra was horrible those first few days and she miraculously became good, so I have hope.  No sleep, but hope.

Apologies to Vito for having to train in a new puppy again.

Lance is still pouting but I know he will be happy soon enough for a puppy smaller than him.

I am looking forward to getting to know Zumi as she settles in.  And stops screaming.

Zumi is so cute and I LOVE the name!!!!! I hope she stops screaming soon. That is really annoying when crate training hehe.

I am sorry, but I have unsubscribed. There is no such thing as a replacement puppy or a replacement child.

It's actually a very common practice for reputable breeders to replace puppies that have hereditary faults such as hip dysplasia (I'm assuming that was the context that she made that remark in). When people go to a reputable breeder they are expecting to get a well bred puppy with no hereditary diseases, so if something crops up it's only right for them to get their money back or get a healthy puppy. The other puppy will find a nice pet home where she isn't expected to compete. It's not like she dumped her at a shelter or on a street. Also just to make it clear I believe in dogs being for life and I would never give up my dog no matter what happened to him, but I also don't judge other people and understand that if they have competition goals that they need a healthy puppy.

You're right Pam, there's no such thing as a replacement. I sometimes find that joking and referring to her my Mulligan puppy and such helps with the hard decision of having to give up Pyra. I am sorry you disagree with my decision, but I do not regret it as hard as it still is. Good bye.

I completely support your decision at least and I'm happy for you to have your new puppy. After everything you have been through with Vito I can totally understand not wanting to commit to another special needs dog (not insulting Vito as I share his anxiety problem!). Good luck with her!
