Drove Dakota to the DFW airport. He flew to Philadelphia where he was picked up by Bob and Kathy Earls and then taken home (3 hour drive). After taking Dakota to the airport, the Garrett family (the breeder's) drove to Waco with the red male we tagged green. This was a half way point for Stephen and Ida who named the puppy Milo.
February 7, 2002 -
Colin Brauss and his brother, David Brauss, came out and chose from one of the two pups still available. With lots of help from his brother, Colin chose the red male tagged red white and blue. He was the smallest of the red males in the litter, but not by that much. Lillian and her son Donny came out and picked up their chosen pup. Took Dakota to vet's office to obtain health certificate for big trip on Sunday.
February 6, 2002 -
Sold two pups today. Both through e-mail exchanges and a couple of phone conversations. Lillian Bruce came out from Gunter, Texas to make sure the pups were as beautiful as the site made them look. She approved and will pick up the pup tagged red male with white collar (largest of the four still available) tomorrow. Bob Earls is in Pensylvania. Since Lillian beat him to the largest male, he chose the next largest in size identified as red male with no tag - very close in size. He will be joining Bob, his wife Kathy, and their 1 year old female Cheyenne. We will fly him out on Sunday. Informed his chosen name is Dakota.
