  1. Thanks so much everyone. Will pass on for her to look at :)
  2. Wow, I havent been on DOL for such a long time! Posting for a good friend that has recently moved to Perth. She has a new pup and needs to go away for a few days. She is nervous about putting him in a kennel without a recommendation but doesn't know any doggie people in WA. She was just checking out this site http://perth.topdogminders.com Has anyone had any experience with them? I would love to hear any kennel recommendations anyone may have too. She lives in Cockburn but is willing to travel for somewhere great. Thanks!
  3. Thanks so much guys :D Fingers crossed someone has availability!
  4. A family member is going away over Christmas and has asked me for a recommendation. The place we use is full already so thought here would be the best place to ask. I imagine quite a lot of places will be booked up this close. She lives in Boronia but shes happy to travel a little if need be. Thanks
  5. Gorgeous Shell The colours are beautiful in that first shot.
  6. Thanks guys KK I hope your cheeky boys are well! Kirislin, I can only push my luck so far!
  7. Thanks guys :D Kja, they really are tolerant of us arent they?! CW EW I agree! A friend gave this description which made me laugh - 'Charche was planning a cup day filled with beer, bets and booty. But he's depressed and resigned now because his mrs on the left has decided to tag along, and she's planning a dignified time at the cup, and she'll keep her man in line' Madam had her own shoot too
  8. Well, I've been pretty crap at posting in here... so much so that I couldnt remember how to upload a photo! Thought I would share a pic from our cup day Hope yours is going better than theirs!
  9. Thanks I know nothing about Cockers but I can at tell at least tell him what I know about Staffords. If he gets one anything like mine he can run for champion title in the sooky awards
  10. Thanks for the advice everyone. It paid off I recieved an email this morning thanking me for the info. He had no idea about puppy farms and has called this morning and told them he wont be picking up his puppy. He said he's lost his deposit (only $50)and said he will consider it a contribution to the cause. He is going to let me help him find a pup through a reg breeder. Oh and he said he was originally looking at getting a Cocker Spaniel but he heard they were really sooky. Errrr... and you're thinking of getting a staffy?! Best I fill him in on that too.. :D
  11. Thanks I did mention that no registered/reputable breeders sell to pet shops. They want to see what homes their puppies are going to. I also mentioned the new laws. Good point about help for the life of the dog.
  12. Pers I have included the link in my email to him I also asked if he would consider a rescue.
  13. Ams he said he wants a pup. He wanted to get one from 8 weeks so he could train it. His words.
  14. Hello!! I havent posted in here for ages but thought this was my best bet! A guy I work with has just told me that he's put a deposit on a blue staffy and is picking him up on Friday. He put down $50 and is paying $2K. I asked where he was getting it from and he told me this place. I obviously screwed up my face as he asked what the problem was. I said its likely that they get their dogs from puppy farms and then went on to explain what they were. He said ok, if you can prove to me that they do I wont get it. Obviously impossible for me to give him actual proof but I think I can put him off enough. I called the store and asked where their dogs are from. I spoke to a young girl who said friends of the owners are 'breeders' and they get their staffy pups from them. I suspect they have the same answer no matter which breed you ask about. There are heaps on their website. I asked if there was a way to see the parents and she sort of mumbled about not really knowing... Has anyone had any dealings with these people or can share any bad reports with me? Anything else I can use to persuade him would be great. Im about to email http://www.wheredopuppiescomefrom.com.au/ He has also asked me to let him know where he should get one from if not here. He's set on getting a blue. Honestly Im not sure I should recommend where we got ours from. It was a long time ago and I didnt know anything about breeders/farms etc. They arent a farm but they do have a lot of pups available so I'm reluctant. I have also seen others that arent great quality. I know a lot of people here arent fans of blue breeders but if there is somewhere I can direct him other than this pet shop I would appreciate it. Thanks guys
