Re: Cancelled litter
I really did appreciate your thought and rereading my post, it could sound a bit naive/rosy-eyed, "OMG, my breeder is pulling a bait and switch scheme with a random Hungarian breeder. Isn't it great!?" I'm not as happy about the situation as I seemed. I had just heard the news and was trying to stay positive in light of the possibility that I wouldn't be getting a dog after all. My breeder only has one litter a year and won't have any next year. Anyway, so I appreciate your healthy dose of reality to make sure I'm thinking critically.
I also didn't mean to imply that these were quality dogs because they're from Hungary, though unlike with Vizslas, quality WHVs can be hard to come by in the States. I know these to be quality outside of my breeder's word alone. That doesn't mean all the good advice about selecting breeders goes out the window, very much the opposite, but there are some unique aspects to my situation and to the WHV. For the sake of guest readers I can comment more on those later. I don't think this needs to become a defense of this breeder, but I can list the steps I take.
Enough talk about a dog I don't have for now. Off to the woods with the one I do.
