I got my brushes and combs from groomers-online, though there will be people on here who are much more expert than me who could tell you the best sort. I got a Groomers Pin Brush, a Groomers Slicker brush, a Karlie coarse comb and a greyhound combination comb. Seem very good quality.

The puppy pen looks gorgeous - there are probably much cheaper ones from some of the online pet stores (petplanet, petsathome, petsupermarket) but I don't suppose they'd be as nice as that one! Groomers do have a telephone number and email address on their website, so perhaps you could ask them if the size would be suitable. I think I emailed them with a query about something, and they did get back quite quickly.

Is there a mobile groomer in your area for when he is old enough to be clipped? Just wondered if that would be easier for you because of your mobility problems.

yeah they're is. She's further down I usually pass the sign she puts at the end of her road when I've gone down to the Asda on the scooter. I can't think of the name but it's something witty..lol! I know roughly where she is.

I'll probably find it on google somewhere, most businesses have a website now. if all else fails I'll send my sister-in-law down to follow the signs to her house and go ask her!!

Why would I need a greyhound comb for a poodle?? or have you also got a greyhound?..lol

I wondered the same thing. It was ages before I realised Greyhound was the company that originally made that style of comb...

Thanks fjm! Sorry for the confusion - it's just a type of comb.

No, I don't have a greyhound, though I'd love to be able to give a home to a retired racer, they're wonderful dogs.

Hope it all goes well today and Inca approves of little JJ!

As a small business I personally take checks & cash but I no longer will ever do Credit Cards. I have only had a few checks maybe 1x a year bounce & the owner has always come right by & squared up except for 1 person we had to track down for 2x before they came in & paid. That client has bounced 2 checks so I no longer except checks from that client. I had 1 client burn me by writing a check, declaring she knew it was good & then skipped town. So I was out $40.00. I have been robbed by the credit card company for more money than that. 2x now a client came in with the CC bill & the CC company charged them 2x for the same service. We had our records from the end of the day tally showing only 1 CC for services. All had been sent into the CC company showing proof that we only charged 1x for the service BUT the CC company would not pay use so I have had more than $100.00 taken from me by the CC company. I won't ever use a CC again. Would rather have a check with a valid drivers license.

I have never heard of a breeder bringing a puppy to you, though. You have thoroughly checked the breeder out?

As far as getting along with a current dog- that will take a number of weeks to work things out between them. You can't tell in one quick visit.
When I purchased Fallen, the breeder offered to have her brother drive him down to me for a small fee (gas money) and I paid for him in cash on the same day, got a receipt and all his papers
