I must write to you and tell you what a satisfying experience getting a puppy from EuroPuppy has been! I can't remember a time when an entire procedure has run so smoothly. Of course there was a bit of hesitation before I contacted you; I had been warned by several well-meaning friends that I didn't know what I might be getting into! Were they ever wrong!! First of all, I want to express my gratitude to you for my beautiful "Bella,"; and second, to let anyone reading this know that he or she should not have one moment's concern about writing EuroPuppy (and therefore, you) about purchasing what will become one of the greatest blessings ever.
You fully informed me of every aspect of this professional transaction, and any question I had was readily answered. The patience you exhibited in dealing with me (a woman of questionable decision-making abilities!) was exceptional and muchly appreciated. One look into my puppy's eyes that first day, and I knew everything was 'right.'
Uhhhh, Sandor, have you SEEN this puppy? She HAS to be the most magnificent animal I have ever laid eyes on. And as busy as you are, please find a minute to contact her breeders and tell them that I will wonder all my life how they EVER parted with her; and tell them never to worry one minute about her, because she will be treated and loved as though she were our child. She is not only beautiful, but she has the disposition of an angel. ALL that long flight, ALL that way from Budapest to Dallas and then four hours by car to San Marcos, and she NEVER whimpered or was restless. She made the trip in great shape; Lufthansa had evidently taken good care of her, for there was water and moistened food in her containers. On the way home, she played and she ate and she drank bottled water, and she slept! Course I was rubbing her tummy most of the time; maybe she was hypnotized. When we got home, I gave her a bath and then Bella and I, my husband and our four other bulldogs, went to bed for our first night together.
I have named "Be My Girl," 'Bella.' Be My Girl was a little long, and I KNOW she didn't know those three words in English! Bless her little heart: she looked at me as though to say, "What ARE you saying??" I found a list of Hungarian names on the internet and from all those I chose Bella: it seems to fit her well. Her owners must have really taken great care of her! She is in the BEST shape she could possibly be. She is beyond any description I could give you of her; and oh how I see why her owner wanted to increase her price . . . I would have, too! etween you and me, Sandor, I got a 'steal'; and now that I see her, I actually feel a little bad about it. I cannot wait to show her to my breeder friend; she didn't want me to get her (I'm sure you hear that all the time, from 'disbelievers' . . . ); she has an Italian import that she paid $8,000 for, and Bella is every bit as magnificent. Right now this little girl is playing with a couple of toys here under my feet; she is wagging her tail and wanting me to play . . . and you KNOW I will! It will mean so much to me if you can tell her former owners how much I love her already, and if I need to rock her all night until she gets used to 'everything new,' then rock her I will. And thank them for me for raising such a beautiful girl; I have the greatest admiration for them. I would really like to send a picture of her in about six months, if I could; could you pass it on to them? I want them to see 'where' she lives and plays, and I want them to KNOW that she is fine. Were I they, I would be crying my eyes out about now.
I took Bella to my veterinarian the day after she came into our home. After a thorough examination, Dr. House said that Bella was a perfect little dog; and rather than quarantine Bella, it might be better for me to quarantine my dogs so they would not make HER sick! Yes, I think it was mainly a joke, but . . . those words were strong validation of Bella's health. She NEVER had the slightest problem changing food or water; NEVER any digestion or elimination problems. She is full of energy and the very picture one would expect of a playful puppy. I would never tire of watching her dart in and out the 'doggy door' as she plays both outdoors and inside.
And, Sandor, that leaves . . . you. What a great job you have: you have a business that provides you a comfortable living (YES, you DO have to put up with people like me, and countless e-mails), but to have a business and KNOW that you provide so much pleasure for people has to be rewarding. I THANK YOU for making it possible for me to have this wonderful little creature; I will never forget your kindness.
My gratitude forever,
