Oh lord, I may hit you up on the offer to help with importing in a few years... never know! In the mean time, Sekrit's breeder is stud-shopping, and I'm deciding whether I'll litter raise, or send her to her breeder for a litter
One plus about sending her off, is then I'm not likely to come home with a puppy!! I am on the waitlist for a litter out of Sekrit's sire. I get 2nd pick girl, or 1st pick boy. I'm crossing fingers for a boy to show in UKC.
My problem with AKC show Poms isn't the hair. I can live with the hair, and they don't look so poofed when ungroomed. My issue is how "Puggy" their heads are getting, VERY unspitz-like, and IMO unhealthy. Crowded, and retained teeth, and other dental issues are common. I'm PROUD of my Poms with full dentition, no teething issues. How a Spitz SHOULD be, IMO. And without the overcrowding like some Poms, they don't have the dental hygiene issues common in Poms. Raw bones, and toys keep their teeth clean, like with my Cardigans.
