After we lost our precious, Tiponi, the sweetest girl on earth, I knew I had to start looking for a puppy. Takee can literally grieve himself to death. And we are all trying to help each other through this.
In a later post I will tell you about the commotion caused by Takee howling 24/7 for 7 days and counting.
But this post, it is about looking for puppies on the internet. Of course, I did searches for the same breed, a Kugsha. Search that one some time. You will come up with (1) my website: www.kugsha.com (2) a bunch of websites showing what looks like wolves or wolf-hybrids; (3) everything in between.
I could sit and tell you the whole background of the Kugsha, and go on about the information, but will save that too for another time.
I have searched for Kugsha, nothing. I figured that since Kugsha predate the huskies and malamutes, and get a lot bigger, that I should search for Giant Malamutes. Yea, right, in Georgia. So I searched for everything that I have ever thought looked similar to a Kugsha. Everything I find, ends up being illegal to own in GA. But ya know…. now they are breeding dogs with the specific purpose that they look like a wolf, and are still dogs, and a lot of them look similar to a Kugsha. I even found a few in GA, TN, NC, SC and AL. But, much like the Kugsha, many of them only go into heat once a year, and alot of those breeders are selling as wolf-hybrids, because they do look like wolves.
Georgia is just screwed up. All the states around us, since these people sell these wolfie-looking dogs, and get a lot of money for them ($1000-$5000 a pup, they claim) selling them as hybrids, they won’t sale one to somebody in GA. So, just what am I expected to do? What pay more for the dog, than I did the car I drive?
The other problem is, not being able to find any available pups of any breed that will get big enough to hang out with Waptakee, I checked with Craigslist. Like everyone already knows that you can’t trust the sellers on Craigslist. This one woman, living in GA, wanted me to make a reservation to see her female pup. That’s fine. The drawback? You have to pay the woman $400 to make the reservation. She said it will go toward the price of the pup, and if you don’t take the pup, you get the money back. Do I look like I feel off the friggin turnip truck yesterday? The only pup in the whole state, and she wants to pull that off. There are no pictures on the internet or anywhere else of this puppy. Then she said that she would have to take off work to meet me. Meet me where? She wants to meet someplace for me to see a puppy that has no pictures, AFTER I send her $400 through Zelle?
I have some property up on the top of Stone Mountain that I am selling too. Please, give me a break!
So my puppy search is going to take a lot longer than I planned…..
