I know that I’ve already exhausted the Queen Maude joke to death but allow me to indulge in one more. Here she is, the cutest dog to ever live. LOVE!
We got Maude from a breeder in Stirling Ontario for too much money. I won’t be modest, she cost $2,400. The breeder claimed that none of her dogs have ever had any health problems. I doubt her claims. Maude is now 3 and has had two rounds of ring worms, almost died of mites and mange (which puppies contract from their mothers), had to have knee replacement surgery on both legs and now has epilepsy.
Anytime we’ve written to inform her (the breeder) about Maude’s health problems she responds with defensive, irrational excuses or feigns astonishment. I’m ashamed to admit that I might buy another dog from her.
