Now I know they're not all the same but why is it they tell you really important information when you needed it about 18 months ago?!! We wrote to our breeder just to tell him the problems we've had with Otto in case a) any of the litter had simillar problems and b) in case he bred again (although he had said this was his one and only litter) and to tell him in the 18 months we've had Otto he's cost us over £10,000. Now don't get me wrong I wouldn't change him for the world and I'm glad we got him as I don't think other people would have perservered or been as forgiving or had the operations but we got a tape reply from the breeder. It is a lovely message (apart from him referring that 'The Mexican man' may be able to help - took me a while to figure out who he was referring to!!) and then on the tape he says that when Otto was a pup he was the most alpha dog he had ever come across and Otto managed to get 11 pups and his mum away from the food. He's such a lovely bloke but if we'd known this it may have explained some of his behaviour, although after his operation he's a completely different dog but we would have done things alot different! Never mind!
