Thank you. I do understand how expensive it is to raise a litter, and I have read that particular post. It was very informative. I guess it just shocks me each time I see the costs for a pet puppy. And some of them don't do all of the testing, either and yet still charge extremely high prices. One breeder that my husband spoke to said her pet puppies are $2500. Her show puppies are $3000. She doesn't test, she said she knows her lines. Yikes!
