are willing or able to take care of him, it is sometimes possible to find a
puppy raiser in the area who can help. This is often a better choice anyway
as puppy raisers  know the rules.

would hold Gyro for me, they said reluctantly they would if I could find no
other option. I have to look into professional boarding kennels.

The lady at Seeing Eye sent me contact info for a person who had been to
Austria and Lithuania, to get details about his experiences, but he did not

Any comments would be appreciated.
