Amy, He arrived just fine, not even an accident in his kennel. We feel perfect joy with his sweet little personality. Our kids are in fluffy Berner heaven, and our bulldog is pretty stoked to have a fluffy pal, they are running alongside each other. He is in good hands, thank you for raising him. His markings are just what I'd hoped for and he's just wonderful. Just so you know he'll be cared for, as my husband says "you don't love designer clothes or shoes but you baby your designer dogs."
