Tupac arrives in Israel
Tupac who was the red-collared boy from the Brier x Gabby litter arrived in his new home in Israel yesterday. Esther's brother contacted me over six months ago about getting a male for her. After much discussion and many emails with Esther and some delays about her visa to visit the US, she came over from Israel to meet us and to see the boy that I had picked out for her. She named him Tupac and spent an enhanted time with him on her visit to Surry. Tupac took to Esther immediately, gnawing on her nose and licking her face.
She and Tupac then visited Esther's brother in the upstate for 3 weeks during which time Tupac was housebroken, learned some obedience, picked up on clicker training, and generally made himself at home. I had several phone calls to tell me what a smart and wonderful boy he is.
After some tearful goodbyes, Esther and Tupac flew back to Tel Aviv on Tuesday and arrived on Wednesday morning. Tupac was a trooper and never made any messes in his crate during the long trip to his new home. He will continue with his work in obedience and will be shown in conformation. Tupac will have dual registration with the AKC and the Israeli Labrador Club. I feel as if I have made a great friend in Esther and her family. I'll look forward to hear of Tupac's escapades with his new friends and family.
Shalom and Be'hatzlacha!
