I am very new to the forum. I joined because my 15 yr. has bought every book that exist and has done tremendous research on this particular breed dog. I saw that you have not 1 but 2 bichons. We are looking to get 1 a bichon puppy and are not having much luck. She has said give us all the what fors and what nots on finding "Her" dog but we have not had much luck in our area.
