    They went out of business last summer. I had an order in for 3 kennels, that were never delivered. Luckily, Visa refunded my money.

    I think people that know, what ENS is, and perform ENS are the same people that will (and do) spend a ton of time with the litter anyway. Is it the ENS, or just the "thorough" process of whelping and...
