I am glad that the CDC, which can't seem to help itself from shipping live anthrax and flesh eating bacteria around via pony express, at least is able to do something about the scourge of rabid puppies from Canada.
What would Brian Boitano do?
Well I just sent a deposit to Canada last week, so I guess I will lose it. I cant hold the breeder responsible he didnt know, I trust him when I asked if there were rules about shipping a pup over the border and he said just the clearances. I really dont want to start with a 4 month old pup so the search begins again
Where the heck is the AKC? Don't they realize many of these dogs are cross registered? Would seem to me that they would have at least ONE Lobbyist with enough sense to get to the right people in DC...

No worries I will re-fund everyone's deposits if I cant make this happen
What a shame this will be if this law holds.....WOW!
I can't imagine how many people on both sides of the border this will effect......
There has to be a way around this. If pushed, it seems like they should accept something along these lines: Sire and Dam have proof of vaccination, pups are born into a "Quarantine" situation at the breeders facility and are "Quarantined" for 8 weeks, then will be "Quarantined" at new owners home for 8 weeks.
Wonder what inspired this change? There has to be a way to find an exception for responsible breeders shipping pups. These aren't mongrels pups pulled off the streets of third world countries with non vaccinated parents.
Are you sure this is new? When I imported a pup 6 months ago, the CDC had the same requirement, but also listed an exemption for pups too young to have the vaccine. You had to sign a form saying you would quarantine the pup until the vaccine was given.
