Sheephill, we say Schafhügel
In Paris "MayLea"
After a slight
chaotic travel from Georgia / USA Achim and MayLea arrived Wednesday
finally. Due to strike at Frankfurt Airport they had to stay in
Atlanta another 24 hours and than MayLea flew to Germany on the
seat beside Achim.
MayLea stayed all the time relaxed, liked to take a closer look
at Atlanta and won various 2- and 4-legged friends in the city
and at the airport. We really love the stable, not complicated
and friendly character of a lot of American Shelties.
welcomed MayLea friendly and 15 minutes after arrival she was
running happy in the garden:
so often in life plans change. We were waiting for a puppy from
another breeder, when we asked Joy Good in Georgia (Goodtime Shelties)
in February, whether we may use pictures of Spark for the litter
plan on our homepage. We instantly had a very nice Email conversation
and eventually we saw the pictures of her with 10 weeks on Joys
homepage and were blown away.
A lot of emails,
thorough genealogy and long talks later the decision was made:
Achim flies on 24th march to USA and picks that sweetie with 4
Lots of warm
thanks go to Dorina Lampe, Petra Tietze and Rabea Engel for all
advice and support. Also thanks to all those, who kept their fingers
crossed, who kept quite about our plans until they noticed that
everybody knows about it, because as usual Tanja could not keep
quite about ;).
instantly very comfortable with Joy and Bob: That were wonderful
day with very interesting talks and much fun.

first excursion with Achim: A real Southern Girl
stay at distance:
two nice and interesting days in Sylvania, Achim and MayLea, at
that time called Paris, started their travel. On the way to Atlanta
they received a sms from Lufthansa, that the flight was canceled.
Some exciting hours later, they had an assured seat on the plane
24 hours later. Achim stayed in Atlanta with Paris
at the Hilton ;) and explored with her the big city on
the next day.

cutie slept all the nine hours of the flight, only the last half
hours she slowly woke up, but cuddling with Achim makes her get
many thanks to Bob and Joy Good for this wonderful little girl
and the warm and pleasant welcome, Achim has enjoyed it very much!
