I had been looking for a blue merle Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppy for quite some time when Betty Seely, owner of Pecan Valley Corgis, called me to tell me that she had a puppy for me. Pecan Valley is in Arkansas and I am in Ohio. Usually, puppies fly to their new homes, but it was too late in the year (June), and too hot for puppies to fly in the cargo hold of a plane. I had to find a ride for my new puppy, "Idgie Threadgoode". I went to the provider of all information (the Internet) and found uShip. I read the reviews and listed my puppy transport for bid. I received several bids, but I selected KINDLE to do the job. KINDLE was staffed by a veterinary technician and was a female-run operation which transports rescued animals to their new homes. The price of the transport was comparable to an airline transport. The time came and "Idgie" was picked up at Pecan Valley Corgis. I had spoken with the breeder earlier and we agreed together that if there was anything questionable about the transporter, that she would not send the puppy. Not to worry...KINDLE passed the inspection of a careful breeder and "Idgie" began her ride to her new home. KINDLE called me about every three hours to fill me in on the progress of the journey and their cross-country activities. By the time "Idgie" arrived at my door,I felt as if I had known KINDLE for years. I would not hesitate to use KINDLE again, and Pecan Valley Corgis will also be using KINDLE to transport her dogs and puppies to their new homes. KINDLE did a great job, and I won't hesitate to recommend her to others. This was a great experience with uShip. If I had a scanner, I would have sent a picture of "Idgie" at her new home in Ohio. She is currently losing the Arkansas "drawl" in her bark ,(or should I say, yipe) and acquiring a mid-western, non-accented Ohio speech affect. Oh, by the way, KINDLE'S real name is Liz. Thanks uShip. Cherie Bryce and Idgie
