Thanks for responding Michael. We lost our first Lesser
Jardine's (Widget) to PPD and, now about a year later, are
ready to try again. As you say, breeder's are hard to find and
I've had no luck in Georgia. If you hear anything, or if it
waws possible to ship (though I'm uncertain about this), I'd
love to hear more. Thanks again! Steve.
