Border Collie puppies available this March or June in around northwest Florida or north Louisiana?

I want a border collie but I’m waiting until the summer so that I will have time to spend with it and begin training and stuff without school getting in the way. Does anyone know if there will be puppies available at that time? I live 12 miles from destin florida and I travel to Louisiana in the summer with my parents so even from there would be good.

Below is a link to AKC Border Collie breeders. Just type in your zip code and select a radius.

AKC breeders usually sell "pet quality" puppies on spay/neuter contracts. Some AKC breeders charge over $1,000 for a "pet quality" specimen, which I think is a total ripoff, even if the litter does have champion bloodlines.

If you’re planning on spaying or neutering your new puppy, why not try adopting? Shelter dogs are generally up to date with shots and have already been spayed/neutered (but some shelters jump the gun and fix too young, so be careful).

What is the definition of Creoles, Mulattos, mixed Race People: Mixed Race and Mulatto Women of Beauty

At the Congress of Angostura in 1819, liberator Simon Bolivar was elected president of Venezuela and planned a strategy that would free the Americas of European domination.

He also found it necessary to clarify America’s racial heritage: “”It is impossible to say to which human family we belong.

The larger part of the Native population has disappeared, Europeans have mixed with the Indians and the Negroes, and Negroes have mixed with the Indians.

We were all born of one mother America, though our fathers had different origins, and we all have differently colored skins. This dissimilarity is of the greatest significance.”

   The 1920s estimate that a third of African Americans have Indian blood requires new research. Today just about every African-American family tree has an Indian branch.

The number of Afro-Americans with an Indian ancestor was once estimated at about one third of the total. In Latin America the percentage is much higher.

This means that an important page in history has been missing. Three great races – red, white, and black – built the Americas together. Their contributions and their interrelationships have filled libraries with scholarly studies, history texts, and novels.

New Year’s Eve Kicks Off Regular Musical Line-up in Newly Reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge

Tuesday through Saturday night entertainment starts January 2012 at Hotel Monteleone

New Orleans, LA – With the New Year comes a brand new line-up of fresh musical entertainment in the famous, newly reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge in the Hotel Monteleone. The nightly entertainment kicks off on New Year’s Eve at 9 p.m. with Luther Kent, a New Orleans jazz favorite, and includes well-known artists and newcomers on the scene every Tuesday through Saturday night in January and beyond.

All the musical entertainment is free and open to the public. The 2012 line-up features a rotation of well-known New Orleans artists, Hotel favorites and special guests including Robin Barnes & Band, the Luther Kent Quartet, Lena Prima & Band, Eudora Evans & Band and the George French Jazz Quartet. Of special note, it honors the Hotel’s past as Lena Prima’s father, Louis Prima, played regularly at the Hotel back in the mid-1960s.

The Carousel Bar’s new lounge area reopened on December 30 after undergoing a renovation, which included adding expansive windows along Royal Street, enhanced décor and a secondary stationery bar. The current furnishings in the bar and lounge are temporary and will be replaced with new furniture to complete the renovation.

“Because the Carousel Bar is such an iconic part of the Hotel Monteleone, we were very careful during the renovation process to enrich without detracting from the atmosphere that patrons love,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. “In addition to physical enhancements, we also focused on the Carousel Bar’s musical entertainment by welcoming industry veteran Marie Long to our team.”

Recently appointed director of entertainment for the Hotel Monteleone, Marie Long will be in charge of booking regular entertainment for the famous Carousel Bar and Lounge. With more than 36 years of experience in the music industry, Long has worked with national and local talents, including The DUKES of Dixieland, Chicago, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Tony Bennett, among others. Before forming Extravaganzas, Inc., her own music production company in 1992, Long worked with Pete Fountain Productions and Ray Bloch Productions.

“I’m ecstatic to be working with the Hotel to introduce a variety of entertainment into the newly renovated Carousel Lounge,” said Long. “We are featuring classic jazz artists and legendary R&B singers to brand new on-the-scene talent. We plan on celebrating music legends and creating new ones right here on the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets in the Carousel Bar and Lounge.”

How to travel with cat by car from California to Louisiana?


I moved 4 cats from Northern California to Houston for a friend. The others advice is right on track. If you cannot accomodate a small litterbox in the carrier, be sure to put pee pads in the carrier so your cat doesn’t have an accident and have to sit in it for hours.

Also, if you are not planning on driving all the way thru, make sure to check for pet friendly hotels along the way. I stayed at La Quintas and they did not require any kind of pet deposit as some hotels do. That way the cats had some time out of their carriers along the way.

Do NOT take them out of their carriers along the way. Some people may suggest taking them for a walk as a potty break. They’re not dogs. They aren’t going to go when you want them to and it’s going to freak them out.

Unless you’re cats are high strung (and one of the ones I transported was), tranquilizers are unnecessary. (We did not use meds on any of the cats I transported.)

How many hours does it take to travel by bus from Baton Rouge (Louisiana) to New York?


According to http://www.greyhound.com/home/ it takes about 32 hours. The round-trip fare is about $350.

Note that you can fly round-trip from New Orleans to New York/La Guardia for about $300 or from Baton Rouge to Newark for about $425.(including taxes & fees). Flying takes about 3 hours if it’s a non-stop flight, and 5 to 6 hours of traveling if you have to change planes somewhere.

How to become a legal resident in Louisiana, if I am a legal resident of California?

I am in the military and have been stationed in Louisiana for three years now, I believe I still am a resident of California, but how do i become a legal resident of Louisiana? I just recently brought my brother to Louisiana as well and I am trying to obtain legal residency states on him so that I can file for guardianship of him here instead of having to travel back to California.

Most states require only that you have lived there for a certain amount of time, usually 6 to 12 months, but that will apply to your brother as well. Also, many states have an exception allowing military members to file such actions in the state they currently reside in, but you shouldn’t need the exception having been there this long. The exception might keep you from having to wait for your brother to be there long enough though.

You will need to contact a LA licensed attorney to be sure. Most attorneys in military areas are familiar with these things already.

If you have no plans to move back to Cali, you might need to change your residency status to LA with the military, just to ward off anything that might pop that you have not thought of. You should be able to do that right now on your own.
