Congratulations on your new additions. In time your will be able to complete your collection. Someone will be selling the one you need and you will get it. You just have to be patient. There are several things I am waiting on and eventually I will end up with them as well.

Chin up, Wildheart. Christophe has a good attitude about this. I can tell you that in the last six months:
(a) received small lot with broken-legged animal due to improper packing - seller ignored my e-mail,
(b) received three very rare dolly dolls, but one with leg broken in half, again due to improper packing - seller said "too bad, I give you discount next time" but seller has no other Schleich to offer,
(c) won and paid for Pterodactyl pluschie, but package never arrived,
(d) received empty and torn package (no padding whatsoever!!! in flat mailer), so no baby hippo or female gorilla,
(e) waiting for return package in trade from UK that is now a good ten days late (but I'm pretty sure it will arrive someday).

So, all in all, that's at least 70 euros spent with NOTHING to show for it. In other words, you're not alone!!! At least you're in the continental EU, as it is much more problematic to collect rare Schleich (and other non-USA lines) from the USA, not to mention the many payment and shipping issues we American collectors have to manage.

I lost a Schleich orca from a win at ebay Germany some long time ago, it never showed up after paying for it, although it was not very expensive anyway.
And i lost a Britains lead pig here in Holland, which never arrived either...
And i had some damaged items too in the past, shit happens...
But i must say, that i always ask the seller to ship without insurance, or the price for that must not be very much higher then normal shipment.
I guess most of us have those bad experiences, which seems normal when you do buy a lot in the internet, and are dependable by the postal services... Sad

My favourites under the new dogs are the great danes too!
Although the pugs are sweet too.
I still have some problems with the name great "Dane"...
I know the Germans imported the early types of this dog around 1870 from Denmark, and perfected the race to what it is today with the inbreed of greyhounds, to make them more elegant.
So the ones we see today should be called German dogge actually... Laughing
But as an extra, even before that, these type of dogs came from the middle-east to England and Ireland, where they cross-bred these M.E. types with the English bulldog and the Irish wolfhound.
Well, the struggle about the real good name for this fantastic dog will go on i think... Shocked

Thank you both.I still have one Papo left,2 Schleich sets and the Satchmo!
I was also confused with the names.Many dog magazines in Romania(or even real people)called them Deutsche Dogge.I prefer using the Great Dane term.I don't know why! confused
