Happy birthday to 3 year old Pink & Blue puppies!

Happy birthday to 10 year old A-puppies! Wishes Merryhunter Anastasia with a big birthday bone.

Happy 9th birthday to A-litter!

Penny’s puppies were born 19.1.17. All puppies, 2 girls and 4 boys, are black. Available 2 boys for active homes!

Today was one of the hardest day in my breeding career. Merryhunter Caramelo ”Peppi” passed away suddenly. Life is so unfair and why the best ones have to leave us first. Last week all was normal and she has no signs of sickness. Symptoms were only few days and today she got diagnosis, which was acute leukemia. Prognosis was hopeless and hardest ever decicion had to make. We had to let her go over the rainbow bridge. Thank you Vilma and Pauli taking care of her so well during these years.
Run free Peppi! You left us too young and too soon! <3
