We got our first Bernese in 1995, Tessa (pictured above). She was to become the start of something great. In August of 2018 Rika passed away. Rika was a fifth generation granddaughter of Tessa. Rika was also the last Bernese that was a part of our immediate family. Over the years there were many great dogs and lots of wonderful puppies, Berners, Dachsunds and Papillons.
As the years went by our family continued to grow and change. At the start of 2019 our family consist of myself, 4 wonderful children and many loved and loving animals. We now have 5 dogs, many Heritage Chickens and Turkeys, Muscovy Ducks, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 3 small Parrots, some Bunnies and Goldfish.
We love our dogs, and other pets, and I will always have dogs in my life. It has been a very hard and emotional decision to make but I have decided to no longer breed dogs.
I will continue to be a part of the dog community. I am still a member of the BMDCC and a member of the Rescue Committee. We offer dog boarding in our home. I'm also always happy to help someone that has one of our puppies or just needs some advise regarding caring for, training or finding a new dog for their family.
Thanks to all of you who loved our dogs and puppies. For now there are no more litters in our future... but never say never...
