AM/Can CH Risgae's Hershey's Kisses of Dalnavert-Luvit is back in Canada! Look for Huggs in the Special's ring in Canada in 2010. We also are looking forward to Huggs's first litter. Huggs was bred to Am/Can. Ch. Capichon Dalnavert Luvit Laine. This litter is due in mid March and will be the one to "watch" as this will be our "Omega Olympic" litter!

We enjoyed having Cruiser at our home. The Bichons liked to play a good game of “tag” with him in the family room, while Carisma the cat was happy that he was not interested in chasing her! Upon Brehdyn’s arrival , Cruiser became Brehdyn’s companion. Although Cruiser was big, he only exhibited a kind and gentle nature in Brehdyn’s presence, something we always respected him for. For us , Cruiser brought back many fond memories of our years in German Shepherds and with the GSDC of MB Inc.. Cruiser was all you could ask for in a Shepherd. He was one of the “good” ones!

Our condolences go out to Carolyne, Tyler, Brehdyn and Sigrid on the sudden passing of LINDAU’S CRUISE CONTROL. Cruiser was bred by Sigrid Appelt. Although Cruiser was with us for a short time, he proved to be a loving companion for Tyler, Carolyne and Brehdyn. He was a great show dog for Brian and Carolyne to work with. Shown sparingly, he quickly picked up 4 points. Cruiser was a sable with exceptional temperament, beautiful head, solid topline, and movement that exhibited a huge amount of drive and reach. Cruiser was sired by CH.

Winter has finally arrived, although moderately . After a month of above average temperatures , snow has fallen with the purpose of staying! It has been difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas , until today….December 6th the Feast of St. Nicholaus ! I remember as a child leaving my shoes or boots out by the back door on the 5th of December hoping that they would be filled with goodies come the following morning. This was a tradition we kept as our own children were growing up. Next year we will start again with our grandson ! ( He is too young this year.)
