A number of years ago we sold a puppy to Teppo Numminen, a former Winnipeg Jets hockey player. This Bichon Frise resides in Finland when he is not flying all over the world attending hockey games. He has always been a much loved pet. This was our only International connection...or so I thought!

MCA Shows have come and gone. We experienced the wettest shows ever! Since most of the shows were held outdoors grooming became a nightmare for full coated dogs. Having a white coat made things even more challenging.

Belle took Best of Breed/Puppy in Breed on Thursday, August 6th/09. Hugs won Best of Breed at the Group 6 Specialty and the All Breed ring on Friday, August 7th, 2009, while Belle won Best of Opposite and Best Puppy at the Specialty.
