not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we
can be. ”

January- New kid in the block! Our Russian import  "Lord" (Gellent Hof Lord of the
Rings at Rubicon) is clear of all 4 genetic diseases: vWD, factor XI, DM and CMSD/PNA.
He is a such a great dog with the perfect friendly temperament, I can not be happier
with him.
