Scotland Pups Arriving April 1! 

Just in case you haven’t checked my site lately, I wanted you to know we will receive our Scotland pups on Tuesday.  Click on the picture above to go to my Scotland Pups Diary! 

Here is a note from Sharon, the breeder of the pups in Scotland. 

Everything fine this end, the girls have had their final vet check and we have the documentation ready.  They are being fed Eukanuba puppy food.  They are now on three feeds a day. I soften the food with warm water, and add a small amount of chicken to their feed just for taste. They love it. They are not fussy eaters as you will find.  I will be sad to see them go. I am a real softie. I believe in giving them the best start possible, and they have had lots of attention. You will see that they are happy little characters. They should soon settle in with you. I will email you as soon as we are back from the airport. It takes about an hour to get home.  I have just received the KC registration papers back in the post this morning. I will mail them to you on Monday.  The names allocated are Aspirino (my prefix) I'm A Delight and Aspirino Good Girl Remembered.

Please make sure to let me know when they arrive safely your end. It has been a real pleasure to keep in touch with you, and send you photos.

They will soon be with you.



We look forward to these great pedigreed pups to add to our breeding program.  Remember, you can check out the “Pedigree” page on my website to see the championship pedigrees that our females have, as well as our male stud.  We are still hopefully having litters in August, September, and October. 

NOTE:  Remember, if you are on my wait list and you change your mind, please let me know so I can move someone else up the list. 

It’s springtime in Mississippi.  The Dogwoods and the Azealeas are blooming and they are a site to see!
