Stormy at 13 weeks old
We did a lovely line-breeding to Ch River City's Vanilla Sky, which produced 10 puppies. They were all so similar, it was painful to decide which one to keep. We finally chose an outgoing and confident girl we named Ch Pacific Crest's Lightning Storm WS (Stormy). She has added new strength and enthusiasm to our team, and is a joy to live with.
