Bernese Mountain Dogs

I thought I’d post a couple of photos of Bernese Mountain Dogs. As many of you know, we (occasionally) breed, raise, train and show these wonderful dogs. They are a Swiss breed that is relatively new to the US, and becoming very popular. Stop by the cabin sometime when we are there and you can meet our eight!

Here is a photo of Millenia (ours) and Nick (our friend’s). They are brother and sister. We also own Daisy and Bode (not shown), who happen to be children of Millenia and Sailor (photos elsewhere on this site). It can get really confusing!

Sailor Wins 5-Point Major!

I’m posting this a little “after the fact”...but, this summer we went to several dog shows in Montana. We showed 6 times (Alex, Daisy, and Sailor). All the dogs did well, but no big wins until that very last day, when Sailor won a 5 point major. (Sometime soon I’ll explain what that means…but, trust me it is a really big deal!)

He won under a very prestigious and highly respected judge. Here is a photo:

Yes, Dogs can Nurse Kittens

When we got our kitten, eBay, (it is a long story), she was only 3 or 4 weeks old. She was ugly and scrawny….and, hungry. We had two dogs able to produce a little milk, Mira and Margaux. Here is a photo of Margaux, nursing eBay.

Training Dogs and Leading People

As you probably know, Lynne and I are very invested in breeding, raising, training and showing dogs. (Although, we’ve slowed down a lot recently.)

I’ve noticed that some of the key guidelines for training dogs, also apply to leading and managing people and organizations. Please don’t interpret this as an insult!
