28th October 2011 - At home "Willow Farm"

Sophia & Pepper’s puppies are born – only three ..... but they are very lovely, huge, cute & chunky girs!

 Mum is very proud of them, very sadly  their  daddy (Int.Ch Gatchells Man of Honour) is no longer around anymore,

 so in his honour we have called them 'Pepperosa', 'Pepperina', & 'Pepperella'.

We here at “Willow Farm” from the Hellacious Acres and the Ramchaines are very sad about that and say “be strong Charles and Marlene” in your loss of your much loved friend -
there are many super progeny around from him and he will not be forgotten!
