To All Our Friends

The Puppies Leaving Home.

Hi Everyone Mino set off on his epic journey on Friday, to get the pups to the UK to join their families in their new homes. It’s a very long journey, especially for the puppies, very traumatic for them and stressful for all concerned. The puppies have been really hard work for both of us, and…
