Gigi2Gigi is my first girl, sent to me from Russia. I had been looking for a mate for my boy and found the most beautiful dogs to be Russian imports, but with a price tag included. Not less than $2800.00 Yikes! In due time I found a breeder in Russia. We made a deal for another dog and at the last minute that dog was sold twice in one day. The breeder felt terrible and ended up giving me her only dog, that was her own dog that she hand picked from a litter for herself.1-Gigi-4-months-2-300x287

Gigi was already in the show ring at 4 months getting”Best in Puppy”with a gold medal. Her father is a Grand Champion. I knew her genes were great. I took her nearly as a gift from the breeder. I cannot imagine myself giving up a dog I had already fallen in love with and committed myself to. I felt very lucky.And so I still am.

4Angel-Gigi-young-300x272I brought my little girl home to Angel about one year ago. We have a swimming pool, so here is their
fist picture together. It was like “love at first sight”. They slept together in the crate from day one., snoring together harmoniously. Although my dogs look actually quite different from each other, they each have physical traits that stand out as being special. Gigi has a perpetual baby face. The picture here to the right is “present ” day. She is pregnant in that picture. Notice how little she has actually changed. A baby that takes after her would have that same “baby face”. A puppy that takes after “Dad” would have a magnificent larger head that is most definitely not a baby face. Gigi also has smaller eyes.
