My very first litter was born in summer 2011 for my special girl Prada. Also the sire of litter is special - Minos which I have been following for few years. It was an honour to use Minos in breeding. I think he seemed to be perfect match with Prada - now we are waiting excited how the puppies will grow up. I had the possibility to meet Minos few times before mating. Also Prada met Minos few months before mating and they liked each other.

I didn't have any plan to keep or not to keep a puppy from the litter... so it was exciting to wait the birth and see puppies grow. Klara's character and looks made huge impression on me as well as many other people. So she was the answer. I didn't have the option to not to keep her at home. :-)
