Additional Information & Links 

        I spent a long time trying to figure out a way to add in all the information I wanted to put out there to prospective puppy owners, and I just couldn’t fit it all on the page without it becoming a book. So here are some of the short articles I’ve written on some of the topics that are near and dear to my heart, and also some of my favourite links, products, specialty shops, and breeders I know and trust.
