Hocus-Pocus had no transitional problems in becoming a member of Jackie Green's family in England. The most traumatic event that happened to him was that Jackie learned that he didn't like black currant jam on his toast and he likes his toast only with butter. Hocus-Pocus is having a grand time playing with Jackie's other dog, Dazzle. Thank you Jackie for taking such good care of our boy!

We traveled to Crufts, obtaining second place in the open class and receiving the stud dog award. But best of all is that through the last years, our dogs [...]
The best of the best Bernese Mountain Dogs were at the Eukanuba Dog Show on December 5, 2010. The dogs were an impressive sight to see. At the show, Sorceress was awarded Best of Opposites! Sorceress has realized her biological clock is ticking, so she has given up her show career to hopefully have babies. Wizard received his US Championship at the Long Beach Dog Show on December 2, 2010. Wizard has had two litters. His last litter with Charm produced three show girls and one show boy out of eight puppies!
