2006 → In April, after living together for nearly three years, Loren and Ianu became the parents of nine wonderful puppies, seven females and two males. This was the first known litter with both parents raised in Italy! As good fortune, love and fate would have it, I kept one of the females at the kennel. The name I chose for her was Hina (Bhina Tosakengolds). With her powerful muscles and dark muzzle, her mother's sweet temperament and red coat, her father's head and the balanced nature of both parents, she is simply fantastic!
