When You Least Expect It …
Through the service dog organization, April met Deanna Never of Swiss Run Swissys, and in 2015, one of Deanna’s puppies came to stay with us for a few months. The pup needed some time to mature, and Deanna thought we might have fun with her. “For a few months” turned into “forever,” and Deanna and April became co-owners of Swiss Run’s Fiddlehead “Fern.”
April and Fern began showing in conformation, and in a few months, Fern finished her championship. They went on to finish Fern’s Grand Championship, and by the end of 2016, Fern was the #3 Swissy in the National Owner-Handled Series.
Meanwhile, more Swissies joined our family!
And Then There Were Two Three
In early 2016, we welcomed Medley into our home, and she brought us full circle: her sire, Merlin, and dam, Tango, were two of the first Swissies we met.
We also added a second Merlin daughter in 2016 when pretty Kette joined our family. These three lovely girls were our starting point in the breed. Fern and Medley each produced some lovely puppies, and are now retired, along with Kette.
Our next generation is just getting started–Medley’s son, Tallis, along with our beautiful girl from Blue Hill Swissys, Flynn, produced a beautiful litter of 11 puppies in March. Fern’s daughter, Emilia, was bred to Dezzy (Dahlgren Swissies), and produced two stunning girls in February.
