If you would like to be added to the blog update list let me know!

I’ve  not yet decided if I will send out notices monthly or sooner.

The blog page is all new for me, so I am still learning as I go  ;-)

I'd like to be notified when new articles are added.

As of 2013 hobby breeders can no longer ship pets. All pets are placed face to face. We gladly meet our clients for a reasonable transport fee some place in the middle.  

Ask for more information.

We’ve stopped inviting strangers into our home.
