The Younger Generation
As the years have passed, we've added youngsters and kept promising youngsters from litters along the way and now it's time that we share them with you.
The "It Kids", as we referred to Chance (now Ch. Mals Abouts Chance) and Pelu' (now Ch. Mals About Pelu'), arrived from Italy in August, 2000, and hit the ground running and haven't slowed down much since then.
The first few weeks Chance and Pelu spent getting to know the lay of the land as fast as they could go! As time went on, they turned their attention to stopping to look at the world around them.
In November, 2000, I made a trip to Italy to bring home their mother, Erica, and to visit Ezio Pagliarinni who so kindly sent two beautiful girls home with me. The "Wee Beasties" traveled across Italy and back home in my Sherpa bag, making friends all along the way.

The "Wee Beasties", as we referred to Bramble (now Ch. Bramble Del Subasio) and Barbie (now Ch. Barbara Del Subasio), became the darlings of the household.

By spring, the pups had nearly become the beautiful adults we had foreseen.

Tezz came home when her other "Mom", co-owner Ruth Adams, passed away in August, 2002. And who could forget Josie, the wild child, who, along with grandsons CJ and Cole, keeps life interesting.
