And now for something completely different ….

During an extended visit to my home province of Newfoundland, I spent a lot of time getting my ‘dog fix’ from my friends the Pike Family (Sweetiron Kennels), and developed quite a liking for one of their Beagles, Courtney, owned by eldest daughter Jacqueline.  When Courtney had her litter, a sweet little puppy bitch was offered up to me, knowing how much I adored the dam.  Our first Beagle, Ava, joined our family in December 2011. She is co-owned with Ron Drake and Jacqueline Pike.

While the Bullmastiff will always be “my” breed, I am thrilled to have Ava as a part of our pack and truly enjoy the dynamic she brings.

Ava was shown selectively in summer 2012, picking up some points towards her Championship and a BPIG.  She is taking some time off to mature and will hit the rings again in 2013.
