Huge thanks go out to Cheryle for trusting me with this special boy.  The first time I saw Pauly's sire Kaden, I was smitten and determined to one day have a puppy by him. I couldn't have asked for a better combination than Cheryle's Alexus. She is a typey girl with a strong muzzle and flat broad skull while still appearing feminine.  She has sturdy bone, correct movement and beautiful thick shiny coat.  It was a lovely litter and the pedigree has exceptional longevity.  Pauly has the ideal Berner temperament.  He is confident, kind and pure joy every single day.  He is full of life, loves to socialize, learn new things and has endurance to work. 


Outside of a few practice shows we started seriously showing in June of 2018 entering one weekend a month and he finished in February of 2019.  He placed or won at nearly every show including a Best of Breed from the classes in a very nice entry, a reserve win at a regional specialty and 4 times second place in classes of 6 at the IL and MI regional specialty shows.  He won or placed under breed and all breed judges in states all over the midwest and south. 


Pauly has a beautiful balanced side gait with good reach and drive.  He has correct foot timing.  His masculine head with a broad flat skull and strong muzzle are complimented with an animated gentle expression.  He has a very soft and shiny slightly wavy coat, lovely length of neck, correct tail set and croup, sturdy bone and good topline.

When Cheryle told me she was going to breed Gabby to Shamu in 2020 I quickly started researching this pedigree as I had a few friends looking for a puppy.  I knew Gabby's pedigree well and that the longevity was exceptional.  After completing my research I was impressed to see Shamu also has a pedigree with exceptional longevity.  I was sad that I wasn't ready for a puppy but thrilled I could refer a few friends to Cheryle.  Sadly, Gabby didn't get pregnant.  Cheryle decided to try again and this time I was in a place to have another puppy.  After my research I decided I wanted a bitch to hopefully start my breeding program with.  Gabby had other plans as she gave birth to a singleton boy.  My heart said you need that puppy with the first photo I saw, but I really wanted a girl.   I prayed and the answer I received was if Cheryle isn't keeping him and he passes show potential evaluation then he is meant to be and a girl will come later.  Long story short DJ has given much happiness to me after a very hard 5 years in this breed.  My journey is different than most.  I do things different than nearly everyone.  Longevity is important to me.  Health is important to me.   Temperament is important to me.  Raising dogs naturally is important to me.  While winning is important to me I will not sacrifice the prior mentioned things for ribbons.  I have gained the courage and guts to do what is right regardless of what anyone else thinks or says "the road less traveled"

DJ has a broad flat skull with a gentle animated expression.  He has tight flews and correct eye shape.  He has a beautiful balanced side gait with excellent reach and drive.  His front is clean and his shoulder lay back is very good.  He has a good topline and lovely length of neck.  He has very sturdy bone.

DJ has the ideal temperament.  He is confident and good natured and very smart.

Camden is 26 inches tall and a muscular 118 lbs

Cam Cam Muffin Man.  He got that name because he had one of the best fuzzy puppy heads which is no surprise as he grew a very thick adult coat.  Camden is a very easy going dog and loves attention.  There is never enough cuddle time for Cam.  His favorite part of dog shows was laying on his grooming table and waiting for people to come pet him.  I hope to show him in veterans in a few regional specialties.  

Camden has sturdy bone, thick straight coat, strong muzzle, elbows well set under his shoulder and a deep chest.  His movement is clean coming and going.
