Bernese Mountain Dog

Once again, I beg your patience. I'm never sure if I'm posting in the right place or the right way. (Plus, I can't spell for diddly!)

Here's the scoop. My niece and her husband would very much like a Bernese Mountain Dog. They have been doing a lot of research on the breed and are willing to learn what it takes to be the best dog parents they can. They own their home and know they would have to put up a fence. They have looked on Pet Finder and are interested in rescue. They have two rescue cats, one of whom was mauled by a dog so they are looking for a dog that is not cat agressive of course. Since I'm a Dane person, would some of you be willing to be in contact with them? I'd supply the email address via PM. I've also told them about this group (of really great people I might add).

Thanks!!!

Got it!!
Well,they're in luck!
Vilma Briggs, ThirdTyme Rescue in Ohio has young adults and pups right now looking for homes. She WILL require a fence. I believe Vilma runs this rescue privately, but she is a well respected trainer and an all around terrific dog person:

I'm happy to contact them directly, if you want to PM me their email address.

OH, I also love Willow! I think it's so cute how she just has white around her nose. Not that it matters, but is that considered a flaw? I noticed that yours all have a sort of a blaze on their faces rather than just the white around the nose.

I know! I keep thinking, "Gosh, if I was rich and didn't have to work and could stay home all the time with the dogs..."

Someday maybe I'll be mommy to a Berner!

Yes my heart is still aching for Christy. Those eyes just go right through me everytime I look at her. I want her so bad that I have her up as my background on the computer. Nothing better then a berner and a golden playing in the backyard.
