Early in 1996 we heard that Mister Ko and Chill Will (Gr Ch Bearstar Ko
CD x Gr Ch Bearstar Chilean Willow) had a litter in Melbourne and the pick
boy had not yet found the right home.
We decided we were that home
and sent Cyndy (Ko's owner) off to Melbourne with strict instructions to
bring back a 'red boy with a good ridge and a good head'.
I think we
got more than we bargained for with Mr Doulen who has gone on to be one of
Australia's top RRs. A multi Best in Show and multi Best in
Specialty Show winner including awards for Best Gaited, Best Headed and
Best Ridged and with his children now following in his paw prints how
could we ask for anything more.
