I am sorry to hear about Pia,  I was privileged and honoured to meet her.  Each Bernese has so many different characters, and each memory stays with us for ever. Marigold Murray (Scotland)


Hi Ian and Jill. We have just read about the sad loss of Pia, we are truly devastated for you, she was a very special dog and you would never have known she was blind, but her confidence obviously came from how she was handled and treated by the both of you. As with the other dogs, she was a true example of what you told us when we first met you 10 years ago, that your dogs are first and foremost family members. There can't have been a better example of this than Pia. Rest in peace Pia xx Ade, Jude and boys. (St. Helens, owners of Zak, our Litter 9)

To Ian and Jill. Very sorry to hear the sad news about Pia. We hope you both take comfort from knowing that she had a wonderful life with you both. Thinking of you and Sonny sends a big hug. Fennella, Mathew, Daniel and Bridie. (Penarth, Wales - owners of Sonny, our Litter 10)



Hi. I just saw on your site about beautiful Pia. We are so sorry for your loss, I'm shedding a tear myself. I will never forget coming to you for the first time to meet Kira at 6 weeks and Pia being a pup and her chewing my bag and my shoes (which were on my feet ) she really was a special girl. Thank you for our card, it was very lovely of you to send it. We're sorry again and sending you all lots of hugs. Clare and Simon xx (Milton Keynes)
