What lineage is he? Sanctuary Woods, High Chateau?
Cashmere Saint Bernard Kennels!
We purchased Charlie from a family in Snohomish...they have 3 adults...two breeding females and one stud. Lily and Ruby had litters of 11 and 12 within 2 weeks of one another! Twenty-three Saint Bernard puppies all racing towards us in their yard! What a sight! Anyway, we never did get papers for Charlie. The lady had AKC problems. However, we saw Lily's papers (Charlie's mother) and she is out of the Cashmere Saint Bernard Kennels.
Harley, our Saint who died Oct 2007, was purchased directly from Cashmere Saint Bernard Kennels!
And now I know what I loved about Charlie's face! It is so similar to Harley's!
And on top of it...I name him almost the same.
Here's old Harley. Such a pretty boy!
Here's old Harley, with the two hounds piled into his house for naps!
Such a patient boy!
Now, here's Charlie! The toy thief!
This stuffed animal IS NOT his toy! It belongs to Katie! But he loves to rip 'em up in 10 seconds or less!
Here's Charlie...waiting to sneak in! This is how he gets Katie's toys! The sliding door is open just 12" behind the curtain so that Katie (the Shih Tzu) can go in and out in the summer! So he sticks his big ole head in!
"Yeah, Charlie! I am still sitting here knitting, and yes...I see you,
so back off Big Boy!"
