It has always been in my thoughts to own a Bernese Mountain dog again. A few years ago, I started looking into it. I decided to go back to the place where the dog originated, Switzerland. After many hours on the Internet and numerous phone calls to Switzerland, I headed over there in June 2009.
I found a couple who have been breeding Bernese for 30 years. When I saw the mother of the puppies, I could tell she was a strong, nice female with an awesome temperament. I chose one of the female puppies, that is how we got our Wilma. She is a fun loving, easy going, all around great dog.
