Kelleyz Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo @ BK
It's easy to see how this little girl got her name. She charms everyone she meets with her sweet personality and confident attitude! Richard describes her as "cute wrapped in darling", I would add "smothered in adorable". Charm is our first Bernese Mountain Dog. We've been considering a second breed for a while and the list was short. I love big, sturdy dogs with full coats, but we wanted something that would be able to coexist well with the Akitas. Our short list included Leonbergers (we were THIS close Agi!) Samoyeds (I know I disappointed a whole crew of you- I still love you guys!!) and Tibetan Mastiffs but in the end, it was the disposition and overall joy of the Bernese breed that captured our hearts.
We haven't stopped smiling and laughing since she set her large yet dainty feet into the house. We're grateful to our friend Barbara Copeland for bringing this little bit of magic into our lives. Thank you!

*** Charm was diagnosed with IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) in December 2017. No apparent cause has been found despite screenings for internal bleeding, organ damage, toxicity, vaccine reactions and lymphoma. She continues to do well under her vet's expert care.
****Despite the best possible care and a dedicated team seeing to her every need, we lost Charm to complications from IMHA on January 19, 2018. Her decline was mercifully swift. We are forever grateful to our veterinarian Dr Blake and his staff for their love and compassion in our darkest hours. Her diagnostic information will be forwarded to BernerGard in the hopes it will help other owners, breeders and dogs in the future.
Rest well, beautiful girl, and be free in the Summerlands. We will see you again.
