October - This month brought us two litters. Our first litter was from Hettie who was mated to Wicani Rumours (Scandal).
On the 19th October Hettie delivered seven gorgeous babies. Sadly four babies died and we hand reared three - Stregato First Edition (Rory), Stregato Limited Addition (Coupar) and Stregato Gemelli Amore (Amy). Our second litter arrived the week later on the 26th October from Rhia who was mated to Imaginist Wrendition (Torin). Rhia gave us four gorgeos babies - Stregato Diamond in the Ruff (Finn), Stregato Highland Glenn (Mr Glenn), Stregato The Maleficent (Jolie) and Stregato Thistlewit (Missy).
November - This month was a mixture of emotions. The pups were thriving well. Tragically Wicani Cloudscape at Stregato (Brodie) suddenly died at the young age of two years old. This boy got us through some very hard times and we will miss him every day.
December - The pups are moving to their new homes this month. Every one of them have fantastic homes and we wish them all the very best for the future. Amy will stay here with us.
