(Sawyer at approx. 9 wks)
May 30, 2010.... the birth of a beautiful male Bernese Mountain Dog. Born in the Laurentians of Quebec, Canada, Sawyer was one of 10 puppies. His mom apparently weighed in around 100 lbs, while dad a whopping 130 lbs!

The timing to purchase a puppy was right for us (rather for me, not so much for other family members!). We found our boy through Kijiji and after much thought and discussion with the breeder, we took the plunge. Sawyer graced our doorstep on August 6th, 2010, a day before our daughter's birthday. She couldn't ask for a better gift!
Upon Sawyer's arrival, he was greeted by his current best buddy, Hurley, another BMD (Bernese Mountain Dog). Hurley showed much restraint and patience with this new puppy and continue a lovely friendship.
