Holiday Bernise Mountain Dogs, Carri Jones



" I am very sad to say we lost Secret on Monday December 22, 2014. She ended up contracting Peritonitis due to a possible puncture to her stomach or intestines due to something she ate. I fought hard to save her but lost the battle. This completely ripped my heart out as she was one of my very favorite dogs with her playful ways, sweet loving hugs, and beautiful confirmation. Secret you will be forever loved and will always have a special place in my heart~! Until we meet again......"

CH Jenda's Victoria's Secret v Holiday
Secret is a lovely once in a life time female who's mother, Jadis,  is one of the greatest Bitches in the USA~!   "Jadis" CH Jenda's Hail The Queen was the TOP Winning Conformation Bitch in 2009 and the All-Breed Top Winning Conformation Bitch in 2009.    As her owner Jeni West states, "Jadis walks on water in my book"  I totally agree Jeni she is the best~!   Jadis has amazing pedigree with combining some of the best kennels in the world... Jenda, Nashems, Prairiefires, Superfoot, Stokerbos and more~!   Jadis has solid Champions and International Champions in her pedigree. 

Secret's sire "Chunk" GCH CH Azure's Chunk Off The OL' Doc is a very large berner with Amazing bone, head, structure and what a sweet  heart~!   Chunk has some of the greats in his pedigree also with almost 4 generations of Champions.

Secret is a nice combination between her mother and her father.  She carries nice bone for a female, very pretty topline, amazing rear, amazing front, very pretty movement and a lovely temperament!   I am excited for Secret to start showing so she can strut her stuff~!  

Some fun facts about Secret... she is such a lap dog, absolutely darling and will curl up on your lap and sit there for hours:)   She talks to you when it comes time for feeding telling you she is hungry and hurry up, Secret will grab toys and run around and throw them in the air to get your attention and keep doing it and when you say "Secret what do you have"  Gives her more fuel for playing and showing off~!   Secret also loves to hunt.  She is quite the girl, I saw her catch a bird thru a fence and she had it by the feet, she didn't quite know what to do with it so finally let it go..LOL  

So again...very excited for Secret to go out and meet the world and start her show career soon~!
