Question of the month: Is the love for bostons hereditary in humans?

♦ Do you know these women "Anne & Anneli / Marjukka & Hannele / Satu & Sirpa / Aulikki & Eeva / Hele & Seija / Lise-Lott & Laila" . All of the have fallen in love with bostons and they are mothers and daughters. All of these have their own Miniblack's bostons ... Some of them have even more than one or two.
And we laughed so..
Veeti - the father and father's father - wishes all the fathers

Today it has happened. Veera is the oldest representative of your Miniblack's line. Many of our bostons have reached the age of 14, but never this 15.

Congratulations Sipe and Satu (the owners) for taking so good care of the Veera. It's been loved and well nurtured. Thanks for that!!

 Happy May Day !!!! Forever young - Miniblack's bostons'

Wallu / Waldemar is a good example of our offspring, which is happy with the bigger mates. The other good example of that is Wanita's boxers and our old one Veera ~ 14,5 years (The oldest member of Miniblack's stock at the moment) and young Lissu. The young-Selma in Sweden is also living happy together with Rottweilers.
