 After I had lost my beloved white greyhound, I contacted his breeders and asked for a new dog. Here he is - the sweetest puppy on earth. Words can't even begin to describe him, so I won't try. I'll just put up some pictures and enjoy living with him. Thank you Beathe and Ivar for letting me have him. He gave me back my smile.
