Star was a cute puppy

Star was such a cute baby - I can't believe she was ever that small though!


Hi Holly We definitely still have Star! Although that pink lead was bitten to pieces long ago. She is four now, and this year has been eventful for her as she ruptured her cruciate ligament. Thank goodness we had insurance as the surgery (TPLO) was very expensive. She is good as new now, and asleep on the sofa as a I type this. I hope your Star brings you the happiness ours has brought us.
Take care,
Julie xx

We have tried various things, but in the end we wipe her under eye area every day with something link Diamond Eyes, and trim off any really problem bits.
I love Bichons, but boy that coat needs a lot of work!
