Friends Erik and Christy with the newest member of their family,
a black Russian terrier named Caffrey : Winterthur, CH
On Sunday, we were asked to go with friends Erik and Christy to Winterthur to visit a breeder of black Russian terriers. The breeder is Swiss-German and Erik was worried his military German wouldn't cut muster, so Maya and I went along to act as interpreters. The Russian terrier is a huge--and I mean HUGE--dog, but Erik and Christy wanted a large dog and that's what they're going to get in Caffrey. (They're name for the dog. Personally, I was trying to convince them to go with Attila Langley Tweety--an homage to the dog's size and a place name based on where Erik and Christy use to live.
It came down to two puppies and when this one picked up the roll of
toilet paper, Erik and Christy knew they'd found their pet!
