Our lovely gentleman & best friend Loui passed away on 25th May 2013.  His legacy lives on in the many puppies he sired and we would like to thank everyone for their very kind words about him & their lovely ‘Loui children’

Our beautiful girl Ella passed away on 26th April 2013, she has done so much for us at Berolee, giving us Loui, Rooney, and of course William passing down her wonderful line. We loved her so much.
On the same bittersweet day Queenie/Rooney puppies were born.
