Our Journey came to an end this weekend, as all of the Nyx and Raffi puppies left for their forever homes.  It was a privilege to work with and form relationships with such wonderful families.  We know in our hearts that all of them are going to loving homes and will be a special part of each family.

With Gratitude;

Becky and Dan
