I got my first Bernese in 1987 - an import from Finland with lines from England and Switzerland. Her name was Ch. Bastin Rebecca - and what a bitch she was! Never ill, lived a long life and had a perfect mentality. With this wonderful girl my life-long fascination with the breed started. She gave us four litters and many champions. Most of all, she was an irreplaceable nanny to my four children. I still have Bastin Rebeccas lines, and her contribution to the breed can be felt in many countries in the world. Once a Bernese, always a Bernese. What a gift from Switzerland to the world!
