I really love what Mercy produces and I didn’t have anything from her so I had always intended to keep a bitch puppy from this litter but I really struggled choosing between Viva and her sister Vogue (pictured together below) so kept them both 'til they were 6 months old. When I took them to their first show I happened across Terry Carlton who was looking for a new pup to campaign after recently losing his beautiful Sh CH Starside Angelica at Wearstroll; Terry immediately fell for Vogue so my decision was made and I ended up keeping the naughty one!
Viva is the more boisterous and outgoing of the two and is really rather naughty, she reminds me much more of Spark in her character…always rushing around everywhere looking for something to do! She is a real little minx!
