My name is Robin Sternberg and I have owned berners since 2001. My
brother had purchased one and I fell madly in love. I did some research and
learned that they were not easy to acquire. I made many inquiries and finally
found a woman I could work with. My first berner didn't live a long a healthy
life. The rest of the litter is still alive. I was the unlucky owner and learned
how quickly they leave our side. I am still in contact with the breeder of my
first berner. She is a wonderful woman.
My second berner was my foundation bitch. She came from the Carma Que
kennel. Her official name was Carma Que's Star Dreaming Dazzler. She has
11 points toward her championship. She has one major and three major
reserves. I hope to have her finished by the end of 2008. Through Star I
have been able to start a breeding program. My first priority in any
breeding is temperament. My goals are to breed healthy, happy dogs with
long lives and good orthopedics. As we all know that is easier said than
done. I tried doing this with Stars breeding to Ch Great Lakes Guinness
Stout. Both Adriana and I decided to keep a puppy out of this special litter.
On the home page you will have seen my show prospect. Her official name
is Kohav's Boom Boom Avalanche.
Berners are like potato chips. You just can't have one. Prior to Stars'
breeding I was given the opportunity to co-own a berner out of two
magnificent specimens. Again, it was a Carma Que bitch. Unfortunately, she
had to be spayed for orthopedic issues. Her name was CarmaQue's TipToe
Thru The Garden. Crush has her CGC and received her first rally novice leg
at the 2006 specialty. I look forward to continuing in obedience with Crush.
I am currently a member of The Bernese Mountain Dog Club Of America
along with The Heart Of Michigan Bernese Mountain Dog Club. Through
these clubs I hope to learn as well as to contribute to the future of the breed I
love so much.
