I call them the Starks. Brienne isn’t really a Stark but I like her character in the Game of Thrones. Never much cared for Sansa, so in House Riverbottom, Brienne is a Stark, along with Bran, Arya and Catelyn. These Starks all get along, no wars at this Winterfell.
The Starks are from Monroe’s litter. I also have Robin and Chickadee, younger litermate sisters to July. There was a really good liter from July and Love. We raised Lincoln and Speedy, Pumpkin, Honey, Crystal and River from that litter. And Weather, Cloud and Windy from another litter, same cross.
Forest and Flair were puppies together. Same age, different litters. They just never hit it off. Oil and water, not peanut butter and jelly.
Can’t count how many littermates we have raised and trained together over the years. Lots. Way we have always done it.
Lots of folks have gotten littermates from us. More work raising two puppies at once, no question. Most beagle people, most people that get our puppies are the best! Most always it goes well.
The experts are always coming up with new stuff. Now they have discovered littermate syndrome. Guess I better tell the dogs 🙂
