Continuing the Connections. . .

Laura Bishop's first Leo, Nolan von Stutensee "Rip", came to her in 2002. This litter was a tough one for Waltraut as she had to nurse all but one through the dreaded parvovirus. Nockerl, who would later be the dam of Wal's R and T litters and is Tango's mother, was the only puppy that was not infected.

I am blessed that because of her love for Rip and her respect for Waltraut's dogs, Laura searched for connections to Leonbergers von Stutensee for her second Leo. In 2013, she brought home TippingPoint's Alexis "Lexi".
