Hi all - new participant from Truckee, California. Truckee is a high-altitude location in the Sierra Nevada so I have practical experience with both raising dogs in the forest and cold weather. I have two RR's - Kerberos (male, 3y) and Scarlette (female, 5y). They are my second and third RR's in my life and I will never own another breed. Pic's are attached.
