I started this website in 1999 shortly after losing my Bernese Mountain Dog, Samson, to T Cell Lymphosarcoma.

<Sam's story here> B-G Dog ID = 18963

Sunny then was pining, she had never been an only dog but we were so fortunate in being able to bring home a new Bernese Puppy, Simeon, to fill the empty space in our hearts.

So many good times, and then a new addition to our Gang with our Rescue Berner, Barney.

With great sadness, we were to lose Simmy in October 2004 to Malignant Histiocytosis shortly after his 5th birthday.
<RIP Simmy>


October 2005 and we brought home a new Longlease Berner pup a few weeks ago, wee Pixie Pup and Sunny's Great/Great Niece, life goes on here at Longlease
<Collecting wee Pixie Pup>

January 3rd 2006 and more heartache when we lost Grande Dame, Sunny, aged 11 yrs after a very brave fight
<RIP Sunny>


July 8th 2007 and we lost our Rescue Boy, Barney, aged 9 yrs after such a very brave fight with cancer, bronchial sarcinoma
<Barney's story here>


In May 2010 we had a wonderful new addition to our Gang with our new Berner Boy, Herb, with many thanks to June Miles for entrusting Herb to our care.

August 2011 and we have a new puppy, Ida, just 5 mths old, Herb's granddaughter.

Miss Pixie is now 6 yrs old, Herb is now 4 yrs old.

January 18th 2012 -With sadness we were to lose our gentle giant, Herb, to histiocytic disease
<Herb's story here>

The last thirteen years have been a time of such great happiness and so much fun though at times such very great sadness too. The pages below are a record of these years, enjoy and share.
