|A very special thanks to Jacques, the man in my life, for his patience toward our|
|ever growing furry family, for the nights interrupted by full bladder puppies, for |
his resilience to hair in his soup and specially for sharing and letting my passion
for animals be expressed to it’s full.
|Thanks to Mrs Danielle Gauthier de Varennes for her commitment and|
|determination in promoting respect toward animals and for her generosity while |
mentoring me through the apprenticeship of positive reinforcement methods.
|Thanks to Mr. And Mrs André and Aline Vézina from Élevage la Picardie for so|
|kindly opening their home to let me experience my first encounter with a Picardy |
Shepherd. This encounter was the turning point in my “Picardian” adventure.
|Many thanks to Miss Catherine Pautot, breeder and owner of “Des Mandarines|
|Bleues”, whom gave me the great privilege of becoming a true “Picardière” by |
letting me have my very first Picardy shepherd; Deva Des Mandarines Bleues.
