Short for Seraphim (Angelic being )
Note: Despite our attempts to avoid all problems, some occur. For any breeder to say they never have an issue (health or otherwise) should make you wonder. Sera had an undiscovered birth defect–a herniated diaphragm. It showed up during her first year of life. It is a very rare condition but when it occurs it can be of great concern. To clarify, we have never had one before or since. Nor do we know of any other breeder that had one. It is one of those things that can happen in rare situations. What it means for Sera is unclear. We will honor our guarantee as written. More than anything we are thrilled Sera continues to do well.
Stephanie Reports: Sera is doing well. We have not really had any issues healthwise with her. She does not have a lot of stamina but she paces herself and takes a break on her own if she gets overexerted. We used to worry about having an emergency with her but she does her own thing and keeps going so we don’t worry anymore. You would never know by watching her activities that anything was wrong with her.
She is very amusing and always looking for something to do. She is super easy to train and we take her with us on all our trips along with our other dog. She is great for road trips and is always ready to hop in the car with us. We enjoy her a great deal and all of our friends just love her personality. She can be quite stubborn – not sure if that is a breed thing or if she gets it from me – but she is fun!
Above is a photo of her with me on a camping trip near Mount St. Helens this past summer.
