If Katerina's dad Vlady Palecek from Cernosice, Czech Republic could sponsor all our furry athletes, he would. So much he loves and trusts all of our four legged kids, many of which are also his past team members, or their relatives, children and grandchildren. So to be lucky enough to get chosen by him to be sponsored for the given season, is an honor. This year our wonderful and talented Granite was blessed to be sponosred for the first time in his life and is very thankful!
A definite favourite since his first days, Granite is the pick of the litter puppy from our "G" litter. He is adorable and charming sweetheart, who looks just like a teddy-bear.
Granite is quite independed, focussed and patient puppy -- give him an interesting toy and he´ll play with it all day long. He also loves to have his siblings try to steel it from him, with provoking them to chase him. Very self-aware, handsome young man! :)
