Sadly, as her sire Boris developed epilepsy, "Myka" (Tanje Marionette) was not destined to be bred from which is a shame as she carried some beautiful lines. (Tanje)
Disappointments I feel fall into two categories. The most serious for me was that the breed became a victim of epilepsy although many breeders try their best to combat this dreadful disease I feel they will never succeed as some breeders, Continental and British, have not been honest and it can unknowinly be introduced into previously clear lines.
