Private, Mindy is wildest of them all, especially
when it comes to hunting. She is so happy and really enjoying life,
also at the age of 11+. Mindy is such a sweet and cuddly girl and
both Nicklas and I have a softspot for her. She can really twist us
around her little finger.
Mindy left us in October

so much. it is almost unbearable..
