Arrival Story: We had been looking into getting an OES for quite some time. All breeders in our area either did not return my call or had no litters planned. Just by chance I emailed a breeder in Santa Rosa. As it turned out she had a litter of three boys, all of which had been promised but one future owner had to back out due to illness. We drove to Santa Rosa the next day to meet the brothers. Nelson was the middle of the road type, not too laid back, not too rambunctious, and the only one with an all white irresistible face.
The rest is history!
