Arrival Story:
Despite living in an apartment building in the Bronx, my parents bought Macushla shortly after their marriage in June 1965 from a very good breeder with an excellent reputation. As soon as I find the papers, I will add her lineage.

Why a pair of twentysomethings thought that they needed a dog in their apartment is beyond me but then I never understood why three years later when my mother was very pregnant with me, they decided to breed her. For the record, this move was the only thing that my parents ever admitted that they were stupid. Macushla had ten puppies including one who was born on the sidewalk outside of the building when my parents thought she was done. One of the puppies, Lainie, was given to my Aunt and Uncle in Philadelphia and lived a long life. The sidewalk puppy, Ilana, had a minor defect that kept her out of shows but made her a perfect dog for their friend who was a doctor. Ilana had a litter of puppies, including Maggie, who was sent to us on an airplane. Machushla died in 1980 at the age of 15 years. She was a remarkable dog and member of our family.
