Welcome to Brinbella, a journey of life in cohabitation with our canine companions. You wont find many pictures of us - we aren't nearly as interesting as the dogs. Hopefully though, you will be entertained and enlightened by our escapades, which will keep you coming back for more. Sharing life with so many dogs is an adventure, and more fun than you can imagine. Siberians are clever, goofy, stubborn, independant, intelligent, and well, you never know what mischief they will create! But let's not forget how much fun the "non-siberians" can be too! Everybody is a member of the team!

Playtime! (it's always playtime!)
Chillin' on a summer day...
It's time to eat!!!
We live off a dirt road in a little New Hampshire town called Enfield.
We are part of a larger community that spreads around Dartmouth College
called the Upper Valley. A certain Yankee atmosphere permeates this
region and people who come to live here fall in love and stay or get
out as quick as they can. We have decided to stay. After nearly 8
years in the area, we are beginning to be accepted as locals. While
many people travel here to leaf peep in the fall, the people who live
here appreciate the beauty of the area every single day (outside of mud
& black fly season). When we drive around it is not uncommon for
us to still have our breath taken away by the natural beauty of the
hills and mountains that define the Upper Valley.
following pages, you will learn about our dogs and their antics. You
can also find out more information on canine massage therapy, mushing
life and sledding demonstrations, If you have questions, comments, or

Namesake Brinbella Kennel is named after the first dog we rescued, Lucy. Lucy's
coat was brindle (hence the "Brin") and she was beautiful ("bella").
While she was very sick on the inside, she was absolutely stunning on
the outside. Most people, including her vets, never knew that she was
critically ill. Despite her megaesophagus, she had incredible
structure, musculature, and personality. Her coat was shiny and she
didn't have any fat. We believed her to be a pit bull/ german shepherd
dog cross. She was a dominant dog that stood her ground, but didn't
intimidate other dogs or people unless they challenged her first. Her
instinct was to love and play. She was a natural sentry and protected
her territory, owners and three cats without any issues. She was
beautiful on the inside too – and it was through Lucy that we really
learned to love unconditionally. It is difficult to put into words the
relationship we had with her, but her death at 19 months was traumatic
for us. While it may sound incredible, it took us over a year to come
to terms the loss. We still mourn her today, but at least we can talk
about her without crying. It is with that amazing love, admiration,
and respect that we build relationships with the dogs of Brinbella,
never forgetting what Lucy taught us. Unconditional bounds of love.
