Hope she enjoyed it...a very pristine, primitive beauty to Iceland. We brought back an Icelandic sheepdog with us....brilliant animal...stubborn as a mule....out-thought us each and every day for 13 years. :)He died 3 years ago and we missed him so much we searched out a rare breeder in the States (Michigan), and got a magnificent little boy.
