Our Mentor

Bertha  Little


Bertha LittleIt is with great sadness we announce the passing of Bertha Little on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 of 662 Gondola Point Road, Quispamsis, New Brunswick. She was born March 20th, 1935 in Saskatchewan then moved to Southern Ontario as a teenager and in 1971 settled in New Brunswick which she considered to be her home. Bertha could and did accomplish anything she set her mind to do.

Bertha owned and operated the Paw Shoppe up to her passing. Her greatest enjoyment during her life was dogs and cats. In 1972 Bertha purchased her first pure bred dog which was a Dalmatian.

From there her love of the breed transcended from pet owner, to breeder, judging and dog showing both here in Canada and the USA. She was a valuable mentor for all new comers to the dog scene and is well known for her Beachcomber dogs. One of her last accomplishments was attaining the position of number 1 Dalmatian in the USA Breed with her most beloved “Daisy”.

Bertha was a lifetime member of the Canadian Kennel Club, New Brunswick Kennel Club and the Kennebecasis Obedience Club. Bertha will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.

It was Bertha’s wish that in her absence  “The Paw Shoppe” continue to provide quality care for our clients pets. That being said, we are open for business as usual. We look forward to serving all of our customers new and old.
