J'appréciais déjà le père qui nous guidait gamins sur les stades de foot, la mère toujours souriante que je connais depuis toujours, et aussi la fille grâce à la course à pied. Et voilà que je découvre ce beau site qui décrit le charme du plateau et de l'éleveuse la plus sympa. Belle famille, bel élevage, bravo.
