All that love and devotion shine through — the mother of these puppies was a Crufts winner in her category last year, and all the pups were absolutely delightful. As are Luigi and Gigi themselves, who were super welcoming towards our couriers, Shane and Ryan. Shane told us: "Luigi and his family were outstanding. The place itself was 5 star and [...]
