April 17th: Shadow is TWELVE!!!. Here's a wonderful note from Shadow's Mom.
Shadow greets each day with her bright, brown eyes, her tail wagging with enthusiasm and anticipation. Each event of the day - breakfast, a walk, grooming, training or play time is met with the same, upbeat attitude.
Over the years, many awards and achievements have come Shadow's way: American Bouvier des Flandres Club Versatility Champion, American Kennel Club Breed Champion, obedience Highs-in-Trial, titles in freestyle, agility, herding, rally, back packing, carting, tracking, pictures in Clean Run, cover girl for Dog Fancy magazine, numerous calendar appearances and Animal Planet breed representative. These recognitions are a testament to Shadow's conformation, energy, cooperation and drive.
But, Shadow's most precious title is Best Friend! All of her competitive success cannot compare to the joy she brings to us each day.
At 12, Shadow still enjoys hiking, daily training sessions, learning new tricks, chasing her Frisbee and trying nose work. Her attitude continues to be, "What's the next challenge and let's get started now."
All of Shadow's traits - dedication, enthusiasm, strength and attitude, have led to her success. But, it's the depth of her character and her affection that lead to her finest qualities - loyalty and love.
March 11th: Lili enjoying the good life in Palm Springs.
March 5th: A mash note from Sierra's mom, Chrystal.
Judy, I wanted to tell you thank you for trusting us with Sierra. We have already decided that eventually when we are ready for another puppy we will choose one of your amazing babies, if we are chosen. You are a very gracious kind person and my response when people ask about Sierra is first due to you! I believe she was destined for us. I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for my family. There are few if any people that would have been so generous. I am truly grateful as is the rest of my family. Even my 2 year old is in love with her.
We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
When we are in Anchorage we will definitely let you know so you can see her.
I just can't say thank you enough. You have been very special for our family.
