April 20th: Very sad news. Shadow died on March 31st. Shadow was a very special dog and she and Candace had a once in a lifetime releationship. Here is a remembrance by Candance.
2001 - 2014
AKC Champion and American Bouvier des Flandres Club Versatility Champion
CGC, HIT, HCT, CD, ASCA CD, RE, NJC, NCC, WV-N, TG-N, EAC, TN-E, NJP, OAP, MDSA SFD & N-Brace DCD Freestyle Champion and NADAC Novice Versatility Agility Title

Almost 13 years ago, one of our early instructors told us, "This dog is going to be amazing!" We could never have expected his prophetic words to be so accurate.

There was little that Shadow could not do or attempt. She could dance, beat border collies in agility, win three obedience highs-in-trial, hike the Appalachian Trail, herd sheep, pull a cart, do nose work, follow a track and appear at the Westminster Kennel Club show at Madison Square Garden.

Shadow was an AKC breed champion and an American Bouvier des Flandres Club Versatility Champion achieving advanced titles in multiple disciplines. Her picture appeared on the cover of "Dog Fancy" magazine and in "Clean Run." She was on seven Bouvier calendars including a cover and is the Animal Planet breed representative on their web site.

She was friendly and fierce, artistic and athletic, loyal and loving, bellicose and beautiful, simple and complicated, cooperative and stubborn, relaxed and aggressive, funny and seriousÉfull of life and (a bit) full of herself! She was the epitome of a bouvier.

Shadow greeted each day with her bright, brown eyes...her tail wagging with enthusiasm and in anticipation of the day's events. There were speedy walks to get home for breakfast, morning lessons and stretching exercises, her grooming session, snoozes on a choice of beds and play time with her collie brother, Heath. There were delivery people to bark at and the ever-present hope that a cat would get "just close enough!" She liked Starbucks whipped cream, icing from all cakes, fruit salad and homemade treats.

She could "dunk" a Nerf basketball, turn on a light switch and would chase her Frisbee for hours.

Shadow helped us cut down 12 Christmas trees, traveled over 100,000 miles in her crate in our van, attended countless trials, posed for thousands of pictures, enjoyed almost 9,000 meals and opened us to a world of canine charm and possibilities. Her positive attitude and willingness to live life fully every day was inspiring. There was no "maybe" in Shadow; there was always "absolutely."

Shadow loved to learn. Indeed, she taped her final freestyle performance just a week before crossing the Rainbow Bridge. She never gave up on herself or us. She tried everything we asked her to do always trusting us and giving unending effort.

All of Shadow's traits...dedication, enthusiasm, strength, beauty and attitude...led to her success. But it was the depth of her character and her affection that led to her finest qualities...loyalty and love. She expressed joy, optimism and happiness every day and remains a constant reminder of the once in a lifetime bond that can be established with a wonderful dog.

Our favorite title for her remains...Best Friend!

January 30th: Very sad news. Lili died on January 19th. She was a tremendous dog and was absolutely devoted to Peggy and Jon and they were devoted to Lili. Here's a poem of remembrance:

She's Just My Dog.
She is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
My other ears that can hear above the winds.
She is the part of me that can reach out into the seas.

She has told me a thousand times over that I am her reason for being...
By the way she rests against my leg.
By the way she thumps her tail at my smallest smile.
By the way she shows her hurt when I leave without taking her.

When I am wrong, she is delighted to forgive,
When I am angry, she clowns to make me smile,
When I am happy, she is joy abound,
When I am a fool, she ignores it.
When I succeed, she brags.
Without her, I am only another person,
With her, I am all powerful.

She has promised to wait for me...Whenever...
In case I need her, and I expect I will - as I always have.
Lili at the door
