Chum ran and certed for CKC lure coursing, and came in 3rd in his breed in his first trial. He achieved points toward his Field Championship.

even the most annoying ones. He will forever be missed.

Penny was my special little snowflake puppy. She was the puppy who never should have survived, but for perseverance from her breeder, and a tenacious will to live... She was needy, and quirky, but I loved her.

Brando was an owner surrender whom we adopted via IGCC rescue. He was a quirky old man, but such a sweet soul. 

I had Brando not quite 3 years, but the mark he left is indelible.
