True to her breed, Cadie approached life with a lively vigorous spirit. She came to me from Melinda Harvey of Redwoods PWD in Connecticut. Her mom was Melinda’s Evie bred to a handsome English import named Jake. Jake came to this country after winning Best of Breed at the Crufts dog show. Cadie was born on Christmas Eve which is so fitting as she was a very special gift in my life. Cadie had two litters of beautiful pups–one in 2006 and one in 2008. Cadie’s antics and personality lives on in all of her kids and grandkids. Miss you my girlie….
Nemo was my first PWD and proved to be a life-changing experience! He came to live with me as a two-year old. He and Abbie were great friends from the first day they met. After he finished his AKC Championship we moved to Seattle and discovered agility.
Ah, Nemo was ever so patient with his bumbling novice trainer (ME!) I did just about everything wrong one could do and he still thought I was pretty darn cool. He retired from his agility career obtaining his Open Jumpers title with a clean run at age 10 years.
He was such a sweet and brave boy! Miss him in all those familiar places…
Gus was Nemo’s full brother and Gus finished his AKC Championship in the blink of an eye. He was one of those “filler dogs” that got handed off to the friend of the day to take in the ring….and won!
Upon attaining that goal of CH., Gus specialized in “lazy dog” and being a total annoyance to his brother. His favorite activity is lounging and was torturing his brother when he was still around. Gus lived an amazing and full life. I wonder what he thought when he caught a glimpse of Nemo at the Rainbow Bridge?!
