It may not be balmy in Michigan yet, but the company was pleasant and the dogs were grand.

  2. Welcome, Mary Ann! And a personal congratulations on your BIS win. We are so happy to have you as one of our readers (and I apologize for misspelling your name)

  3. Thank you, Bill.
    And...if I could brag a little bit more... PJ is a very young dog (just 3) out competing against the other top 5 dogs who are all double his age or more.
    In addition...PJ has all his health clearances!
    And he has just sired his first litter!
    PJ was my stud fee puppy, and hats off to his breeders who used my 18 mo. old puppy,Buck, to their lovely Raven and produced this great young dog!
    I am having a hard time with this select profile thing...didn't mean to post anonymously...
