Libby, our Alberta girl, is pictured above winning Best of Opposite Sex at WRESSAA's 1999 Specialty. Libby, a 19" black & white girl whom some have said looks "like a mixed-up puzzle" loved to show & do agility. She was also an excellent mother -- she whelped two litters of puppies (7 puppies in each litter) -- the first in June of 1997 & the second & last in December of 2000. She is pictured below winning High in Class at the SCVESSA Specialty held in conjunction with the ESSFTA National in July 1995.
Libby had so much personality that she's hard to describe. She was smart, sweet, loving & fun. Her contribution to our breeding program has been enormous. She produced 7 Canadian Champions, 2 American Champions, 1 High in Trial dog, & titled get in Obedience & Agility. We will miss her! (Back)
