"Whiskey"

WHISKEY was our Champion show boy.  He finished his AKC championship with 3 majors. He won his International Championship in four straight shows and earned a Best In Show! He also earned two agility titles and his Rally Novice title! 


If you look up the word "sweet" in the dictionary, there's a picture of Whiskey for the definition.

​​Our Dogs at the Rainbow Bridge

​​These incredible animals come into our lives and enhance our world.  When we lose one, we lose a member of our family.   Each dog is an individual and each one holds a very special place in our hearts.  They are not with us long enough.  When we get a new puppy, we know they won't be with us as long as we'd like, but our lives are much better having shared it with each one. 

Martini was a wonderful girl with a vivacious personality!  She was full of life and loved every minute of it. She would chase the boys to steal their toy, race around the backyard like a wild woman, and then curl up in a lap and allow us to love on her.  She had to sleep touching someone (usually by laying on their head!) and loved to snuggle.

Martini was the ultimate show dog.  She finished her AKC championship with 4 majors (two 3-points and two 5-points) in limited showing at 19 months of age.  She was Winners Bitch, Best Bred By Exhibitor, and Best of Winners at the 2007 Western Regional.  That was her calling in life -- to let everyone look at her and envy her beauty.   Diane Mueller (Martini's Breeder) and Jayce White brought out the best in her as her handlers.  Thanks, Ladies!


She left us way too early.  Damn cancer!  We miss our Tootie Fruitie Teeny Weeny.

Kahlua was the sweetest dog that ever lived.  He did all he did for one reason -- because we asked him to.  He was not from working lines.  He didn't have working in his blood, but he did so much simply  because he was a pleaser.   He wanted to be by our sides more than anything and was willing to put it all on the line for us.  Sleep well, sweet Louie-Man... there will never be another dog with as big a heart as you had.

Bailey was our first Golden Retriever and taught us so much about intelligence, learning, training, and mainly love.  He was a "backyard bred" dog and started his life with hip dysplasia.  He had TPO surgery when he was 9 months old on both hips.  This surgery gave him a great life filled with agility, hunt and obedience.  He was a very smart dog and was always happy.  He loved to work and loved to be with us.  He left us at 13.5 years old and we miss him every day.  He was a true joy in our lives.
