filling the pawprints of Maverick, my
first heart dog...and he is doing an
incredible job of living up to that
task!  To learn more about Maverick
and why he was such a special
creature, please visit his site at the

Just a couple cute candids of
Legend as a pup - swimming is still a
favorite pastime of his!  
Legend FINALLY finishes his AKC Championship
at the Los Lunas, NM shows in October 2009.  
A huge thanks to Perry Payson for taking him in
handle Legend in the Winners class and to his
Best of Winners award that gave him the last
major he needed!)!  It's been a VERY long
road...Legend turned seven years old in
February 2010 -- but I've learned a LOT over
the past six years...and I'm so thankful to
Legend for putting up with me for SO many
years of dog shows!  Now, I'm looking forward
to stepping back out into the ring at
Specialties with him as a Veteran!
Agility was the one sport that I thought I would skip -- too much time
and effort, but a friend convinced me otherwise and suggested that I
enter Legend in his first (and my first!) agility trial in September
2009 - we had only taken a couple private lessons before the trial,
but came away with 3 out of 4 qualifying runs and a Novice Jumpers
Preferred Title -- and I was hooked!  Legend LOVES agility and has
since completed his Excellent Jumpers Preferred Title, and his
Excellent Standard Preferred Title - we're still working on his
masters titles...and earning some PACH points and double QQs too!  
I'm so happy to be able to spend his senior years with him competing
in something that he really loves!
