Savi's show career has been an exciting one with fun wins including Best Puppy in Show at the AKC Canine Learning Experience Match show, 5-pt Supported entry major during the Southern Fut/Mat weekend from the BBE class and a 2nd place Futurity placement.
It was wonderful to have some of our friends there to celebrate her win with a fabulous bottle of champagne, thanks to Savi's personal pupparazzi and godmother, Kellyann.
Next on Savi's agenda is to work on her Senior Hunter title and get ready to compete in obedience and agility this coming summer.

|Party girl Trudy|
Many of these pups have grown up to be talented show and performance dogs and in a short time have made their mark in various venues. Others are wonderful family companions.
We are proud of what these pups and their owners have accomplished and look forward to seeing what the future brings.
Some of our Special Stars include:
|I can't believe you are making me stay with my cake right in front of me...and on my birthday, too!|

|Busy Buddy Bristle Bone|
Savi off with the new Jack toy to find a private spot to chew it.
Trixie has her own style of chewing toys...
What better spot to relax and break in the new Bristle Bone than on the couch!

We are very disappointed that she is not pregnant and we do not know why this breeding did not take and may never know. The people on our waiting list are also quite disappointed. I am thankful for those who have chosen to wait for our next litter and understand those who prefer not to wait and have referred them to other breeders.
As a responsible breeder, we spent many months researching pedigrees and looking at various dogs, in person whenever possible such as at Nationals and Regional Specialties, and made sure Jam had all her health testing complete as well as the potential sire. Additionally, there were hours spent speaking to and meeting potential puppy people and even mentoring some of them. We literally spent thousands of dollars to do this special breeding, as the pedigree was exceptional and we all had high hopes for a fantastic litter. But in breeding as in life, there are no guarantees and this breeding for whatever reason, did not take.
On the upside, Jam is healthy and happy and will return to her role as a therapy dog, where she was sorely missed. She will continue her modeling career, get back to training and competitions and we plan on breeding her this coming summer.

Sky, CH Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain,RN,JH,TD,NA,NSD,NRD,VX, (Parker x Trixie), on a hike last week at Max Patch, in the mountains of North Carolina outside of Asheville. This is one of Debbie and Sky's favorite hikes and it is easy to see why with such gorgeous views. We were thrilled to have Debbie take us here for a hike when we visited them and shared their passion for this incredible place. We hope to return for another great hike.

Mia-belle, CH Grayhart's Special Request,CD,RA,NSD,NRD,V, (Zeke x Trixie), and owner, Jessica, showed in Open A obedience last weekend in North Carolina. They had a terrific run, as seen in the video, and went into the out of sight stays with a score of 195. Well, as we know too well why Open A is called the "heartbreak class", Mia-belle was disqualified for her out of sight stays and did not pass...very disappointing.
Mia-belle has an awesome drop on recall...
Good girl retrieving over the high jump!
We are so proud of how far this team has come and are quite confident that they will fix those stays and get that CDX and much more.
