Skye is a great dog--funny, socially adept with dogs and humans alike. She'd be greater if I had the time to train her to her demands--about 28 hours a day might be enough for her! I am amazed at how she curtails her energy when doing therapy dog visits--she understands the work at hand...

Restora Giubilo (Giubilo is a musical term for a song of jubilation and rejoicing)
bred by Kathryn Monroe
Julie's health stats: CERF# PW-5288/2006--16, too young to OFA
Not yet GM1 tested (both parents normal). Not yet OptiGen tested, from an A to B breeding.
With an attitude like this (on the left) at only
5 weeks old, I'm really not sure if I kept Julie
because her structure was so lovely or because
I didn't think anyone else would want to live with her! She is energetic and full of mischief, thinks cuddling means sitting on my head when I lie down, would rather go over or through anything than around it, and is enjoying puppyhood to the max. I think I will survive...

Flash--On August 25, 2006, Julie won Winner's Bitch from the Bred by Exhibitor class at the PWD Club Twin Cities Specialty for a 5 point major. It was especially an honor to be selected by Dr. Betty Trainor with her long association with our breed.
This show marked the 20th Anniversary of the founding of our club, and the competition was as strong as the camaraderie was high. It was raining for most of the conformation showing, but we didn't care!
