Kim McNeill's Devon has a brag: "I had more AH-mazing AH-gilities this weekend. Mom was so proud of me because she says I really tried hard (always do, mom!) AND stayed in the ring with her (she calls that "dancin' with the one i came with") AND I got lots of pretty ribbons, some blue, some purple. AND I got a new title, so now NCC follows my name with all the other important letters. AND I did NOT pee on Spy-C's head, like mom said. (Who would do such a thing?????) Yes, I am laying on clean towels, which I can do because I have all these ribbons." --Devon

Karla Schreiber - "Welcome to the world, to all SIX of Portia and Dude's beautiful babies! Whelped between 2:00 and 4:30 a.m.... We have a red boy, a brindle boy, three brindle girls and a red girl! That last brindle gal was a bonus!"

Kim McNeill - "At 11 years and 11 months I decided to dust Miss Zest! off and bring her along to the UKC conformation show and enter her in veterans. I think the next oldest dog out there was around 9 years old and Miss Zest! had not been in a conformation ring since she finished her AKC CH at 3ish. Out of a great line up of Veterans, she managed to earn Reserve Best Veteran in Show in 2 out of the 3 times.
LOVED showing her that weekend so very, very much."
