"Adam" at 15 months - growing coat!

January 2012:  We are very excited about "Adam's" upcoming first litter in January 2012 from our lovely "Yonnie"  This should be a blue, apricot, cream litter with a possibility as well of blacks and silvers. This should be an oustanding litter for service & therapy puppies, as well as hopefully a few show prospects.  Watch for Adam at the International Show in February 2012 in Ridgefield, WA as he competes for his International Champion Adult Title.

Sept 2011:  "Adam" is a beautiful "boy" in personality, temperament, conformation - and of course in coat color and texture.  He has the gentle spirit coming through Eve's lines, a very high level of intelligence, is joyful yet settles well.  "Adam" will be bred to our "Yonnie" for his first litter.  Also watch for him in the show ring in late 2011 and in 2012.
