Her daughter sired by Brodie is staying with me here at Abfab, co owned by Megan Harrison.  

Astro is now called Arrow, and will hopefully begin competing in Agility in June 2013.  He gained his CGC!

Regan and Kim have their novice agility titles!   Way to go to the Long Island Abfab connection.

Bella has been in the ring a couple of times, picking up two majors towards her grand championship.

Noodles has shown a few times, with more points towards her grand championship.

I had the pleasure of meeting Hunter in person.   Hunter just gained his PT and he's not yet 18 months old.   He is now Abfab's North To Alaska CD
RE PT.   He will start competing in agility soon.  It was wonderful to meet Terry and Ellen in person and enjoyed their tremendous hospitality.   
What a set up at home and at the shows!   Amazing.

Johnny enjoyed a brief return to the ring, taking 6 Best of Breed wins.   He accompanied me to Alaska and had a great time.   Huge Thanks to
Ingrid, who drove me an amazing amount of miles to see the beautiful scenery in Alaska.   I have to say, she's a great steward.....most of her days
at the shows were spend stewarding, but the highlight was that her co owned Keeshound took BEST IN SHOW!
