Hope is co-owned with Lisa Hall in PA, but stayed with us for her litter. A full coated black beauty, she was the first in the litter to achieve both a Championship and a Grand Championship in the AKC. Hope is a pretty placid girl, although she will happily do anything you ask...she doesn't volunteer. Rather she enjoys surprising you with how much she knows. After only a couple of week of work (along with the foundation work that Lisa did), Hope got her Rally Novice title by gaining qualifying scores in 3 straight shows. She finished by placing in the ribbons over herding and sporting dogs. Clever and creative, she enjoys working out puzzles in her spare time and has been helpful by finding all the weak points in our fencing before the puppies arrive. Once she has solved the puzzle, she's not particularly interested in leaving, since its MUCH more fun to show off your work than to wander away and have no one notice!! Her first litter is now 10 months old, and excelling in their fields of trailing, conformation, obedience and therapy work.
Hope is back in PA and dedicating her life to making sure the couch does not roam. She will be out for occasional specialties and to finish her BN, but is comfortable with her retirement
