Pete loved to play and would do anything asked of him. I think what he loved most was making people feel loved. He was the perfect therapy dog and an awesome honorary pallbearer for my daddy’s funeral. My parents lost their dog the year before my father became ill. Pete was a blessing to have there to comfort my daddy during his last days. Pete would gently climb onto his bed and Daddy would smile and stroke him. In my opinion, there is no AKC, UKC, CPE etc. title that is of any higher value than the love of comfort of a dog.

Troy loved being around his girl and Junior Handler, Maelynn. Troy competes mostly in 4H events and was also in the top ten high scoring dogs at the Clark County Fair as well as a multiple Ohio State Fair Dog champion. Most of all, he loved his days of pet therapy and showing off his “pitty” smile.

Molly loved working with me. She enjoyed Obedience, Rally, Tracking, Dock Diving,and Musical Freestyle. Due to her age she was unable to do some of the more demanding sports . I introduced Molly to Scent Work when she was 13 years old. She absolutely loved it and did well.
She also enjoyed her therapy work visiting cancer patients while they received their chemotherapy.
But her favorite task was being my loving companion for 11 years.

Jenna was a rescue from SICSA. Jenna always just went with the flow. She never really learned how to play with the rest of the pack, but she would try. We called her an ant eater because she would wrestle one of the pack to the ground and then just pick at him/her like an ant eater.
Craig could get her to howl like a wolf, which was always entertaining.
She was quite an escape artist, that’s how we got her. i worked and worked on getting her to “watch me”. she would win a staring contest every time.

He was a Border Collie so of course he enjoyed doing most everything but undoubtedly agility and swimming were his favorites. Moose will be remembered for knocking over tire jumps, dropping bars and not wanting to come out of the pool ! See you at the bridge Mooser .
