Chip is my main companion. He is one of the most intelligent dogs I have ever had the pleasure of owning. He is trained to open the refrigerator, bring my ice tea bottle, and then close the door. (This trick has been most helpful for those big family dinners when my hands were full and couldn't handle the refrigerator and the turkey at the same time.) He automatically picks up anything I drop and straightens my living room every morning. He helps me find my keys when I loose them. (Which is more frequent than I would like to admit.) He brings me the remote controls on demand and retrieves my shoes. He rings a door bell to let me know when he needs to go outside. He picks up all of the food bowls twice a day after the feeding frenzy is over. Chip will do whatever I want or need him to do. There is not a common dog trick that Chip doesn't know including sit, down, stay, shake, roll over, high-five, beg, leave it, fetch, etc. He has been extremely easy to train because of his intelligence and eagerness to please me.
Chip is also a member of the Ruff Review, Dogs Gone Dancing, and World Canine Freestyle Organization which are performance groups. The Ruff Review is composed of members of Diamonds in the Ruff (locally) who dance freestyle with their dogs. In his dance routine Chip is able to perform extraordinary moves such as multiple figure eights through my legs, the Scooch (circling backwards) and spins left and right on command.

All three have Championship bloodlines and are as sweet as they look. Each personality is different. All three are terribly spoiled.
This is their Father. Chloe is their Mother
They are giving me great litters. They are the start of my tri-color puppies.

Stone was my breeder boy for 4 years. He produced absolutely wonderful litters with all of my girls. He is one of the very nicest intact males I have ever had the pleasure to love. He is now retired and living the life of luxury with his new family in Spokane, WA.
Becca is also a sister to Chip and is Ali's litter mate. Like Chip, she is an extremely strong swimmer. She has the most muscular structure. Becca is loving and gentle and totally dedicated to me. She is extremely smart and eager to please. Becca picks up most of the metal feeding bowls and brings them to me when everyone is done eating. She shows more signs of protectiveness than the others and is a bit more leary of strangers. Becca was wonderful with Lizzie's last batch of puppies. She was very watchful over them and kept them out of trouble. She spent alot of time herding them. She was probably my best when it came to socialization of the puppies. She is extremely protective and concerned about strangers being near her litter.
Ali is a litter mate to Becca and is also a sister to Chip and Lizzie. She was born on March 31, 2005. I received great puppies from Ali. She is beautiful and has such heart. Her disposition is as gentle as Lizzie's. She is extremely loving and believes she is a lap dog. She is also a very strong swimmer, distance jumper, and loves to field train with her sisters. She brought me my shoes every morning for 6 years and picked up anything I dropped and handed it to me.
Ali is now retired and will live the rest of her life with a family in Seattle, Washington. She is sorely missed.
This shows the change that sometimes happens in the saddle from puppy stage to adult dog. Lizzie is only 6 weeks old in her baby picture to the left.
Lizzie is Chips full blood sister. She started it all. I had no intention of breeding dogs but the breeder of Lizzie saw something special in her and requested a puppy from her. She selected the sire for the litter and mentored me all the way through the placement of the puppies. I was hooked from then on.
Lizzie was Hip Certified with the Orthopedic Foundation of Animals as Good. She was eye certified each year and PFK tested. She carried herself with a rare elegance and was intensely intelligent and loving.
Lizzie produced beautiful, healthy, puppies. Bailey and Chloe are from Lizzie's 2nd Litter. Be sure to check out her past litters and the comments other puppy buyers have made about her puppies under "Puppy Kudo's".
Lizzie is now retired and lives in Alameda, California with a great family. They also have one of Lizzie's girls - Lexi.
