Charm has accomplished many tests and has two obedience degrees so far and all on the first try. Onward Charm, we have more to do. Charm proudly owns Joyce Ann Matejcek & Nancy Swanner.

O’Leavy’s Rommel Der Fuehrer: TITLES: CGC (Canine Good Citizen). Rommel is our best friend and our gentle protector. He has been a good companion to our family and enjoys his work with the elderly. He enjoys working and has spent much of this last year practicing being a therapy dog with our 87 year old grandmother. Rommel and our grandmother both enjoy their time together. Rommel has a wonderful spirit, he is our fearless protector and our loving companion - he always knows how to act and re-act. Sharing our life with him has been a reward in itself. Rommel has also been accepted into the Kansas Search and Rescue program. We will begin our training in September and are looking forward to becoming an SAR Team. Thanks Pat & Don for the best dog we have ever owned. Rommel proudly owns Teresa LePoris.

Xpect The Best Uv Vantasia ("Bianca"): TITLES: WGSDCII Championship, HIC (Herding Instinct Certified), WGSDCII RX title, OFA. Bianca is a wonderful dog to own. She enjoys children and other dogs.

Bianca won the 1999 National from the Veteran’s class, at the age of 7 years and 4 months. Today you will see her competing in the Veteran’s class, now 8 yrs and 4 months of age.

Ve-Lin’s von Mikee: TITLES: UD (Utility Dog), TD (Tracking Dog), TT (Temperament Tested) CGC (Canine Good Citizen), HIC (Herding Instinct Certified). Mick has been in many books and has many titles. But there is no greater joy and pleasure than working or training him for the show. He always loves to please. We always have a good time. He has a great joy for life. Mick is retired from the show ring now. He still has that glow about anything he does. When you walk out the door to do something and don’t think to invite Mick, he just puts his nose in the door and comes along too. Has to be with his mom.< He’s passed his running shoes on to his boys now. It will take two boys to fill his shoes. Mick proudly owns Lynn Conger.

BJ’s Crystal Sno-Spirit:TITLES: TT (Temperament Tested), CGC (Canine Good Citizen), TDI (Therapy Dog International). With the years adding up, Crystal finds that she is happy just laying around looking beautiful and stealing the hearts of anyone lucky enough to cross her path. At almost 10 years of age, she is slowing down a little but still finds time to chase a tennis ball from time to time and show her new "baby brother" Baer who's boss. Crystal's owner is pleased with every single day that he gets to have her in his life. Crystal lovingly owns Bert Haagenstad. (Crystal was honored with winning the "Penny Award" for being the oldest dog shown at this year's national.)
