Old English Sheepdog

Anna seems to always be handed the naughty dogs which she seems to love the challenge of making them look not so naughty in the ring, pictured here with Gallant, she won the Open Intermediate class at the Basenji Specialty only losing BJH to her sister, Laura with Twinkle.  Laura co-owned the black tri is Twinkle and finished her International Championship and took Group wins with her, sadly she passed away in 2010.  What a beautiful dog she was and once you were her human friend, she was very devoted to you. We miss Twinkle!
