Maddie was a ‘journey’ dog- looking back today, her name was a prediction, as they often are. Our journey together began well before she was even conceived, as I trained her mother for field and obedience and fell in love with her- when she went home with her new titles, I told her owner I would love to have a puppy from her one day- two years later, Maddie was born and our story together began.
She has successfully completed every venue I ever entered her in. She was my first Senior Hunter, self trained and titled. She accepted training for her new job- that of a service animal for a child whose family travels worldwide- and she is once again on the road, doing her job, and making me proud.
