In 2005 I thought that I was ready to start learning the 'show' ropes with a girl. See Princess Grace (above). I got her CH and considered breeding her with a boy. Not just any boy, I looked very carefully for (I thought) and found a robust, healthy friendly guy. Here is Cassi the Golden Retriever and her best friend Estevan. I found a foundation-line cat to help breed in healthy genes, but Estevan's breeder was not ethical and I had to let him go.
