"Kit" at 10 mo BOB pup SS: "Shiloh" at 5 yrs SD: "Dotti" at 2 yrs in Czech. SGGS: "Raven" at 5 yrs.

"Kit" is a beautiful deep brown, has a wonderful personality, be very vibrant and yet very gentle. He is currently growing coat so watch for him on the 2006 show circuit. "Kit" has been bred to "Madeline" and "Valentine", and both are due in February, and we can hardly wait. "Shiloh" is three generations of Friendships breeding and is owned by Debbie Euker in Montana. His dam "Dotti" was our 6 yr old Czechoslovakian import, and is titled in 5 European countries. We also have his sisters "Kayla" and "Daynee". "Daynee" and "Kit" both Penn Hipped at 90%. Great grand sire "Raven" was our beautiful black male who was well known as our "British Gentleman" – and also well known for producing our "gentle giants" with wonderful working temperaments, mellow dispositions, and early maturing with a high level of intelligence. We expect "Kit" to carry on the legacy of GGGS "Raven"(tragically lost at 9), GGS "Saxon" (11), and his GS "Cary" (11). Combined with "Maddy" we expect this to be an outstanding litter of blacks, browns, and possible creams and apricots, or even silver beige and café-au-laits. They both bring the full color spectrum into play from their backgrounds, but more importantly the temperaments of the litter should be outstanding, as was the "Maddy" x "Sterling" litter three years ago – and still being raved about by their families.


"Maddy" at 2 yrs. - very pregnant DD: "Windy" at 7 yrs DS: "Mickey" at 5 yrs. DGD: "Cassie" at 7 yrs.

"Maddy" is a beautiful black, with conformation very like her dam "Windy" (now 10 yrs of age). "Maddy" (now 7 yrs) is a delight, having a loving personality and gentle disposition. She is a third generation farm and herding dog – following in grandmother "Windy’s, and great grandmother "Cassie’s" (Intl & Vet CH Friendships Cassandra Too – now 13 years of age) paw prints. "Cassie" and "Windy", both at 7 years of age and after several very large (12-15 puppies) litters, not only earned their titles the first three shows, but also were Best of Breed, and "Windy" was Best of Breed, Best Bred by Exhibitor and then Best Veteran and Best Bred by Exhibitor in the entire show for 2 of the 3 shows. Linda is hoping to take Maddy" into the show ring one of these days as well where she will hopefully continue the tradition. This will be "Maddy’s" last year to breed.
