Phoebe participating 
at her first puppy match at 16 weeks of age

This girl was a scene-stealer from day one....  from the moment her eyes opened, she would STARE at me from the whelping box!   She carries herself with an "heir" about her that makes her nearly impossible to ignore in the show ring  - with effortless, beautiful, gliding movement that takes your breath away.... get out a tennis ball, though, and she's ready for fetch (anytime-anywhere!).....  she is the best bed-buddy in the world (she sleeps touching my feet and always wants to cuddle in the morning before we start the day!).....she lays quietly in my lap while watching TV....  and on top of ALL of that she is an excellent mother and play-mate!  She has no enemies!
She has a piece of my heart and always will!   She's my "Phoebe-licious!"
