9/19/11. Truffle x Roskur Litter. Due to
family circumstances, the first owners were not able
to keep Anja, so we took her back. She is such
a sweetheart, we decided to keep her.
We discovered that she is a terrific working dog, a
real workaholic. She has great ball and tug
drive. She is very interested to greet people,
and neutral about other dogs. She tends to
guard things she values, such as my training bag or
treat containers. She earned her AKC
Championship in the fall of 2014, and has also
participated and earned titles in AKC Rally and
Obedience, CDSP Obedience and WCRL Rally.
Annie finished her AKC
Championship the weekend of Oct 10-12, 2014.
See the Show
Results page for details. Just to show
how "wash and wear" the breed is, the only grooming
shows was nail trimming, trimming up the hair
under her feet, and giving her a bath. I did
wipe her feet off with a
washrag before the shows and brush her off, because
she had been playing at Icetoberfest in the
the day before. I love having a breed that is shown
Annie's debut in the AKC breed ring, March 2014,
first 2 points:
At IcetoberFest 2013 in Woodbine, MD,
Annie won BOB in the
conformation match. The champions weren't
there were quite a few dogs. Yay, Annie!
No, I didn't show her in that collar and tags :-)
Thank you to Dr. Scott Kellogg, Judge, for her
ribbon. Dr. Kellogg

9/22/12: Three days after her first birthday, Annie went in
her first Rally trial. I haven't practiced Rally with her,
although she has learned many of the movements. She got a 206
(APDT Novice) and beat her mother by
one point. She was in a runoff for First Place, and she had
it, but then I goofed and didn't notice that the
runoff had a finish sign, and I left the ring without passing the
finish. I am constantly losing my dogs some
points! So she got Second place in her first trial! Yay,

Here are a few pictures of Annie at
six months. She has a lovely sweet temperament, and gets along
nicely with the other dogs.
Anja with Mert and her Mommy. She is affectionate to all but
seems to especially like Mert and her
first owners said she was very fond of the husband.
