"Monet"
AM & INTL (UCI) CH

Monet is a very special girl.   We searched long and hard to find the perfect foundation girl for our current breeding program.  One never knows how a pup will turn out as it matures.   To our good fortune (not to mention good breeding behind her!) Monet has exceeded our expectations.

Monet was pointed as a puppy, won an All Breed Puppy BEST IN SHOW, has won group puppy placements, best puppy awards, Best in Sweepstakes and finished with two 4 point specialty majors.

She has been the easiest dog we've ever trained and we look forward to showing her in obedience and rally where we are confident she will excel.

Being as receptive to obedience commands as she is, Monet is an exceptional model.   She has been featured in many of Dawn's paintings and holds a huge part of our hearts in her little red paws.   There is nothing we can not do with this dog.

We look forward to breeding Monet and hopefully will have pups in the near future.

It has been almost two years since Monet has been shown - she has been busy with her puppies.   She is back in show condition and we plan on showing her infrequently.
She just won Best of Opposite Sex on 1/26/2014 at the Orange Empire Dog Show.
