Picutres of Tali at the farm on Pekin Road.


 These are pics of my arabian mare Truliors, (Gwalior PASB, x Truly Fair AHC). Her sire Gwalior was Reserve National Champion Arabian Stallion and Reserve National Champion Park Horse. He was imported from the Michalow Arabian Stud in Poland by Lasma Farms. In first career he was a race horse in Poland, a show horse in the United States and then a Stallion for Locust Farms in Ohio. This is where Tali was born. Her dam was of Crabbett breeding and so she was from the famous Polish x Crabbett cross.

She was my trial horse and companion for many years, a Christmas gift from my husband she died at the age of 27 very suddenly from an aneurysm. Sound and healthy, kind and willing the best horse anyone could have. She could babysit a child and turn around and charge up a hill at top speed. I miss her every day.

Tikva on 9/11 - Keeshond Therapy Dog






Can never get though this day without tears. Thinking about being in NY, watching the towers go down, and not being able to conceive of the human tragedy. Renting the car to drive home taking a car full of AKC delegates with me. A bright beautiful fall day, no planes in the sky and people going quietly about their day - they knew but hadn't seen what happened. My son on the phone with me wanting to know what he could do. Buy dog food, order pizza for those in the car.. Getting home and working with the veterinarians at the site for days to get them help and equipment, follow up medical care for the dogs.And then one bright day when they said the therapy dogs were there - one of them a Keeshond, Tikva, and Dr. Otto saying, "It is the first time I have seen anyone at the site smile." Of course they would - who else could have done that?

 Later when I was President of KCA, our board approved funds for her to make one last trip to NYC, to be honored as one of the few surviving dogs that worked on the site. She was only two years old when she went with her owner Cindy Ehlers to the site, but she did her job as well as any seasoned dog. She continued her therapy work when she returned home to Washington State. She passed away this year and will be remembered forever by those she touched and honored by the Keeshond community.

Lillian Puppies First Day Outside at 5 Weeks


Big adventures today! We went outside for the first time! There were new toys, sticks, leaves, grass, moss and a really big tree. Lots to see and do, and hear, like birds, and smell. Wow this was all very fun, then we sacked out and got a ride back into the house!



                                                   Stalking the twigs and caterpillars


                                                    Pushing the toys around


                                                         Calling for Momma!
