Flash truly lived up to her name...a bitch it was hard to ignore at home, on a walk and especially in the ring.

From the time she was a puppy, she owned the show ring...at an early show, she stopped, turned and barked at a judge who had the audacity to walk past her.  Of course, he couldn't resist and she was Best of Breed that day...along with many others in her career, ending 2003 as #11 in Breed points.

Sharing the same father with her half-sister, Scoop, meant Flash was also not going to be part of our breeding program.  Because we felt Flash was a bitch who would thrive as a single dog, not sharing attention with any other dogs, we placed her shortly before her 3rd birthday with Christina.  They have become an inseparable pair.  

People frequently ask "aren't you sad to place an older dog?"  Yes, it's a tough
 choice...but then we describe this wonderful moment.  The first time we saw Flash after her placement, a year had passed.  She was delighted to see us, actually leaping into John's arms.  But about an hour later, when it was time for her to leave, she trotted off quite happily with Christina, never even glancing back at us.

When you make a dog and an owner that happy, it's impossible to be sad.
