is a very special baby to us. We were lucky enough to co-lease
her mamma from Dorothy Montano of Los Sueno's to have this
litter. Thank you Dorothy, for the wonderful opportunity.
Mattie is a very correct
black tri bitch. She has an attitude to go with that cuteness!
She loves to play with toys, especially tug a war! We are
lucky she is a kisser like her mamma is. She loves to wiggle
at new people and share those great kisses.
finished her ASCA Ch at 16 months old. And her UKC Ch at
17 months old with a best of breed. I specialed her here
and there in the ASCA ring but she was a tough one to show.
Why you ask? Because she would start kissing when you got
close to stack her. When a judge came up she would start
wiggling. When the judge got near and their face was close,
forget it, she would give them tons of kisses.
Mattie has been a wonderful
producer and mother. She LOVES her puppies and does an
amazing job. She is quickly approaching Hall of Fame status.
She has produced multiple champions, agility and herding
titled pups. One of her offspring won High in Trial Open
at the 2010 ASCA nationals Agility trial. Another one of
her offspring won a premier in the conformation ring.
Mattie's main job for now
is to be Mackenzie's bed warmer. She sleep with Mackenzie
every night along with Mackenzie's other two dogs. Yes
it is a crowded bed.
We unexpectedly lost Mattie
on January 23, 2012 to cancer. There was no signs till
that last day, then we ended up in emergency surgery. Once
inside we realize how bad it was and she never woke up.
I can't express the sorrow and lost our family has been
going through. Mattie will contiune to live on in our heart
and her wonderful offspring she has given to us.
Rest well my Mattie till we meet agin.
