was the puppy that stole my heart when he was four weeks old.
This litter was out of my two "baby" dogs (George and Scooby)
and I knew it would be a very special. The names of the puppies
in the litter were based on Scooby Doo characters and Shades'
puppy name was Fred. I kept telling everyone, I wanted a red
puppy from the litter, but this little black boy kept finding
my lap and then my heart. When people would come over they

something special. He easily finished his ASCA Championship
before he was a year old. I have specialed him here and there

During the coming year, we will show Shades
in ASCA and AKC. He also will
be working on his obedience and rally titles. But, mostly he
will be here tugging on my heart strings which he has been
pulling from the beginning.
Shades will be bred one time
close to home for his first litter. Then will not stand to
outside girls till he is closer to4. That will give this litter
a few years to grow up and we can see what he can produce.
