Bred by Liz Harward and Mara Redden, in Ojai, California-- Thanks, Liz and Mara!!


Only entered in six shows total, Jack won his class in every all-breed shows and ends 2007 with 8 points and both majors!!


Jack celebrated his birthday week in style!!  On 10/22/07, he picked up his first point from 9-12 puppy dogs.  Then, the day after his birthday he went to his first specialty (HOTLRC) and was 2nd in 12-15 month Sweepstakes behind the Best in Sweeps winner, and was 3rd in 12-18 regular class under Barb Gilchrist!  And then the day after the specialty, on 10/27/07, he earned his first 4 point major from 12-18!!!!  Happy Birthday, Jack! 

On 11/24/07 Jack earned his second major by going BOW at Cen-Tex under judge Linda Robey with Becca Geer handling!

As a young dog, training:



Pictured below at 4 months, a tad high in the rear, but overall still together:



Pictured below at 12 weeks:


Jack is from Dapper's second litter and while I didn't have plans to bring a pup home from California, after seeing the litter, I couldn't resist him!   Jack's maternal granddam is from the repeat breeding of Diva's mother and his paternal grandfather is Diva's sire.  We hope that he will be as much fun to show and work as our foundation, Diva!

Jack's name is a combination of his mother "Make Believe" and his father "Dapper Dan" (who we call "Double D").  He's a party animal at 8 weeks and we hope he'll maintain his attitude in the ring and field as he grows! 

Thank you, Liz and Mara (and Daisy!) for this extra special boy!!
