Ch. Broquel High Mountain Timberline SE
Ch. Broquel High Mountain Timberline SE
Owners: Rus & Gracia Hall
Timber finished his conformation title early this year at the Colorado Kennel Club show in Denver, CO and is now working on his Grand Championship title. Timber, like his mother (CH High Mountain Morning Mist JE – Misty) before him, earned his Junior Earthdog title in one day, and then went on to earn his Senior Earthdog title in one weekend. Long term goals are to work on his Master Earthdog title and a tracking title. We would like to thank Timber’s co-breeders Richard and Carrie Snavely for allowing us to bred Misty to their great dog Ch. High Mountain Shenanigans NAJ to produce Timber. Living with Timber is a joy as he is a quick learner, all Smooth Fox Terrier and there is never a dull moment with him around.

Owners: Oralee K. Adams
I feel honored to have Ch. Enchantment Lady Bentley O'Santerric. I thank Ric Chashoudian, Linda Goddard and Lareen Kagel for trusting me with her. Bentley earned her championship before she was 2 years old. The next year Bentley went on to earn her CGC, BN, CD, CDX, RN, RA, RE and RAE before she was 3 years old. This year we are working on Utility level obedience exercises and working on her Grand Championship. Bentley and I are also taking agility classes trying to get her ready to compete. Now if I could just keep up with her! Bentley was bred and we are hoping for puppies early Winter. Bentley has been a dream to live with and train. I also want to thank Connie Cleveland for her wonderful help in training us. Bentley is one in a million and I feel very fortunate to have her in my life.

Ch. Hiwire Pinball Wizard RN CGC THD, R.E.A.D.
Owners: Rick & Maggie Schmude
We always laugh when we talk about Bing—he had to take his CGC test twice because he had trouble walking past and ignoring a friendly dog. Since that time, he has grown into a wonderful therapy dog, and a terrific Reading Education Assistance Dog. Currently, he visits residents at the Claridge Healthcare Center in Lake Bluff, and the Center for Enriched Living (developmentally disabled persons from age 8 to 85) in Riverwoods Illinois. His favorite activity, however, is reading with children at the Lake Bluff Public Library. He’s a great listener and gives the children lots of kisses when they are finished reading. Because of his work at the library, he has become well known to the children in our neighborhood, who always run over to say hi. He also enjoys Rally and has one leg towards his Rally Advanced titled. Thank you to Ray Lowe and Diane Ryan for allowing Bing to be part of our family.

Owners: Rick & Maggie Schmude
Phoenix, like many female wires, is a true diva. She is however, incredibly sweet and enjoys Rally, but enjoys food more. She has her RN, but has been known to run out of the ring (NQing in the process) if someone in the audience had something good to eat. In her role as therapy dog, Phoenix currently visits Claridge Health Care Center in Lake Bluff, as well as reading with children at the Lake Bluff Library. Where she really shines however, is in her work with developmentally disabled young adults at the Center for Enriched Living in Riverwoods, IL. She seems to sense that they are a bit different, and she loves to play with them and give kisses. She makes these young people very happy, and they look forward to seeing her. She never disappoints them. Thank you to Diane Ryan and Gail & Michael Obradovich for allowing Phoenix to come into our life.

Topper is our first Wire Fox Terrier. Our Kerry Blue passed away at 14 years and we wanted a smaller dog. Topper was the perfect choice for us. He is intelligent, independent, energetic, playful, and curious. He will do whatever is asked "when he feels like it" (a true terrier). Thanks to Topper’s breeders Michelle & David Smith for letting Topper join our family

Hank earned the required three legs for a Rally Novice title with much exuberance in his first three attempts with scores in the 90s. Likewise, he earned his Junior Earthdog title in his first two tests with even more enthusiasm! The agility titles required a bit more effort, but only because Hank had so much fun designing his own courses and taking a few extra obstacles along the way while still being well under standard course time. He continues to provide comedy relief (although only occasionally now) at agility trials and has earned his first PACH points while working toward an MXP and MXJ. Along with agility, future plans include to continue competing in Rally, NoseWork and Earthdog.
Nevertheless, Hank’s biggest accomplishment is being a great little buddy and perfect companion dog. Many thanks to Gail & Michael Obradovich for allowing us the opportunity to share our lives with this amazing little guy.
