Our beloved Kate crossed over the bridge 7/30/07, just short of age 16 years.

Kate was an amazing dog. She was my very first Champion. She taught me that showing dogs was in my blood. She even took a few group 4's with me on the lead! Her spirit rubbed off on everyone that met her. She was always happy. She took on our family as her duty and we appreciated that in her. She raised my boys and was very dedicated to their needs.

Katie was not just 'one' of the dogs, she was a member of our family. I don't know if there will ever be another dog like our Katie, she would have some pretty big paws to fill.
