She was one of the best. She was a beautiful dog with a strong personality. High energy and fun. She was a force to be recconed with - she ruled our house with an iron paw.
We are very thankful to Miriam and John, who gave her a wonderful home for her last 4 yrs. Libby lived on 50 acres and accompanied Miriam to work at the plant nursery every day. Libby greeted all the customers and begged them for treats. She was Miriam's special friend.

Libby is a wonderfully active, smart, athletic bitch. She was one of six girls in the litter. As an eight week old puppy, she would never allow me to stack her, and so none of the people interested in competition dogs considered her. She did however handle her body beautifully. I had not planned on keeping one from this litter, but she had such a nice body and personality, that I decided to keep her. Libby has a beautiful darker colored coat, great topline, excellent rear and front. She has a blocky head with lots of stop. Her eye color is medium. She has full and correct dentition.
Libby is extremely vocal, she sings about everything. She is a very fast learner and a natural heeler
Libby started her winning ways as a 10 month old going BW under breeder judge, Laurie Doumaux. She rapidly accumulated 12 more points in the spring of '03 including WB from the BBE class at Lenape GRC Specialty. Between the lack of majors, Lyme disease (or some major illness never fully diagnosed), and blown coat, she had to wait until the fall to get that one last major, again from the BBE class, under breeder judge Sandy Dunn. Libby was entirely breeder/owner/handled to all her points.
Libby earned her CD in April, 2006 in 3 shows.
Libby is living her retirement yrs. as the official greeter for a plant nursery with Miriam and John.
