Wish Us Luck!

I wanted to make a quick update to ask everyone to wish Leo luck--we are going down to Hutto, TX, for an IABCA dog show this weekend! Above is the professional photo taken at his last show, when he won the Rare Breed Best in Show puppy award. I finally got around to making it digital so we could put it up on here! ;)

Leo is on his way to becoming an ISSR Shiloh Shepherd stud! We had hip x-rays taken at just after one year and sent them in to the OFA for their preliminary rating. Leo came back "Good"! So we are very pleased and now we need to wait until he is two years old to get his adult rating for OFA and his rating from Penn Hip as well. We are considering which other health certifications we would like to do so we can get it all done at once. Leo passed his temperament test at Homecoming last year, so he is on track and looking good!

Check back after this weekend--I will try to have new pics up and a show report next week!
