EGO aka I Am A Masterpiece
Ego is a lovely fawn boy, and we could not be happier with him! He has been a wonderful addition to our family!! He was born on March 21, 2020, our of our GCH Ripley's very first litter. (Ripley aka GCH Tailcreeks Ripley of Eastwind x Graham aka CH Stonehaven's Oxfords Talk of the Town). Ego and his siblings were born in March during the height of the pandemic! To say this year has been challenging would be an understatement! All of the dogs show careers have started very slowly as a result, and finding majors locally has been a true challenge!
**update** On Oct 16, 17 and 18, 2020 this young dog attended to his first shows! At 6.5 months he made us incredibly proud and gave us a good idea of what to expect in the future! He went in the ring with a Junior handler, Miss Skylar Finn, and was simply amazing! Happy, silly, and definitely at times comical... his tail never stopped! This boy was everything we hoped for in this breeding temperament wise, and just outstanding with his handler who did a truly great job wrangling this silly 162lb 6.5month old!!!! At the end of the three days, he was looking like a true show dog! Never taking less than third in his age class, and winning his class TWICE, he is showing beautifully, he really impressed us all!!
We were especially happy that Shannon Daniels, owner of his dad Graham, was able to travel to the show and watch his debut!! Thank you for coming Shannon! It was so wonderful to finally meet you in person!! A huge "thank you" to Shannon for making this breeding possible! She was amazing to deal with, and we couldn't be happier with the results!
Ego has parents who are clear for DM, Cystinuria, PRA, CMR, so he is already 'clear by parentage' for many things. We will still be doing his testing as we go along... but so far, we are very happy with how this young boy is developing, both physically and mentally!

Ego's DNA profile is complete and on file with the AKC, American Kennel Club.
*Other health testing results pending, we have not been able to find a local facility that will do either CAER or echo for pre-breeding exams. We are hoping to get these done at a clinic or show.
Dino aka Masterpiece Yabba Dabba Doo
What can be more fun than adding new additions to the family!?? Here is another new addition we are very excited about! Meet our new boy Dino!
Dino is out of EVE X EGO, and we are really looking forward to watching him mature!
While Eve gave us another small litter, we are so thrilled with these puppies! Dino has a brindle brother "Mush" aka Mushy, who will be joining him in the show ring!
Dino went to one day of a beginner puppy show a few months ago, and then made his "big boy" debut last weekend. While he has not been to many classes Artemis and Dino had a great time together!!! Dino showed the personality of BOTH parents, and he was the happiest and most confident baby boy at the show!
Dino is 8 mos. old now and 170 lbs. so Artemis had her hands full when his feet staying on the ground seemed like only a suggestion! Still his handler had a smile! While he only took Reserves Winners Dog, he and his handler had fun! The venue was incredibly crowded, and Dino wanted to greet everyone!!
Overall, we were very proud of how well behaved and confident this handsome boy was!
