"Olive" was a bit of a later bloomer in a very fine litter. A sprain kept her out of the ring when her littermates were already winning. Sister "Maeve" finished with Best In Sweeps wins and Specialty majors and was Best Junior at DCA in 2005, while brother Jonah also finished with Specialty and specialty weekend majors and Best of Breed over Specials. Three other littermates also finished with excellent records. When I flew out to look at Gracie's litter I couldn't keep my eyes off Olive, who had the most wonderful cosmetics and attitude - she still does!
Olive finished her Championship in August by going Best of Winners for a 5 point Specialty major! She also won a Specialty Best In Sweeps, a Specialty RWB, and two Bests of Breed over Specials.
Thanks Linda McSherry, for letting Olive come to Minnesota, and thanks to her Kris Benoit (Sawyer's owner) and my daughter Jess for helping out with Olive's show career.
Olive is available to an appropriate home, as a pet/companion. She is very bright and an excellent companion and housedog, but is very much the hunter and would probably NOT be good in a home with cats. She WOULD clear your yard of squirrels and rabbits! Olive would prefer to be an only dog, or to live with a male dog. She's great with kids and extremely outgoing.
