Matthew with Tia @ 8 weeks old
It would be so easy to write a book about Tia, there is so much to
say about this special girl. Tia loves affection and is so eager to
please. She is one of the sweetest Spinone girls you will ever meet with a very calm,
but adament demeanor. She knows what she wants. Tia loves to hunt and swim and is a natural
retriever, When she was only six months old she chased a duck into a lake and was in the
water swimming tirelessly after it for a good 25 minutes. For awhile we
thought we were going to have to go into the water and get her to come
out. At 11 months Tia earned her AKC Good Canine Citizenship
Certification and Prized III in NAVHDA with a total of 98/112 points.
At one year old she recieved her AKC Junior Hunt Title. April 22, 2013
Tia earned her 4th and final qualifying leg for her AKC Senior Hunt Title.
She earned all 4 legs, all in a row, with no misses. Tia is our first ever Spinone.
she is the light of our lives here at home. We call her "Queen Bee T". She always makes
sure everyone is in line, our take charge girl. Tia has bought us some beautiful puppies
over the last several years. Although she has retired from having puppies, Tia continues
doing what she loves, hunting, searching for ducks, swimming and most of all making sure everyone
here is "A" OK. We love our Tia!

Veron with Furba @ 8 weeks
We call her Furba Fontana and what a special girl is she. It was love at first sight when we brought her home to live with us. All the dogs too instantly fell in love
with her as she charmed her way into the pack. Soon she was out hunting just like the big dogs and took an instant liking to birds and water. When she was only 4 months
old we led her to the water and she took off swimming like an otter. When all the dogs go out together for a run Furba is the first one to find the water hole and always
the last to get out. She has a great nose and natural instinct and at the age of only seven months she ran her NAVHDA NA test and earned 112 points for a perfect score Prize I.
On October 30, 2011 Furba earned her AKC Senior Hunt Title, just 2 days before her 2nd birthday. At 4 years old Furba earned a NAVHDA Utility II. Furba and Rocco brought
us puppies, Sara and Morghen that have stayed here with us. Furba is now retired from having puppies.
