Ripley, and her littermate Phoebe's (@JanS girl), birthday was last Monday 5/31. My husband and I went camping and exploring in the mountains near Asheville, NC for our 10th anniversary and we took Ripley with us. Just now able to find some time to post a thread for her birthday! I'll post pics of her adventure week with us in another thread.

We are so pleased to have Ripley in our life and don't regret taking Melissa up on the black and rust girl when we were holding out for that boy; down to even thought she was a boy until closer look at dock time and our breeder said, "you are going to kill me...". Thus, her registered name LOL. She's obedient, a quick learner, she tries anything and everything I ask of her. She's protective when she needs to be, a social butterfly to those she knows, and dog friendly. She's so attentive to our emotions. She's ready to go when we are, or ready to snuggle on down days. She's taken us into conformation, obedience, rally, barn hunt, dock diving, and soon agility. In such a short time, she has introduced us to so many new friends and kind people who share the same love of their dogs as we do. She's been truly a blessing in every way. 😊

Happy birthday to the Vlad x Poppy litter and all 5 of her littermates.

Mom - Poppy (with her co-owner Riley Dean)
