Words cannot express what this dog meant to me. Rus was my constant companion since day one. Although not the puppy I had originally chosen, when I arrived at Deb's house to pick up my new puppy he let me know in no uncertain terms that he should be the one to spend his lifetime with me. I have never regretted his making the decision for me..... and I must say he must have known something that I didn't. Beginning on the long trip home where he curled himself around the back of my neck for the duration of the trip, he has never left my side if he had anything to say about it.
Rus was there for my first experiences in the show ring, the agility ring and the herding arena. He competed extensively in obedience and in agility, with many, many titles and placements in AKC, NADAC and ASCA agility. We tried so hard for that elusive UD but never were able to accomplish it.
I will be forever grateful to Rus's breeder, Debbie St Jacque of Beauwood Kennels for this truly wonderful best friend and companion. He was the BEST!!!!!!
Goodbye My Friend
