We've had Drake for 3 years now,.... Ex Canadian Champion showdog (Coastal Views High Livin Emotion - http://www.freewebs.com/tulloch/) that now lives in a ski resort & is a true "mountain dog" We utterly adore him,.... So much character & a real love bug. Not half photogenic either...... We think we have a pretty cool dog park..... I'll just keep this spot warm for you..... Makes a good navigator too..... Nothing beats a good romp in the snow though..... Such focus...... Drake has his own thread here: http://sunpeaks.freeforums.net/thread/80/dogs-life Drake is my first sheltie, but he's #5 for my wife,..... I'm a total convert now.
