At the end of October Bayside Faded Blue SH "Levi" went to the GRC of Greater Los Angles for his first Master Hunt Test and earned his first Master leg! We are very excited and proud of him. To add frosting to the cake Levi went with two littermates Bayside Blue Candy CDJH "Teaser" and Bayside Rhythm and Blue "Otis" who both earned their Senior Hunter Titles. It was a terrific weekend.

Amazingly, I was in total sync with my wonderful dog Tux – he was amazing. I’ll wear this smile forever in my heart! Thank you, Danika for letting me have him, and Thank you, Cheryl, for training and guiding me along the bumps in the road to get here. I’m pretty sure there will be new bumps along this road for me [...]
