Keeper MH50 HTHF!!
Congratulations to Jan and Keeper on completing their MH50, which qualifies them for the GRCA Hunt Test Hall of Fame! WAHOO!!!
What a team! Getting 50 Master Hunt test passes is a HUGE feat and this team is a well oiled machine together. Watching Keeper run hunt tests is a joy....you can see the love she has of the game.
We are so proud of you two!

Keeper gets her UDX and qualifies as a VCD4. Only the 11th Golden to obtain that title.
Way to go Ms Keeper!

Keeper gets her MACH at the GRCA National in North Carolina! Her 20th QQ at the National! What a thrill it was for this team and to be surrounded by her Gaylan's family and her breeders was very special.
Keeper lives here in Michigan with Jan, Carol and their dogs Uno, Partner, and young Kix (Keeper's nephews). She and Jan do agility, hunt tests, tracking, and obedience together.
We see Jan and Keeper frequently at agility trials here in Michigan.
Jan named her Irish pup Keeper because Jan had raised four service puppies for PAWS in four years and had to give them back to PAWS.
This will be the first puppy in five years that will be a "Keeper"!
They passed Keeper's first tracking test at the 2008 GRCA National in Rhode Island to obtain Keeper's Tracking Dog title.
Our first TD from an Abbi baby!!

What a ride she has taken Jan on!
We are so proud of this team.
When the Irish Litter was 8 weeks old, Gayle and I realized what a special pup we had in Keeper and Jan was the perfect handler to take this girl to all the great places we knew she could go.
Way to go Jan & Keep!!
