CONGRATULATIONS TO NICCO

Winning Best of Breed/Grand Victor/Select #1 Dog at the National Show of the White German Shepherd Dog Club International in Oklahoma on June 27, 2010

Nicco was the top dog at the WGSDCII National Show. Nicco's calm and friendly temperament has garnered praise from judges and spectators alike in the many shows and competitions in which he's participated. But, everybody absolutely marveled at his regal demeanor when 18-month-old Kennedy Lessler walked him around the ring as perhaps the youngest Junior Handler in WGSDCII history. Kennedy is the granddaughter of Nicco's owner, Linda Lessler. (Photos of the show to follow.)

Nicco, at home, after winning his APDT Rally Level 1 Title in April 2009, at the age of 16 months. It was his first rally title. Nicco went on to earn his APDT Rally Level 2 Title in August 2009, and earned his AKC Rally Novice title on November 28, 2009. Watch video of our AKC Rally Novice title run on YouTube.

Then, just after his second birthday, Nicco won his APDT Rally Level 1 Championship on a weekend when he achieved a perfect score of 210. A video of this perfect score run is also on YouTube.

Nicco has the perfect temperament to become a therapy dog, and we hope to get him certified as such in the near future.

lance_billymelwood_goats These are two of our Nigerian Dwarf goats, when they were babies. They were still being bottle-fed. Eventually, we might try having the dogs herd them, but really, the reason we got them was because they are just so darn cute. (Don't tell the IRS, or we won't be able to deduct them) Oh, and goats eat weeds -- something we have plenty of.
