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.)

||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.
