Sadly in November, 2001, Kizzy was diagnosed as a "wobbler" which basically means that her spinal column is compressing her spinal cord causing a lot of pain and the inability to coordinate her movement.  After realizing the steroid therapy, which she was placed on immediately to relieve the pain, was not going to be an acceptable long term solution, we opted to seek the treatment of a chiropractic/accupuncture vet.  We are extremely grateful to Dr. Regina Schwabe for restoring Kizzy's quality of life to her.  Kizzy still has some bad days and gets "tune-ups" every several months, but she is able to do what she likes to do.  While this diagnosis ended Kizzy's showcareer and removed her from our breeding program, she will always have a place in our hearts and our home.
Good dogs!!!

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Kizzy in May, 2005.  Sadly, this past winter it became apparent that the disease was taking its toll and Kizzy was loosing her battle against it.  We helped Kizzy cross the rainbow bridge where she can now run, jump and play the way she did as a puppy.   
Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor, those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent.  His eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.  You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together......
