Sally as an Artist's Model

Sallie's new owner Linda Harris is a talented fine artists and also gives lessons. She reports, "Sallie attends our studio painting classes, and I have included a foto here that I think you will enjoy, Sallie as artist's model; she took to our model David right away. Soon after I shot the pic she got up and tried to crawl into David's lap, and that's when I shooed her off the model's stand. She spends class next to me and my easel, or following me about. She has been my shadow every since she arrived, pretty much, and we have fun together.

Stonepine Jaded

Introducing Stonepine Jaded, E.D., (Ch. Heatherhill No Stone Unturned x Ch. Heatherhill Jada De Ville)

ED and PJ

I don't know what it is with the initial names, but these two Stonepine girls took top honors at the 2009 San Mateo Kennel Club dog show in December. Pictured on the left is ED, Stonepine Jaded (Ch. Heatherhill No Stone Unturned x Ch. Heatherhill Jada De Ville) at her first show. She took a three-point major from the 6-9 month puppy class! Her bestest buddy ASCA Ch. Stonepine Stop N Stare, PJ, owned and handled by Melissa Ruble (Peppered Acres Australian Shepherds) was reserve winner's bitch to the 3-point major! PJ is by Stonepine Makes Cents and out of Ch. Stonepine Sheer Silk.

Sizzle Golfs!

(San Francisco, CA) Jenny and I love our puppy more each day! Sizzle is now about 11 months old and just a delight-same schedule-she goes with me everywhere. Before the rains I started playing golf with her. There is a course in Novato, CA that encourages dogs. She was a delight there. Ran like the wind and came back as soon as I called and stayed till I hit the ball! Nick Scarf
