| Meet The Dogs |
|Sierra is our oldest girl. She is a six year old Labrador Retriever, and is the sweetest girl ever. We started our lives with Sierra when she was four months old. She was a service dog in training and we were her foster home. After some time it became obvious that Sierra had some physical issues that would not enable her to do the work of a service dog. We sadly gave up on her assistance dog training, and happily adopted her as our own. Sierra visits the chiropractor several times a year and is doing just fine.|
|Maggie is our five year old Flat Coated Retriever. We picked Maggie because we so loved our Flat Coated Retriever, Abby. When Abby passed away, it took some time, but eventually we set out to find Maggie. And Maggie has not been a disappointment. She is quite a lady and keeps an eye on all around her. She loves to run and play and can't get enough of her walks in the woods. Maggie also loves to compete in AKC Obedience. She has her Rally Excellent Title and has competed at the different Rally levels for a number of first, second, and third place ribbons. Maggie also has her CD and received it with one 1st, one 2nd, and one 3rd place ribbon.. Maggie is the true queen of our household, and we are so proud of her accomplishments.|
Luna, our service dog trainee, has now left us. She is with her new partner Mark and it is a match made in heaven. Luna was with us for two years of service dog training before she became a helper dog for Mark. Mark served in the Iraq war and his legacy from service to his country was hearing loss, back problems, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Luna helps Mark by picking up things he cannot bend over to get, by fetching "Dad" for family members when they call him, and by visiting, hugging, and cuddling on command when Mark feels the need of her support. Luna Luna was part of the ACTS program. (Assistance Canine Training Service) ACTS is located in Tuftonboro New Hampshire. For more information on ACTS visit www.assistancecanine.org
Montana is our current Service Dog in Training. Montana is two now and is a nearly one hundred pound bundle of love. Montana is working toward being a Walker Dog who will help a disable person who can use assistance with balance. In addition, Montana will perform the usual Service Dog tasks including fetching dropped articles, open and closing doors, and turning on and off light switches. Montana is part of the ACTS, Assistance Canine Training Services program. He was bred by Stargazer Labrador in Conway NH. Montana will graduate and move on with his new partner in the fall of 2010.

| Meet The Horses |
|We have three horses here on our ten acres in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Nearby trails are great for riding and walking the dogs. It's a wonderful place to be with animals. Cody is a Kentucky Mountain Horse. Traveler is a Rocky Mountain Horse, and Maverick is double registered Kentucky Mountain Horse and Rocky Mountain Horse. All three boys are happiest grazing on fresh grass in the pasture.|
