CH AllAround Swift Running Brooke AX, AXJ, RI, HT, DN, DJ, TKN, CGCA, VX - "Brooke"
Brooke is my pick puppy from the Brie to Jack litter born on July 2, 2014. Brooke is quite the character. Keeping her four feet on the ground is nearly impossible. She’s extremely friendly and is NOT afraid to show it! She is the epitome of what I strive to breed – a friendly, intelligent high-drive dog with the correct structure to back it up. Brooke earned her championship in only four shows. She finished in style winning Winners Bitch at the Eukanuba National Dog Show for 5-point majors two days in a row! Her true passion, however, is work! Brooke is extremely driven and talented in agility, dock diving and herding. She is one of the most natural Beardies on stock I’ve ever seen. I’m just crazy about Brooke. She enhances our lives so much with her enthusiasm and drive. Never a dull day when Brooke is around!

June 18, 2021: We've arrived in St. Louis for the 2020 (yes it's a year late due to COVID) BCCA National Specialty. It will be a fun week of agility, Rally and Conformation for us.

March 2, 2021: Bad Dog Agility came out with their Breed Power 10 list for 2020 and Brooke is officially the fastest Beardie with some smoking fast 6.5 YPS jumpers runs.

October 14, 2020: We took a group walk after I voted.
September 8, 2020: Brooke is SO EXTREMELY proud of her sister, Penny, on her Master Agility Championship (MACH). This also earned Penny her BCCA MAster of Versatility title. This is such a huge accomplishment and I couldn't be more excited for Suzanne and Penny!!!
