Gunner & Gypsy Labour Weekend 2022.jpg

Gunner & Gypsy

Our 4 legged team...

When Gunner wiggled his way into my world at a mere 16 weeks old, he was the fluffiest little rescue dynamo! This pint-sized wonder is not just a trained skilled companion; he's our head honcho of raising puppies, the ultimate puppy enthusiast! Plus, he's a certified maestro of advanced tricks. But wait, his hobbies are where the real magic happens! He's a water wizard, ruling the waves with his top-notch swimming skills. Anything that moves? Consider it fetched! And don't get me started on his modeling gigs—every photo session for my art becomes an epic masterpiece with Gunner stealing the show!

Gypsy, the dynamo dog, is like a furry superhero in training! She's not just a skilled companion—she's on a mission to conquer the CGC titles, paving her way to canine greatness. But that's not where her story ends! Nose work is her thrill, sniffing out mysteries and secrets like a furry Sherlock Holmes. And let's talk about her love for the water—this pup's a swimming sensation, making a splash wherever she goes! Urban or home agility is her playground; she maneuvers through obstacles like a four-legged ninja
