Born March 17th, 2007
Emily lives with her loving family at Rocking S Farms in Westpoint, Indiana. Her owner is Robin Sturgeon, and they are an amazing team!
Her job is to look after the various Llamas, the Longhaired Dachshunds Paul & Di, assorted goats & horses, several barn cats, a Rat Terrier named Zoe, and most of all, the Sturgeon family; Robin, her sister Karen, and their parents Larry & Gloria.
Emily combines the desirable attributes of sound temperament, intelligence, good health, joyful, sunny nature, an athletic structure WITH lovely breed type, as well as beautiful, efficient movement. She is a joy to her family and is loved by all who meet her.
Her very first time out of the gate, she went to St. Charles, IL to the Elgin KC show and went Best of Winners from 12-18 puppy class, beautifully presented and flawlessly groomed by her proud owner, Robin. We are SO proud of our girls! Emily has had a dazzling show career, with a number of fun, owner handled wins with Robin, including her first 4 point major at the Cleveland Specialty under breeder-judge Joan Luna; and a BOB and a BOS from Open at the Kokomo KC.
Emily finished in fine style in Bloomington IL on 5/28/2010 with a BOS from Open for a 4 point major under judge Jerry Watson. As Robin was at llama shows, PHA handler Nancy Martin showed Emily to this dazzling finish. We want to extend a special thank-you to Nancy for her grooming, care, and beautiful presentation of Emily to this win in a field of tough competition.
She went to the National in Pigeon Forge, TN and passed her tests for TDI (Therapy Dogs International) which enables her to be registered with TDI, and to visit patients in hospitals, convalescent facilities, etc. Additionally, Emily went in the Rally ring at the National with Robin and earned her first Rally Novice leg with a score of 95! Way to go, girls!
