We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude to a few people, without whose assistance, patience, knowledge and support our dreams would not have come true.
Firstly and most importantly, I would like to thank my family and my husband Alan Laird, without whose support, encouragement and assistance, none of this would have been possible and for being our official Pooch Bus Driver (Motorhome) for all the shows.
A large thank you goes out to Dr Benjamin Lobo for allowing us the privilege of purchasing our beautiful foundation bitch Piper.
Many thanks to Barbara and Juliana Du Pree (breeders extraordinaire) from whose magnificent line came our Piper.
A huge thank you to Mr. Paul Allard and Mr. Steve Pedro of Freckashpeng Hounds who have spent quality time coaching, supporting and assisting us, both at ring side and at their home in Winchester, Ontario Paul and Steve are always willing to lend us a pair of hands and share their many years of experience. They are both tremendously appreciated.
And an absolutely huge thank you to Ms. Sarah Muth for handling Piper so magnificently in the ring resulting in wonderful breed placements and Best Puppy in Group award , her Canadian Championship title in 2022 and to her GRCH title in 2023.
