If you are fortunate, you will have a dog come into your life that surpasses your every dream....
that once in a lifetime dog, your best friend, your "heart" dog.
Leah was all that and more to me.
Sadly I had to say goodbye to her far too soon.
On Sept. 10, 2010, at only 8 yrs old, we lost our beautiful, vibrant Leah to cancer.
We are still trying to heal from the loss.
I miss you princess girl.

PEDIGREE (click here)
Leah came to live with us in late summer 2005. Many thanks to friend/mentor Bill Stone for allowing Leah to join our family. Leah was imported from Europe. She comes from the Netherlands. (Quodijin's kennels). Her pedigree contains dogs from some of the best Wirehaired Vizsla lines in Europe. We feel honored to have owned such a lovely dog.
Leah was an extremely affectionate and devoted family companion, easily trained and willing to please, with a endearing sense of humor. She was a superb mother to her puppies.
"Leah" was a natural retriever, and loves the water. After a swim, she loved nothing more than to lounge on the boat.
Yes, she was always a "Princess" and expected to be treated as one.
