Later was a pleasant surprise--she was born 36 hours after the other pups!

She may have been born later, but she made it quite clear she was the stand-out in the litter.

It's a coincidence that she has a "zipper" down her nose, just like mom and her big brother, Zippy.

She is a fun, sweet dog who loves to work and keeps me on my toes.

Unfortunately, we had a four-year gap in her field training due to life circumstances. When we finally got back to training, I realized we had some

bad habits that would take more time and energy to fix than I was able to accomplish. She finished her career with one Senior pass and then retired.
