Meet Titus. Seriously, do I have to say more? We have long been an admirer of Dreamkeeper Kennel in Canada, and words cannot express how delighted we are at the honor of having one of their boys join our family. He arrives tomorrow morning into L.A.X., and our entire family is abuzz with excitement! Knowing how fabulous Dreamkeeper is, I already know how wonderful this puppy will be. And absolutely breathtaking. Stay tuned for many more pictures and stories about this rising star!

One of my favorite shows when I was a kid was Lassie. I loved that Lassie performed miraculous and heroic acts, understanding the needs and commands of her owners as if she spoke English. Through the years, I have marveled at the real-life stories of canines who performed miraculous and life-saving acts. One of my favorite quotes is on the home page of our website: "He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, until the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
This morning, there is a heartwarming story about just such a dog - a golden retriever, in fact - who faithfully protected and saved her 11 year old master from a cougar, even to the last beat of her heart. Her name is Angel and she certainly lived up to her name this morning. It's worth the read!!!
