Her absence is like the sky, spread all over everything. - C.S. Lewis
Layla (aka The Mighty La) was a lovely blend of brain and brawn wrapped up in a bow of good looks and spirited charm. When it was time to work or play, she was totally intense, though her conspicuous sense of humor was never far beneath the surface! She was focused, fast, lovely, and a powerful girlie. Layla's personality, devotion, intelligence, reserve, and versatility can easily be summed up in two words: Australian Shepherd.
For me, Layla was that once in a lifetime heart dog - my quintessential companion, family member, teammate, and protector. We titled in many venues including conformation, agility, obedience, rally, and even flyball - she taught me many important lessons. When not doing something silly that I asked her to do, she loved hiking and swimming. Mostly, she liked being with me. I adored her and miss her terribly.

Cruise is a super nice guy; Layla made sure of that when he walked through my door at 4 months old. He is intuitive, thoughtful, and perhaps the smartest dog I know. He has some of my favorite pedigree lines behind him. All of that is the icing on the red velvet cake! Cruise loves to work and learns new behaviors quickly and easily - he easily progressed to utility exercises as a young pup. He smart, versatile, and very funny. He never turns down an opportunity that holds adventure and excitement (or food). He is curious, silly, handsome, and has a super sense of humor. If he is not at my side, then he's at my feet....all....the....time. Wherever I find him, he always makes me smile!
