I named my first dog Fido because I was 3 years old and thought all dogs were named Fido. He was a St. Bernard/Great Dane cross who outweighed all of the kids in the neighborhood put together. Fido was soon joined by a black cocker my family won in a national sweepstakes put on by Dave Garroway's The Today Show. A series of Poodles, Great Danes, Pomeranians, Toy Fox Terriers, Rough/Smooth/Border Collies, Dobes and mixes of all kinds followed. I got my 1st German Shepherd and joined the county SAR team. That GSD, the 1st of 3, took me into obedience, rally, herding, tracking and agility competitions. In April 2014 I started another adventure with Fixx, a Border Collie puppy intended for obedience, herding, and agility.
