Project 52 - Meet the KLADs

Meet the KLADs!  I call them the KLADs because my other hobby is breeding and showing American Cocker Spaniels . . . and my kennel name is KLAD.  These three dogs are the heart of my kennel, and the light of my life.

The oldest KLAD is Farley.  He is formally known as Can Ch Silverwood's Northern Light Am Can CD, RN, CGC.  He is a Canadian Champion, and he has American and Canadian Companion Dog (CD) titles in obedience, a Rally Novice title in rally obedience and a Canine Good Citizen title.  He is now 12 years old, and he is my heart dog.

The middle KLAD is Grace, also called Gracie-Lou.  Her formal name is Silverwood's Elegantly KLAD PCD, CD, RE, CGN, TDI.  She competes in obedience (PCD and CD), rally obedience (RE = Rally Excellent) and holds a Canine Good Neighbor title, as well as being certified through Therapy Dogs International.  She is 5 years old, and she is a working therapy dog.  She is a gentle soul.  Her only truly bad trait is her insatiable hunger and her stealing of anything even slightly edible.

The baby at KLAD (who is almost 4, so not really a baby) is Can Ch Calla's All Bets On KLAD RN who just finished his show career and is starting his rally obedience and obedience career.  He is the one I take the most photos of, because he's very pretty to look at, and he knows it.

If you'd like to see more photos of the KLAD kids, as well as learning more about them, please check out
