If you would like to see my Beauceron, Soleil du Murier de Sordeille, the
inspiration behind this website, I have lots of pictures of her in the
Soleil 2 months old
Soleil 3 to 6 months old
Soleil 6 to 12 months old
Soleil 12 to 24 months old
Soleil is also a certified Therapy Dog. You can see her work here:

Soleil is an incredible agility dog. She was the top Beauceron in the USA in
2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008. She came in 6th in the 26" class at the 2006 AKC National Agility
Championships and has qualified for the AKC World Team Tryouts in 2006, 2007 and
2008. She came in 4th place in the 24" height class at the 2008 AKC Agility
Invitationals. To top it all off, she now has Agility Champion titles from two
different organizations. She has earned the MACH (Master Agility Champion) title
with the AKC (American Kennel Club), and she has earned the ADCH (Agility Dog
Champion) title with USDAA (United States Dog Agility Association). Soleil has
been an incredible agility partner and a wonderfully enthusiastic teammate. She
has by far exceeded all expectations I had of her when I picked her out at 8 weeks old.

Soleil and I went back to France in May, 2002 for the Nationale d'Elevage, the
National Beauceron Specialty in France. She received a rating of Recommandée or
Cotation 4 at just 12 months of age. To earn this she had to get an
Excellent rating on the temperament test, an Excellent Plus rating in
conformation, and be certified free of hip dysplasia. Soleil received a
French hip rating of Dys A/A which means she is free of hip dysplasia.
I have a special photo album of our trip here:

My new Beauceron puppy is Mickey, Disney du Bois du Nord. He is currently
working in agility, but is still too young to start competing. I take it slow and
let the puppies finish growing before I do too much with them. Too many things
can happen if you push them too fast. They are a very slow breed to mature.
