Pinecrest Sawyer Goose That Cowboy

Sawyer is an Anatolian/Great Pyreneese cross. He joined the team to be a Livestock Guardian for Dragonfly Acres. His job is to guard his goats, chicken, Isaac and Mazie!

Sadly I lost Sawyer at a young age to a tragic accident in the heat of the summer.

I want to thank Tracy Hendrickson for allowing me to have this great dog! I was fortunate to share my life with this amazing Boxer! Indy was what every Boxer should be, strong, willing, energetic and brave.
Indy left this world with the grace of a Champion. She went quietly while sleeping on my bed with me. No dog will ever take her place in my heart.

Dallas is a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Boxer and the first mixed breed dog I have owned since Royal. Dallas is a bundle of non-stop ENERGY! I am looking forward to taking her into Rally, Obedience and Herding! Thank you Mike Boyle for allowing me to have one of your beautiful puppies!

​The best dog ever! Royal never needed a leash. If only I could have bottled this dogs loyalty and intelligence so he could have joined the sports now open to mixed breeds......
Gingery’s Reigning Dynamite CD, CGC
May 1999-Dec 2009 
​Rain was only shown in Obedience four times and qualified in four straight shows, earning two firsts and two seconds. This gave Rain her CD title with a bumper leg. Rain passed her CGC test at six months of age and again at seven years of age with my eight year old daughter, Amanda. Thank you Arlene Butterklee for allowing me to share my life with Rain.
CH Gingery’s Pink Panther ​CGC
​Panther was a great dog who had been returned to the breeder. I finished his Championship and showed him at Westminster. He was a model for a welcome mat that can be found in pet stores everywhere. Panther was trained through Novice level Obedience.

U-CDX Haley’s Winter Storm CDX, ASCA CDX, CGC
Dec. 1995 -Aug 2003 
​Haley was my Novice A dog. In 2001 Haley became the first white Boxer to win High In Trials at the American Boxer Club National Specialty and she did it from the Novice A class. Haley also had an all breed HIT from the Open A class. She was #1 Novice Boxer for 2001 and #3 Open Boxer for 2003 according to hoflin ratings. I lost Haley suddenly as she was just starting her Utility career. She will be in my heart forever.
Lyndell’s Seasons in the Sun ​CGC
May 2001-Aug. 2003 
​Summer was my dream dog. She was to be my “All Arounder”. I planned to show her in every sport possible and she had the talent. Unfortunately she was born with severe hystiocystic colitis and I lost her at 16 months of age. She is one of my life’s biggest heart breaks. Before she died Summer earned her CGC at six months of age and Best in Match at New Jersey Boxer Club’s match over pointed adults at just five months of age. When Summer was seven months old she was diagnosed and I retired her for the remainder of her short life.

Holly came to me at 7 weeks of age with Canine Influenza. I almost lost her many times before she finally recovered. After her recovery, Holly has been left with some neurological issues. Despite her rough start Holly has a heart of gold. Holly always gave her all. I will never have another dog like her. She taught many kids with a fear of dogs to overcome their fears. She worked for many 4H kids during her life. I have never met another dog like her and I doubt I ever will again.
