  • Beacon Hill’s Tidal Wave

    Beacon Hill’s Tidal Wave CDX

    06/13/2001 - 12/29/2006

    Figo was our first PWD. We asked his breeder, Debbie Gressle, for a family pet and therapy dog. She chose the perfect puppy for those jobs. However, Figo didn’t stop there. He took us to places, like water work and serious obedience, we never dreamed of going. His sudden early death from lymphoma was, and still is, devastating. He was not our last PWD, but he was likely the best.

  • Pennkrest Sam I Am CDX CWDX, “Sam”

    Pennkrest Sam I Am CDX CWDX

    03/06/1998 - 11/07/2006

    Sam was a wonderful dog. He loved water and obedience and was the ONLY dog I ever owned that completed his CDX in three tries. When Sam was happy, he would jump up and down on his back legs over my head, much to the astonishment of the obedience judges and others who didn’t know him. People would stop ringside to watch his antics. Sam loved everyone, other dogs, people, and especially children. And Sam loved us. I can’t begin to tell you how much we miss him. He died at 8 years of age of hemangiosarcoma (Georgie project autopsy). We are so thankful to the PWD Foundation for their commitment to the research into this devastating disease.
