Dynasty's Vision Quest FDC CAX DCAT RATN CGCA TKP RA DN has earned her Dock Novice title and won her division! This super-athletic 2016 Kane/Rosie daughter was born super charged, super smart, and super fun. In 2016, she earned her AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy at four months old. In 2017, she earned titles in Canine Good Citizen, Coursing, FAST CAT, Trick Dog, Farm Dog and Barn Hunt and worked on her Diving Dog title. Through July of 2018, she has earned her Coursing Ability Excellent, Canine Good Citizen Community (Advanced), Dock Novice, Rally Novice (placed in all three trials), and Rally Advanced (placed in two of three trials and qualified for 2019 Rally Nationals). She also earned the Achiever Dog Award and is an active team member of the International Toss N Fetch League.

This little gal is afraid of nothing, tackles each day with bright wonder, and has a great sense of humor. She attracts widespread attention everywhere she goes, receiving kind complements of how pretty she is. What are Quest's future plans? This season, she is scheduled to continue with Diving Dog, FAST CAT (currently tied for third place in breed), and Barn Hunt. She has demonstrated a keen interest in Herding, Nose Work, Obedience, and Agility. Time will tell.

Maisie

After much research, then a visit to Fran in Michigan, I knew Dynasty Minis would have the puppy for me. Dynasty's Truly Amaising BN, CD, CDX, CGCA, CGCU is a 2014 Kizzy and Desi baby. Fran knew I was looking for a MAS puppy with the intelligence, temperament, and drive to compete in obedience and agility. Our ultimate goal is to obtain an OTCH.

At 3 years old, we are ready to start our Utility competition in March and also agility lessons. At the shows we attend, Maisie is almost always the youngest dog competing in our level. She loves to work and is smart and quick to learn. We have done some work with sheep, and she decided a couple of times to jump through the fence and round up my brother's goats; the first time when she was just eight months old.

I love this girl; her intelligence and loyalty never cease to amaze me. And, she loves to cuddle as much as she loves to work. I am proud to be a Dynasty Minis momma and to tell people that Fran and Kim are my breeders.
