Mouse was born on June 4, 2002 to Ch
Bluegrass Dixieland Lullaby CGC, TDI, HIT, ROM and BISS CH Rise and Shine's
Blazing Riot, SMET, CGC, TT, ROM. Dixie and Blaze are both HUGE, magnificent creatures
with awesome personalities. Mouse is not only a beautiful working example
of the breed, his temperament and personality are unsurpassed. He has high
working drive and is highly focused on the task at hand. He's just
an awesome dog. Mouse became an angel at 13 years, 7 months, and 1 day old, and
we're very grateful that he worked until the end of his life and passed
peacefully of old age.
