“Hi Brandi, I wanted to let you know that the dog we got from you just won 2nd prize nationally in a AAA photo contest yesterday. We love, love love him so much and are grateful for the care you use in breeding such great animals. He will be on the spine of all of the AAA Pet books for the next year or so … Thanks again! Susan and Howard Schwartz”
