We take pride in our dogs, so from time to time we will spotlight some of them and the special things they have done after leaving our Kennel.
We hope you will check this page often to share their accomplishments.
New Therapy Dog Certification!
Face of Pet Therapy Program Retires

For his last hurrah, Sundance returned to a familiar place to walk the halls, kiss a few hands and raise his head for many loving pats. The 8-year-old Labrador was back at the Beatitudes Campus, the care facility in north Phoenix where, more than three years ago, he made one of his first visits as a Hospice of the Valley pet-therapy dog. He was the top dog, the only pet when the Pet Connections program began in 2006. Now, 175 pets make regular visits across the Valley. It’s a healthy following, but one that Sundance is leaving behind.
Sundance has been the “face” of Hospice of the Valley’s pet therapy program,
appearing in television ads for the facility with Hugh Downs.
He retired from his job in November, 2009.

On his way to achieving his Junior Hunt Title – April 2009
Here is a picture of Chisum after winning the ETRC puppy stakes event.
He did very well on the retrieves. He was four for four, at about 20 yards.
We look forward to sharing Chisum’s future accomplishments.
