“It was immediately evident that Spencer fell in love with her as much as I did. He spent the first night with her curled up next to her crate. They travel together in the same crate and Spencer thinks that Scout is the best pillow ever.”
Scout showing off. Just a little bit!

“Scout loves to play outside, chasing squirrels and her dog friends.”
“She has shown amazing herding instinct, and works well on both sheep and ducks. We have started working on tracking, and she looks like she will do very well at it as well. Scout’s best trait is that she is a cuddler-extraordinaire!”
“She runs hard and plays hard all day, but at the end of the day, Scout loves to snuggle with her people on the sofa and spoon up in the bed.”
“Spencer is ‘Caduceus Spencer Batrille CD HT RAE2 OAP NJP.’ He is also a registered therapy dog. He works as a reading dog in after school programs and visits patients and staff at a local hospital. Spencer has a special gift of relating with non-verbal patients, such as stroke victims.” In this photo, Spencer is posing next to the quilt he takes with him on therapy visits.
“Spencer is quite a character — he is extraordinarily friendly and outgoing and scary-smart. Many descriptions of Cardis say that they are ‘reserved around strangers’. We’re still waiting for Spencer to meet a stranger, I guess! If he had thumbs, he would rule the world.”
“We don’t do much in the way of formalized training anymore, but we still wander into the rally ring for fun and he is working on his RAE3 title now. “
