My Rottweiler, Dana. I purchased her at 10 weeks old in April 1995 from a K9 handler I worked with. She was a very dear friend for many years. She died in my arms in Lancaster, CA in October 2006.
Di, my older Springer Spaniel (also pictured above with Dana) was purchased from a breeder in Norco, CA in June 2003. She was 5 1/2 weeks old when I brought her home. She was bred to be a field trial dog. She became my hunting partner, and my best friend.
Maggie, my younger Springer Spaniel, was purchased in Fresno, CA in June 2012. She was bred to be a field trial dog, but instead I put her to work finding bed bugs. When we’re not at work, she enjoys acting like a goof ball.
