Shadow, a beloved black Labrador, left an indelible mark on the heart of his owner, John. His life was a journey of companionship, learning, and countless cherished memories.

Shadow's favorite pastime included swimming, playing ball, and indulging in endless belly and butt scratches.

His friendly nature made him a well-traveled dog, effortlessly making friends with everyone he met.

Perhaps the most cherished memories were the long drives across the country, with Shadow resting his head on John's lap as they journeyed from New Jersey to Texas and back. These moments encapsulated the deep bond they shared. Shadow's memory lives on in John's training, a reminder of the profound love and partnership between dogs and humans.


Teya, an exceptional 11-year-old Belgian Malinois. In her prime, Teya was a force to be reckoned with, effortlessly clearing 6-foot fences, playing fetch for hours at a time, and showcasing her flashy obedience skills. Her desire to do bite work was at the top of the list of things she loved to do.

Teya's life wasn't just about competition. She cherished those long drives across the country, riding shotgun beside her favorite person, John.

Now, in her well-deserved retirement, Teya spends her days chasing bunnies in the backyard and playing ball.


Kyra, a remarkable 10-year-old Pitbull with a heart as big as Texas, where her journey began. Rescued at just 8 weeks old Kyra's life has been a testament to the loving and gentle nature that often defines her misunderstood breed.

From the start, Kyra earned endearing nicknames, affectionately known as "pup" and "piglet".

Growing up, Kyra and Shadow were inseparable. Kyra's unique gift emerged as she demonstrated an uncanny ability to teach other dogs good manners, all while displaying remarkable gentleness with young puppies.

Kyra's favorite pastimes include strolling through the woods on leisurely walks, and, of course, taking up the entire bed when she sleeps.
