|Jubilee, Coal, Nike, Hunter, July 27, 2011|
|21 months old|
|An early training session in Virginia, around 1999|
|2002 or so, getting her Sch2 title|
|Nike's first litter--Blackthorn's B litter out of Bodo v Tiekerhook|
In her time with me, she produced a number of excellent sons and daughters, and it is an amazing pleasure to see her with her grandchildren nowadays.

|Nike, followed by grandson Lynx, grandson Musket, and daughter Hunter, 2010|
As she has aged, she has only gotten so she enjoys life even more--people have become a great pleasure to her and she loves nothing more than to find a visitor and climb in their lap on the sofa with her ball.

Today, I took pictures of her with her son and two daughters--Jubilee (Ash daughter), Coal (Ash son), and Hunter (Alex daughter)--and then we went into town and walked through the aisles of Petsmart, letting her explore and sniff and pick out a few toys to take home. Then I bought her a bag of ice (my icemaker is broken, tragedy!!!) and at home, I gave her a toy, a bowl of ice, and a marrow bone. She wasn't sure what to enjoy first!
|A marrow bone, a squeaky toy, and icebones--life is good!|
