Today s Alexis’ 17th birthday and as I begin the countdown to the final year of her youth I cannot help but take note of just how wonderful of a person and talented handler she has grown to become. A true team player that roots on all of those around her, remains positive as well as ethical in the ring and out. She is responsible and a very hard worker, making sure to take time from hanging with her friends to do the work she needs to do – like tending to her show dogs and working on their socialization. I so cannot wait to root her on through her final year in Juniors. She’s truly an amazing young woman!
