We are so very excited to have Aria as part of are crew.  One of only two daughter's of Grace, the top winning Best in Show bitch in AKC history, a two time National Specialty winner, Group 2 at Westminster Kennel Club and  Group 3 at the AKC National Championship show.  She has big paws to fill for sure.  We are so very excited about Aria - her foot timing is perfection and she looks just like her mom.

I am so excited to get this little girl in the ring!  She is an absolute doll, like her mother she has a certain presence and an old soul. 

About Her Name

I thought long and hard about what to name this special girl.  Here name is the first line of Amazing Grace and I felt it appropriate that she be named after her mother but in a way that is honored Grace but allowed Aria to have her own identity.  So I decided on the frist line of the song her mother is named for.  This way it is a tip to her mom but does not have the word "Grace" in it.  I want Aria to carve her own identity and path. 

She is so much like her mother, it will not escape anyone that she is her daughter as she is a Mini Me - now we can just hope she is close to her mother in the ring!
