A special thanks to Mr. Lamar Meeks for going out of his way to make sure that I got a superior puppy
and for keeping my love for the show ring in mind as he was going through his puppies to find just the right one for me.
He did a great job. Ripley is all I could have asked for and much more!! Hopefully, she
will end up a true dual purpose gal. She is well on her way, taking 2009 Best American Leopard Female at Autumn Oaks.
Ripley is also started in the timber. She is running & treeing on hot tracks.
After spending a few months with our friend Ben Hollinger and hitting the timber, Ripley is back
home to get ready for Winter Classic. Below is a pic of Ripley taken tonight after several months of no bench work.
As you can see, she's going to quickly get right back into the show groove.
