    Default Gettin' Jiggy Widdit-MH 12/22/2002-2/28/2014

    Peacefully lost our beautiful girl Jiggy to cancer today.

    Jig was an exciting girl with TONS of talent and personality. She was a daughter of FC/AFC-Cosmo and my Dancy-MH. An incredible competitor, Jiggy only handled on one mark while obtaining her JH, SH, and MH titles. She was a tough little girl. You see, Jiggy broke her leg at 7 months that required 2 rods. During her daily rehab walks Jig always had a bumper in her mouth. Then at the age of 7 Jiggy had TPLO surgery after tearing her ACL. Never did she lose her desire to retrieve or hog the Dokken duck, even while battling cancer. She was a special girl out of a breeding that produced 3 Field Champions. Unfortunately for her, she ended up staying with us and never had the chance to run field trials. Our love and respect for her is immeasurable. I will miss sitting next to her in the duck blind, sharing the seat on the 4-wheeler, and that timely 7:00 pm head butt for a scratch on the head from dad.

    Rest we'll my sweet girl!!!

    Sorry for your loss.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    I am very sorry David. She was a fierce competitor and a
    marking machine. Her desire to retrieve was incredible.
    My first dog to ever train with and watch. I will always
    have my wonderful memories. You and Joanna and the boys
    are in my thoughts. Again I am very sorry.
