|Apex in August of 2008|
It was three years ago today that we first met Apex. We got to pick him up from San Rafael at an annual event at GDB called Fun Days. I fell in love with his sweet little face the moment I saw it and ran to take him out of the presenters arms. We put him in the car a short time later and drove all night back to Utah. Apex hated the drive over Donner Pass. The road was rough and vibrated through the car into the kennel. He did better after we figured that out and put extra padding underneath it. But he certainly kept us awake and he hardly whined in his kennel after we got home.
That day was the start of a marvelous journey and one of the high lights of it is seeing the great partnership that Apex and his handler have together. Raising puppies of GDB has expanded our world to include wonderful people Sue and her family. Apex will always have a special place in our hearts as our very first puppy but we have plenty of room to love lots more of these wonderful puppies. We have learned so much in these past three years and met some amazing dogs and people.
