Joker du Loups du Soleil – August 13, 2003 – September 28, 2013
This morning the world lost one of the greatest dogs. A master in just about everything he did from schutzhund to dock diving and of course his favorite, flyball. Hes my best friend, my family. RIP Joker we will love you forever!
Join us in saying goodbye to an incredible dog and a girl’s best friend, Joker du Loups du Soleil, SchH3, IPO3, ONYX, CGC, Dock Dogs Master. Our thoughts are with his family, Brittany & Dequane, and all who loved and enjoyed him.

Kaboom and I (I was a stuntman and the dog trainer on set) were in a movie shoot the other night. And, Kaboom is actually the hero in the movie. He had several action scenes to do and he did fantastic. One was a bite scene, one was walking up on a deck and peering in the sliding glass door and another was walking toward the lead character (whom he later saves in the movie) as a stray dog and then running up a grassy hill about 50 yards. The movie is about a man wrongly convicted of a crime, how he adjusts to being released and the relationship he develops with the stray dog who saves his life.
The movie, with a working title of “Mr. What” is currently in mid-production. It’s a family independent film and will have world wide distribution. It’s set to come out next year.
I’m happy to report that D’Saju (Vice x Moki) passed his French Ring CSAU at the Patriot Ring Club trial. This was Saju’s and my first foray into the Ring world, so this was a bit more exciting for us than it may be for most people. :-)
