We were very lucky for Laika to come into our hearts in 1993.As we packed to return to the East Coast we were made aware that there was a Rottweiler in need of a home. I knew the breeder, my dear friend Ruthann, and contacted her for more info. The night before we departed we picked Liaka up. From the moment she stepped into our lives she was a joy to have. That was November. We brought her home loved her, conditioned her and in March we headed off to our first show. As Liaka always did she did everything with a bang. She went WB both days to receive her first two points. We continued showing and she finished her Championship in 14 show. Liaka did everything I asked of her and more. She completed her Companion Dog Title and on the same day she went Best of Breed. 3 years, almost to the day, that Liaka came into our lives she left us after a tough battle with bone marrow cancer.
