Katie

I had no intention of taking a puppy when I went up to help evaluate Sarah Mahoney’s K litter but there was one little puppy girl that caught my eye. I couldn’t help myself and brought her home with me. It was a life changing decision that was also probably one of the best things I have ever done. Panthera Leonbergers would not have existed had it not been for Katie. Katie was the best of everything a Leonberger should be. She had an amazing temperament, gentle and kind to people and other dogs. She loved children and nothing made her smile more than being surrounded by lots of them. As a nurse, she was very attentive so much so that she would cause skin irritation from her licking. Gardening was something Kate loved to do and she got great pleasure digging up things I had just planted and moving them to other locations. She was also quite the artist and trees and bushes in our yard were often wrapped or draped with pieces of hose as part of her exhibits.

Kate was quite the show girl. She won the GLLC Fall Regional in 2004 and never lost a class from that point. In 2005, she won the LCA National Specialty and followed that up by winning the GLLC Spring Regional. In 2006, she was BOS at the LCA National and repeated that achievement at the AKC style show in 2008. She retired from showing until 2011 when she achieved her AKC Championship at the ripe old age of 8. Her last show was the 2012 LCA National where she won Best Veteran in Sweeps.
