~ At 7.5 Years
UKC Best-In-Show and High-In-Trial Champion Sunstar Willow of OwyheeStar, AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Novice Trick Dog, UKC Rally Obedience I, UKC Agility I, Therapy Dog International certified
Willow has been a superstar her entire life! She has attained many titles and awards (see above) for Conformation, Obedience and Rally Obedience, Agility, Tricks, and Good Citizen, and include 5 UKC Altered Best-In-Show and 14 Altered Reserve Best-In-Show awards!
Willow is very active as a certified Therapy Dog, and we do visits at retirement, assisted living, and memory care facilities, schools and daycares, and community events. I have served 30 years as a Law Enforcement Officer, and Willow has accompanied me on duty as a Therapy dog on calls and out in the community, and at the police department. Now that I have retired (as of two weeks ago!), we continue to do those same type of activities, just not in uniform!
She is always so gentle and sweet, and allows (and enjoys) folks to pet and fawn over her, making them smile and laugh!
In addition, she is a beloved “furry family member”, and goes with me almost everywhere I go. She loves riding in our truck, going for walks and hikes, running errands, visiting with friends and family, and just hanging out at home with me and her two “little sisters”, a Papillon and a Japanese Chin.
Willow is now 7-1/2 years old, and continues to be energetic, healthy, sound, and happy! I look forward to many more years with my dear girl, who always brings a smile to everyone she meets! Jan~

Okay–Willow is one in a million, but without Jan Magnuson none of this would have been possible. They have had a fabulous run together–and it continues. Typically we do not post names and contact information; however, as you will notice, Jan is a dog trainer. We wanted those who live near her to be able to quickly set up training.
Thank you, Jan for everything you have done with Willow and to help us. We appreciate this lovely update.

Digging out in the wild or on the beach is a fun activity. Digging in our garden or the yard is not desirable. Digging–its a thing.
