Praying for pups!

We haven't had a litter of pups in a couple of years and I'm pretty darned excited about possibly getting some.  I'm watching for Jess to come into heat like someone watches a pot to boil!  She turned 3 in September and I haven't enjoyed a female this much in a long time.  She hasn't been the easiest dog to trial yet as she likes thing to MOVE and if they aren't going fast enough she has been a little quick to encourage them along with a heel bite.  That doesn't fly with judges. :-)  In her defense, I haven't been trialing much and think she's run in about 5 trials in her life.
She's a daughter of Jag and Jamie Spring's Reece.  Same way bred as Rock and a lot of other really great dogs!  She has great qualities from both parents.  She has enough eye to make her really stylish.  She lives to work and work hard.  I haven't found a job that she doesn't meet head on yet.  She'll go all day and has great stamina.  Doesn't hurt that she's just FUN to be around and train. 
We call her our pocket rocket.
We're going to breed her to Jamie's Cort.  They're very similiar in a lot of ways.  He's a little more patient with his heel bite though! ;-)  Cort likes to come forward and is level headed.  He's stylish and biddable as well.  I love how he is with Jamie's kids too!
She's due to come in any day so I'm going to go pray for puppies!
