"LIFE FORCE DOG"
The puppy names for this litter were classic movie actors and actresses (Hepburn's mom, Manda, was Cameron in her litter, after Cameron Diaz), and Hepburn was named after Katherine "Kate" Hepburn who is our all-time favorite actress, with a little kiss thrown in for her dad! Hepburn is one of those puppies that is just happy all the time, incredibly sweet and biddable, solid in the field (she is a bigger girl, and covers a lot of ground effortlessly), and one of the best "puppy nannies" we have ever met! Friends bring puppies over for Hepburn to discipline because she is such a fantastic teacher! Hepburn is just a joy to live with. Temperament Priceless. Her nickname is "Life Force Dog" and it fits her 100%! By nine months of age, handled by our friend and amateur handler Richard Bennington, Hepburn had already won two Specialty Reserve Winners Bitch Awards out of the puppy class - one at the CVVC Specialty at the Greenwich Kennel Club show and the other at the VCGNY Specialty at the Westchester Kennel Club show. In between, she won Best In Sweepstakes at the VCCNE Specialty! and she went on a few months later to win her Sweepstakes class at Nationals! and the next year she was Winners Bitch at the VCCNE Specialty! this girl really loves to show and has huge movement. Hepburn is our calm girl, though as she gets older she is getting more feisty!

At this specialty where Hepburn was Best Puppy, Puppy Group 3 and Reserve Winners Bitch, her older sister Raya (almost two years old from the first Manda-Bodi breeding) won Best of Breed owner-handled from the Open Bitch class under one of our favorite judges, Lester Mapes, and became BISS CH Szizlin's Raya.
