Fable and I are very proud of this team, they are not only very successful in all that they do, they are also a joy and exciting to watch. We are honored to call them both friends and family.

the song that is playing with this page says, "you'll never know what you've
done for me... you'll never know the gift you've given me." It is through
Yvonne's friendship that I came to be blessed with Slider. Thank you to Yvonne
for leading me to Slider, thank you to Jan for entrusting me with this amazing
dog, and thank you to Slider for being the wonderful gift that you are. "You taught me to run, you taught me to fly... you've opened my
eyes, you've opened the door." My dear Slider, I hope I can give back to you the
joy that you have given me. You are truly a gift from God." -
