Mickii was our third owner/handled AKC Champion and our First ASFA Field Champion.  She excels on the Lure Field (see lure coursing page).  In 1996 Mickii presented us with our second home bred litter, two (Fatia and Tego) that went on to excel in the Show Ring and the Lure Field.  Mom to Grandkids Jamari and Crystal, both AKC Conformation Champions & Crystal an ASFA Field Champion.  Mickii still loves to lure course and sometimes competes in Veteran Classes in the Show ring.  However, she is now officially retired from Lure competition......... Mickii is Mom to Fatia and Tego, GranMa to Jamari, Crystal, Tiba, Gioia and Lucy!

Mickii was helped over the Rainbow Bridge January 10, 2009 at almost 16 years.  Rest in peace and catch all those bunnies with all those that have gone before you
