FOLKS WE HAVE A RUNNER!  When Strait Layne’s You Make Me Laugh, AX, MXJ, OF, TKN aka Sillee arrived as part of our family, she fit right in as the baby sister to our other 2 Yorkies and Shih Tzu. From the start, she tried to boss the Yorkies, but had a soft spot for her Shih Tzu, big brother. Also from the start, she was ball crazy and loved to do agility. Training began and soon she was competing.

To date Sillee has earned the following AKC titles: • Novice Jumpers with Weaves • Novice Standard • Open Jumpers with Weaves • Open Standard • Excellent Jumpers with Weaves • Excellent Standard • Master Jumpers with Weaves • Novice FAST • Open FAST • Trick Dog Novice. Sillee is currently competing at the Masters level and working on a Time to Beat title.

In addition, while working at the Masters level, each qualifying score counts towards the requirements for the ultimate MACH (Master Agility Champion) title. This requires 750 points and 20 double Qs (qualifying in Standard and Jumpers on the same day).

Stay tuned for the rest of the story!


This is Mr Meko, He came into my life a year ago and has been a great companion for myself and many people around him. When I would go out and about with him I noticed people were quiclky attached to his awareness and the excitement of his darling personality. I had the oppurtunity to have him do some Hospice work, he quickly just knew what to do and found that it came naturally to him; and he loves making people happy I'm glad I can be part of his journey. xoxo ~ Deb
