November 2019 - Kodi and Shiva are now official AKC PupPals! This program provides letters of encouragement with photos and short bios for the dogs to children who are enduring tough situations, from natural disasters to illness to a death in the family.

However, she also knows the importance of not taking life *too* seriously, and had fun kissing the judge and letting her wiggles out during the first show of the weekend. By Sunday, she was completely tuckered out.
4/26/19 - "Shiva the Diva" was recently selected to participate in a free photo shoot for Suzy McCracken, a pet photographer down in Edmond, OK who was searching for puppy models to build her portfolio.
