Xena was just shy of her 15th birthday. We laid her to rest June 10, 2013
She was the BEST dog we have ever owned. All she ever required was a pat on the head and her dinner.
Xena loved every living animal and person. There wasn't a mean bone in her body.
This was a picture on the day we acquired Xena. There is not too much cuter than a Lab pup.
She had extreme tolerance. That is Champ pulling on her tail. She was patient, kind, and loving ALL the time.
She never met us right up till her last day withOUT something in her mouth. If she didn't have a toy to greet us with, she would grab a towel or a dog bed....something :0)
She was structurely a perfect "10" and temperament a perfect "10"
Xena, Jet, and Trouble we called "The 3 amigos." They stayed kenneled together and looked out for each other.
Xena was as loyal as you could ask for. She never needed to be leashed anywhere. She would never wander. All she wanted was to be with us.
Since she was a fabulous traveler she went everywhere with us.

Xena qualified for the USDAA finals 5 years in a row.
This dog was never lame a day in her life. She never complained a day in her life.
Everyone should be so lucky to be blessed with a dog like Xena.
This photo was taken of Xena April 28th, 2013. My grandson, now 23 yrs. of age is sitting with Xena saying good-bye. I told Dustin you never know when it will be your last good-bye.
Good-bye Xena bean. You have left a HUGE hole in all of our hearts, but it was an honor to have you for that many years. I look forward to seeing you again some day.
