Pixley Rivera joined us from Swiss Run in Vermont, bred by Deanna and Ben Never. Her father "Leroy" is from our 2014 Grand Canyon North Rim Litter (Mon x Wookie) and is a sibling to our Nexpa. What a joy it was to us to have and love this Wookie Granddaughter.

Pixley was an outgoing dog with lots of spunk who loved meeting new people. She finished her AKC championship from the 6-9 puppy class and her Grand Championship before turning 14 months old. She play-bowed her way to a Rally Novice title at age 15 months. At age 17 months, she became a Bronze Grand Champion. 

For 2018, Pixley was Ranked #3 Bitch and #5 GSMD Overall in the AKC 2018 Owner-Handled Series, which completed October 10, 2018. She was ranked #12 in Grand Champion Points and #24 in Breed Points and #30 All-breed for 2018 with limited showing over a total of about 7 months.

We share our grief with the Bryggman Family on Pixley's passing and will always remember her energy and enthusiasm for life.
