I adored Merleau’s personality from the time that she was a very little puppy. She would toddle around the kitchen and when she found my feet she would just look up and stare into my face. That is the signal of a dog that is willing to work with an owner! Eye contact. Merleau loves to carry her toys – plush toys everywhere. She will take them on 2 mile walks with her. She is smart and funny and just plain cute. Merleau showed an early interest in hunting. At the age of 5 months she flew through the junior Earthdog tunnel in about 20 seconds. She completed her JE title at her first two trials. On April 6, 2002 Merleau was entered at her 3rd field trial. She won 1st place out of an entry of 25 bitches, her mother included. That placement retired a challenge trophy – the first that we had ever won. Merleau earned her Field Championship not long after. She completed her conformation championship (entirely from the bred by exhibitor classes) on September 26, 2003 at the Wine Country circuit under Sari Brewster Tietjen with a 3 point major. Merleau was tested and passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen test and was also a joy to do basic obedience with, hence the Rally Novice title. She was bred to Ch. Amtekel's Trooper Troy twice. In her first litter she produced Ch. Amtekel's Magic Touch. In her 2nd litter she produced Amtekel's Guinness 'n Harp RN & Amtekel's Cabernet Sauvignon owned and being shown by Lindsay Moore of Albion, NY.


Merleau now lives like the princess she always knew she was with Bob and Arline Kallenbrun in New Jersey
