THANK YOU to Dorothea Vooris-Hand & Kevin & Kaitlin Hand, Dot & Bill Simberlund & Sharon Asbell for entrusting us with your favourite boy.

THANK YOU to the Pettinato Family in California, Dominic, Lynn & Amanda for fostering Apolo whilst he attained his JH title.  Special thanks to Dominic for training Apolo (in one weekend) and trialling him for us.

Apolo was personally selected by Rebecca Bush & Sue Wright whilst in the USA.

Apolo is named after the famous winter olympian "Apolo Anton Ohno" who competes in short track speed skating and has won a lot of medals, gold, silver & bronze for the USA.  He was also chosen to compete in the TV series Dancing With the Stars in 2007 and was the outright winner.
