Gatehouse Van D Dryvs Lyk A Dream, RN, CGC, TDI (Halfmoon DreamN Red Wyt N'Blu, CGC  X  Am/Int'l Ch Wbar's Miss Congeniality)




born May 10, 2007



"Parker Pie" is my pick puppy from the first (and only) litter sired by Banner.  I had wanted an apricot brindle boy, and when momma Dagney presented us with FIVE apricot brindle boys in the litter, I knew I had my work cut out for me.  It was a tough decision, as all of them were beautiful, and each week I studied hundreds of photos arriving via email from Colorado until I had every detail memorized down to the pattern of the stripes.  Then after nearly a week of hanging out with the puppies in person, I finally decided on "Green Boy" - a chunky bundle of fun with a blocky head, huge bone, and a personality to die for.


Parker is happy, playful, and silly - he LOVES toys, and he loves showing his toys to anyone and everyone who walks into the house, the motel room, or approaches the van if he is inside.  If a toy is not readily available at the time he feels someone needs to see a toy, he'll settle for a shoe, a bedspread, a food pan, a bungee cord, or any tiny little smidgen of dirt or grass he might be able to pick up off the ground when he spies a new friend.


Parker is currently enjoying Rally Obedience and Therapy Dog visits while he's waiting to mature enough physically to compete in conformation.  He is very tall and if he continues to mature as long as his daddy Banner did, he will be a sight to behold in a couple of years.
Thank you, Nick & Shannon Van Duren, for believing in Banner and for allowing me the opportunity to be so closely involved in this litter.  Even from over a thousand miles away, I learned so much and could not have shared my first breeding experience with anyone better.
