When Apache is not playing show dog, you can usually find him out in one of the pastures playing or in the house curled up taking a nap. But no matter what he is doing, his coat always looks fabulous. I hardly ever even brush it. He is like a cool Cary Grant in personality. He is a love to live with.

Apache loves toys. It would be his wish to have a new toy every day to play with. He never tears them up but loves to play with toys completely. And he knows what items are toys and what are not! One day a little boy came to visit and he had a Spiderman toy with him.  Apache had never seen a Spiderman doll before but he just knew it was a toy. Apache never takes anything from anybody but he wanted that toy. Badly! Apache kept trying to steal the toy from the little boy and the little boy did not want him to have it.  It was quite a game between them.

Apache is very photogenic and is usually looking very elegant and regal. He is anything but! Apache can usually be found in any antics or highjinks around the place. The look on his face is pure enjoyment. He loves to be in the middle of everything. Apache is also a social butterfly.  If I take a collar out to take the dogs anyplace, Apache is the first to try and stick his head in it as if saying "pick me! pick me!".  He loves to go for a drive, a walk in the park, or even going to a dog show.  As long as he can go and be with us then all is right in his world, and is crushed if you leave him out of any event.

Apache 2 years old showing in 2004

As you can see below at 5+1/2 years of age Apache is still going strong. He tied for 6th place out of 43 dogs at Silkenfest 2007. For more racing photos click here "Racing photos".

As I said Apache loves to go to the shows. The first year of showing we both had to figure things out but now he smiles and loves the rings. And when a dog loves it so much it comes out to the judges. In July 2005 he showed in 4 Rarities ( all over 100 dogs entered) shows and  took one Best in Show and one Reserve Best in Show. We were so proud of him.

Apache even at 10 months old had captured our hearts completely. As soon as we saw him at 8+ months old we knew he belonged with us. And we were right and have enjoyed his bubbly personality ever since.
