So far we have seen Gail and Karlo adamantly take the field (since they were about 6 weeks and both just ran at practice at the TSSC Trails in Pennsylvania 12-5-99)! And Danika just started her confirmation career this past November 27th at the Chesapeake Bay Kennel Club Dog Show in West Friendship, MD. She too is entered at the Cleveland shows.
