  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Spike was my Riley's dad and my Allie's grandfather. My breeder informed me that she found him dead in his crate when she woke up yesterday morning. He was 10 years old. I feel awful for Kathy (my breeder) and it saddens me to think about his loss because he gave me two such precious gifts. I remember Spike as a perfect gentleman. Here is a picture of him in the show ring.

How handsome- I can see Riley in him! But how sad; 10 is so soon to lose one of these sweet guys. Sending prayers to your breeder during this hard time.

Oh No!. For those who don't know Spike is a top producing sire...which means many of his get are champions. He was a star in the ig world and as sweet as they come and my heart goes out to Kathy.

I know very well several of his iggy children He brought some terrific genes to the table which will endure. Fly free Spike
