Phaedra is a comic and an old soul. (much like my first OES, Winnie and our Beardie, Stella) She is silly and happy and avoids conflict whenever possible.  She will bark outside like there is something big to bark about but when you go to the door to check she appears to smile, wags her tail and saunters into the house.  I showed her in FSS for a time and she was a perfect ambassador for the breed, polite and friendly, she appeared to very much enjoy all of the attention from judges and handlers who wanted to learn about the breed.  She is always the first to snuggle up next to me on the bed and her steady breathing calms me and seems to help me sleep. 

In July of 2021 at the age of 12 our sweet girl went over the rainbow bridge.  She will forever be with us.
