TEAM FOXFIRE : ABOUT US AND A FEW OTHER PEOPLE
|The dogs are the primary team members though their main job is being dogs. They eat, bark, get us out of bed in the middle of the night, play tug-o-war with snakes, dig holes, kill toads, eat birds, drag in dirt, make things stink...well we could go on. They are DOGS after all. Our dog family is pretty diverse including a few senior citizens (10- 14 1/2 years), two Bracco Italiano and then everybody in-between.

- WORKING SCHMUCK
|I am the one who writes all of this stuff and maintains this web site. Of course, that is not my only function. I train and show the dogs for conformation competition and sometimes wing-it successfully at hunt tests. You might occasionally find me on a horse. I am also college educated (Go Ducks!) and gainfully employed full-time because dogs don't pay for themselves -- or do the dishes, mow the lawn or do the laundry, even though I ask them to! The dogs take up most of the time I have leftover after working. I do manage to go ballroom dancing, pub crawling or going to a concert on occasion.
LaRITA (La-Reeta) - AKA CRAZY DOG LADY
|There is the person everyone thinks is in charge, and then there is the person who is actually in charge. LaRita takes care of the dogs on a day-to-day basis. She can tell who is barking, is excellent at poop identification and everybody listens when she says "come" or "be quiet". LaRita also has an extensive and growing orchid collection. She takes up painting occasionally and takes a lot of the photos you see on this web site. LaRita is Amy's Mom, in case anyone was wondering. This photo was from 1960-something. We'll get a newer one soon.
GEORGE - THE GUY WITH THE HAT
|George started out as Amy's co-worker but soon volunteered himself into crazy dog-show person status. Once into showing Norweigen Elkhounds, he helps wrangle the Weimies at dog shows, transport dogs and helps with any other work that needs to be done. George is always supportive and positive but has a competitive side when he gets fired up! George additionally coaches kids soccer, is fly fisherman, cooks a wicked beef wellington, builds model boats and airplanes, and knows more about car mechanics than most people can shake a wrench at.
