Best In Field Field Champion SEMPER FIDELIS ASHES OF FIRE SC
Harper is a fun, spunky, confident, sweet, fearless puppy. She is not what I would consider a crazy high energy dog, but she does have some decent prey drive. Harper is a laid back girl. She has never been really vocal (except for dinner time), is not a big whiner, and has never been destructive. At 16 months we could leave her out of her crate for several hours while we left to run errands, which is almost unheard of in a young RR.
Even though Harper is a show dog and performance dog, she is still a companion and is spoiled rotten. She loves to sneak onto our bed at night when she thinks that we don't notice and snuggle into the blankets. In the morning she pops up, flaps her ears a couple times and is ready to start her day, wondering why we haven't embraced her same state of mind. Harper is a super sweet girl who will even occasionally give kisses to strangers. She is really easy to live with and has an off switch. She only requires a small amount of exercise every day, and is happy to settle down for a movie or snuggles on the sofa.
