About Aubrey:

  • For 2004, Aubrey was ranked the #3 Briard in Agility by the AKC.
  • Aubrey is our first purebred Briard. He is well-mannered and sweet-tempered.
  • Aubrey is very steady, some of this being his nature combined with good socialization and training.
  • Aubrey is very gentle and friendly; he gets along well with animals and people.
  • Aubrey loves children, and enjoys their company.
  • Aubrey likes to talk and sing, and is a fan of Roy Orbison.
  • Aubrey is hard working - whether it be dog sports, obedience, or modeling for the camera. It is all play to him.
  • Aubrey has a sense of humor. This was not lost on us in his early training!
  • Aubrey will be protective if the opportunity arises. He is very subtle about positioning himself between us and others, yet he is friendly about it and is slow to respond negatively to people.

We lost our dear Aubrey a day after his 12th birthday.

What an awesome gentleman he was! For those of you who knew him, he was a renaissance fellow, highly intelligent and sensitive. He really only needed us to escort him to the events in which he wanted to participate -- he did all the rest as a fine ambassador for his breed (all dogs, actually), a fair-play but avid competitor and, at home, provided us with as much love as we could have ever wanted along with his baritone "singing" and comic relief. His large accomplishments both in the ring and outside attest to his very happy and social nature, which we already miss so very much.
