I waited a long time for this puppy! Rayna is a daughter of my much loved Raymond, born from a frozen breeding a year-and-a-half after Raymond's death. I will be forever grateful to
my friend and Rayna's co-breeder Jamie Evans for going through all that we did in order to get our four wonderful Raymond/Daliah puppies. It was all worth it!
I picked Rayna because she was the smallest, quietest, and least driven puppy. I quickly realized that she is none of those things! Rayna is VERY high drive and very opininated, and
she is quite sure she is always right. Pretty much every day she does something that makes me laugh, just like her dad did. I absolutely adore her. Sadly, Rayna had three ACL surgeries
in 2017, and she spent eight months of that year being leash walked and rehabbed. However, we moved on with a vengence from that dark time, and Rayna was able to continue her career
in herding, obedience, rally, tracking, and nosework. She earned several titles in 2018 in herding, nosework, and rally, but in 2019, Rayna really came in to her own. She finished an
amazing 28 titles in obedience, herding, nosework, and rally! Rayna also surpassed my wildest expectation by placing tenth out of 110 dogs at the 2019 AKC Rally Nationals! In her
obedience debut in Beginner Novice, she earned scores of 198 1/2, 198 1/2, 198 1/2, and 196 1/2. In 2020, during a pandemic, Rayna earned an incredible 20 titles. But more importantly,
she survived a serious leptospirosis illness during the summer of 2020 to come back as strong as ever, earning her PCD and CD with all first places and three High in Trials, along with
her Advanced A Duck title. In 2021 Rayna earned 22 titles in obedience, nosework, and herding, along with 9 Herding Championship points! In 2022 Rayna continued her winning ways by
earning 20 titles, including her HC, UD, UDX, OM1 and 59 OTCH points with all her firsts! She also earned her NACSW NW1, winning overall First Place and Pronounced over an entry of 37
dogs, along with her overall AKC Master Scent Work title. Rayna continued her winning ways in 2023, starting the year with a bang by earning 16 OTCH points at the Decorah shows in
January, taking her up to 75 points. Sadly, she slipped on the ice the very next week, which started a year of many injuries, starts and stops on showing in obedience, and lots of
dollars spent on vet visits and rehab. Despite all of that, Rayna earned 22 more OTCH points throughout 2023, now needing just three to finish the OTCH as I write this in January of
2024, along with eleven more titles in obedience, rally, and nosework. Rayna has earned many High in Trials in rally, nosework, obedience, and herding, and the future is very bright.
She has also taught me many things that I never wanted to learn :-) I love her to pieces.
