The beginning of our journey - Katyra's Kokuma CGN OTD WC CDX AGN AGNJ

“Kuma," also affectionately called “Kumasan”, which means “little bear” in Japanese. She is my first Toller.  I didn't know these dogs, but after some research into the breed, I decided to get one and have never looked back!

Kuma is an ‘old soul’. She is a sweet, friendly and outgoing dog with love to spare.  She loves hiking, swimming and cross-country skiing.

She introduced me to competitive obedience, field and agility.  Kuma is a retired Ottawa Therapy Dog (OTD). She loves nothing better than a warm lap to put her head on and share the love.

Uncertainty, fear, and anxiety closely mirror to me the first car ride home new parents take with their newborns. She taught me plenty of things, patience being one of the big ones, but a deep love and affection for our four legged friends that I didn’t know was possible is another.

The cosmos had spoken, and it began my love affair with Tollers. These dogs seem to be meant to be in my life.

Katyra Tinks He's Funny CGN AGNJ RA CDX Us/Cdn WCI JH

William is without a doubt a “mama’s” boy, whom is also affectionately known as ‘Ball Face’ for the ever present orange ball in his mouth. William is spunky and cuddly and has a never ending desire to play. He simply ‘adores’ children and sits there with a stupid grin on his face, wagging his tail, BEGGING them to throw the ball for him.  He is also a retired Ottawa Therapy Dog.  He was very aptly named, he really does think he’s a pretty funny guy at times!

"Once upon a time there was a beautiful little girl... Lochnquay's MadRiver Fairytale"...

I feel very honoured and privileged to have been entrusted with this precious outgoing, inquisitive, confident and beautiful girl as the foundation for my kennel - MadRiver Tollers.

What a wonderful journey it has been. She has been a doting and loving mom of beautiful healthy puppies, and grand puppies.  She has strong work ethics and we have achieved much together.  I'm over the moon about our team work!

It is an ongoing and amazing enchanting journey!

CH Madriver's Will O' Wisp (Am/Cdn) WCI JH CD

Fia, my 'baby-baby' is the first 'keeper' puppy from one of Enya's litters.  She is a sweet and lively girl who loves nothing better than to please and play.  She is super snugly and believes that she is a lap dog.   She is extremely biddable, driven and oh SO MUCH FUN!

She is maturing into a beautiful girl and we are having a blast in field, agility, obedience and other sports.  She recently earned her CKC Canadian Championship and also picked up some Grand Championship points as well.  I can't wait to see what the future holds for us.  This little flickering fire light has a HUGE heart. 

Fia is also a mom of beautiful puppies and will be bred in 2020, when she comes into season.

Madriver's, Hello, Little Girl (Am/Cdn) WC

This is my first 'grand-baby' from Enya's first litter and mom Fernie.   Nymeria, Meria for short or 'lil Red', brings love and unbridled joy to our home.  This little 'direwolf' has a sweet temperament, is a very quick learner and has bags of drive to run and play.

This journey never ceases to amazing me.
