From our Facebook page, June 2014: "This weekend Artaius (formerly Arrow from Yasmin's litter 8-16-05) earned his MACH 4 (Master Agility Champion x 4). He now has 7 championship titles to his name (4 in AKC and 3 in CPE) plus a bunch of additional titles. He is a joy to live with and makes me happy every day!"

From our Facebook page, December, 2013: "Artaius (on the left) sends Happy Howliday wishes to GLBCR and all of the amazing people who rescue & foster!!! Extra special thanks to Sheila for giving him a shot & life & helping to bring him into my life!!"

From our Facebook page, June, 2013: "Artaius and I just got back from CPE Nationals (agility) in Springfield, Ohio. We had a great time and he had a perfect weekend - qualifying in every run with no faults. He earned himself High in Trial Rescue dog and High in Trial Michigan team. He is an amazing dog and I am SO very lucky to have him in my life!! Sheila Fawcett - thank you for fostering Yasmin and her pups! I am so appreciative of you and the Great Lakes BC Rescue every day!!"
