Noodles was a once in a lifetime friend and companion, the ultimate competitor in every venue she tried and the ultimate buddy to Bjorn, her special guy.  She achieved many great things in competition but her #1 achievement was as an ambassador for purebred dogs.  Born from the second litter we bred from CH Vision Keep The Faith ROM CGC, she was the sweetest and happiest dog we ever bred or owned. Mischievous and smart, no unlocked food bin was safe from her determination.
