see GloryToo’s temperament test results (7 weeks)
GloryToo carries the black recessive. She does not carry the long coat recessive.
GloryToo passed her Therapy Dog certification with TDInc (now Alliance of Therapy Dogs, Inc) in December 2014. She has her AKC Therapy Dog title (THD), which requires 50 verified therapy dog visits and is working on her AKC Therapy Dog Advanced title (THDA), which requires 100 verified therapy dog visits. She visits the nursing homes and participates in the Reading Dog program at Tongue River Elementary School in Ranchester, WY (about 10 miles from here). When I asked several of the kids why they preferred to cuddle with GloryToo rather than read to her, they said they didn’t like the books the school provided. When I asked if they would read books if I wrote some about her, they enthusiastically agreed, so as of March 2020, I have written a series of 14 books covering GloryToo’s life from birth until now. Those books have generated a lot of interest outside of the Reading Dog circle and are available for purchase.

Glory passed her PT1 & PT2 tests in June 2014. This made her eligible to compete for serious nose work titles, but there weren’t any trials until summer 2015. The reason is that UKC (United Kennel Club) took over nose work competition from United Nosework (the group which created this new canine sport) on July 1, 2014. They took the next six months to enter all the United Nosework titles into their own system. When there was finally a trial in our area in 2016, GloryToo had puppies, so it was 2017 before she could try for any titles. In May 2017 she passed two more pre-tests and Novice Exterior; in October 2017 she passed the final pre-test and received her Advanced Exterior and Novice Interior titles. She came in heat six weeks early and missed the October 2018 nosework trial, but in May 2019 she received her Advanced Interior and Novice Container titles.
She also has her Canine Good Citizen title.
Glory Too is from the fifth generation of my female line. She is from the GG litter of 2014 (Lively bred to Chaos) and is named after her great-great-grandmother, whose call name was Glory. Her great-grandmother was Jubilee, and her grandmother was Quinta. She has beautiful conformation and is naturally athletic.
Glory Too is a very serious dog who is always thinking. She loves to train and picks things up very quickly. After her puppy kindergarten class, she participated in a puppy rally class before beginning what is her obviously favorite one: nose work. She really likes to use her nose and is a naturally methodical searcher and has begun tracking.
