Mother of the LL, NN and S litters.

GloryToo carried the black recessive. She did not carry the long coat recessive. 

GloryToo passed her Therapy Dog certification with TDInc (now Alliance of Therapy Dogs, Inc) in December 2014.  She had her AKC Therapy Dog title (THD), which requires 50 verified therapy dog visits, and her AKC Therapy Dog Advanced title (THDA), which requires 100 verified therapy dog visits.  She was close to  her Therapy Dog Excellent (THDX) title when I lost her suddenly to hemangiosarcoma.  She visited the nursing homes and participated in the Reading Dog program at Tongue River Elementary School in Ranchester, WY (about 10 miles from here) and was the Reading Dog for Holy Name School’s kindergarten class.  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 I wrote a series of 14 books covering GloryToo’s life from birth until 2022.  We published two of the books despite covid but then it became unfeasible to continue the series.

UKC Nosework titles:  PTN, PTA, PTS, PTM, PTE, Superior Exteriors, Superior Interiors, Superior Containers & Novice Vehicles

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 was working on her Elite and masters titles before she died. titles.

She also had her Canine Good Citizen title.

Glory Too was 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 had beautiful conformation and was naturally athletic.

Glory Too was a very serious dog who was always thinking.  She loved to train and picked things up very quickly.  After her  puppy kindergarten class, she participated in a puppy rally class before beginning what was her obviously favorite one: nose work.  She really liked to use her nose and was a naturally methodical searcher.
