Barnaby is my first duck toller. He has changed my world quite a bit, but all for the good. He is from Pikkinokka Kennels, bred-by Til Niquidet.
Barnaby is a lovely boy, both in looks and temperament. He has proven himself in the ring at specialties and all-breed shows. He currently is working as a therapy dog for the Kamllops School District, as a co-counsellor for elementary aged children.
