It is with the greatest of sadness that we announce Anita Strikwerda, the founder and owner of Shepherd Hill Kennels, has sadly lost her battle with cancer.

The world is so much better having known her but she left us way too soon.

Mind you, she will probably keep heaven waiting because she'll be having way too much fun playing with all the dogs at the rainbow bridge.

Thank you Anita for your love, your light and your strength. You are an inspiration to us all.

You will be missed.
