Some our Beloved Friends who Crossed over the Rainbow Bridge
Green's Sony - "Sonny"
Sonny came to us as a rescue. His owners didn't know what to do with him as he had a mind of his own when it came to hunting and staying out of trouble with the girls! They brought him in to be euthanized. We didn't think his sins were bad enough for that judgement. He had a couple of issues, with a very arthritic elbow and he had not been neutered. We couldn't do anything about his terrible elbow, but we could about the other problem. After about 6 months, he started to settle in and soon became a beloved family member and hunting companion. He hunted hard despite his bad elbow and his antics kept us entertained and he hunted until his final year as he approached 16, though he did slow down quite a bit the last couple years. He passed just a few months shy of his 16th birthday. He is dearly missed.
Sharpshooter's Sun and Shade - "Shady"
Shady came to us through the generosity of Sharpshooter's Kennels. We were grateful for the opportunity to bring a dog whose pedigree was filled with NAVHDA Versatile Champions into our program. Our vision for her contribution to our program was cut short when she unexpectedly developed medical complications and passed away before her first birthday. We were devastated as this bright eyed, ambitious little girl was making great progress in her training and intense personality projected great things to come in the field. She was also very attentive to us and playful around the house. We were very disappointed not to see the full potential of this little dynamo. She is missed.
