Here's To An Old Dog, Eh?
Congratulations are in order for a special senior dog-citizen:
CANADIAN CH SILVERWOOD'S VICTORY LANE, "Tory", age 12 (13 in October!), wins BIG in her home country, Canada! Shown above with owner-handler Ann McPhee of Salt Springs Island, BC, winning Best Veteran In Sweepstakes! AND she won the only Award of Merit! How cool is that?!?! Tory is bred and co-owned by Marge Stovall, Silverwoods Aussies, WA. Thanks to CKC judge Michael Hill for this sterling win.
Here's Tory loving every minute back in the ring:
You rock, Tory!
Tory is a daughter of our late, CH EBBTIDE I'LL REMAIN CD, "Remy", seen below winning an AWARD OF MERIT at the USASA NATIONAL SPECIALTY in Vallejo, CA in April 1995:
Remy still holds a very dear place in our hearts. This kind, charismatic, honest, elegant, biddable, sound, extremely handsome dog was thoroughly enjoyed and loved by all who knew him in his lifetime: March 1991-October 2005. Remy came by his attributes honestly: His mother was the incredibly talented, vivacious, multiple Premier CH Nationals bitch, High In Trial Obedience winner CH EBBTIDE A BEE IN YOUR BONNET CD, "Gatsbee". His sire, and Remy was from just his second litter, the legendary HOF CH MY MAIN MAN OF HEATHERHILL.
Where does the time go?
