Today we held you in our arms and said goodbye as we watched you crossed
over the Rainbow Bridge.
Even though our hearts are breaking, we just wanted to
thank you for all the wonderful years and memories you have given us.
Thank you for literally stumbling into
our lives, enriching our souls and opening up our hearts and minds to such
an amazingly wonderful breed.
Because of you, it changed the course of our lives
I can still remember the first time we watched you run
in an open field and being in complete awe of your beauty, your grace,
your speed and your power.
Thank you for your constant companionship and
unconditional love over the last 14.5 years , you were always there with
a lick and a cuddle when we needed it.
Thank you for your roo-roo's and your silly antics,
they will remain forever as cherished and blessed memories and it will
bring a smile to our faces when we hear those same roo-roo's and see those
same silly antics in your children, and your children's children.
Thank you most of all for your beautiful daughters,Tempo
and Teema (who sadly crossed the bridge before you), your grand-children
Epic, Stevie, Pocket, Latigo, Shooter and your great granddaughter(
Farriss) who remain here with us at Lynallan. Without you, they wouldn't
be here and you will live on forever through each of them and each of
their children's children.
You ruled them all with an iron paw, but you loved each
and everyone of them dearly and made sure each and every one of them
always had clean ears, even if you had to pin them down to do it.
Over the years we have watched you grow old
gracefully. We know this last year has been the hardest for you, as your
legs and body were not as strong as they used to be and even a slight wind
would knock you over. You had difficulties in walking, getting up or
laying down was a chore and often we heard your soft whines of pain. We
tried to ease your pain as best we could, but the past few weeks you have
let us know that the time has come to say goodbye. So with great sadness
and many, many tears we made the heart wrenching decision to let you go
and make your last days on earth as special and as comfortable as
possible, spoiling you with whatever your heart desired and showing you
how much we love you and how much you have meant to us. So this afternoon
we held you in our arms and told you how much you have meant to
us as you breathed your last breath and your soul crossed peacefully over
the bridge. So goodbye our sweet girl and we cannot thank you enough for
all the joy and wonderful memories you have given us.
We know in our hearts that Chester, Sweetie, your
daughter Teema and your grandaughter Boots are all there at the bridge to
welcome you, so you can all run in paradise together.
Run fast, run free and wait for us at the bridge, for
one day we shall all be together again.
Rest in peace sweet angel.

Ivy came to live with us in 1994, but she didn't make her
show debut until August of 1996. Ivy and her handler hit the ring with
a bang, gaining her Canadian Championship very quickly with BOB's over
specials, group placements - including a Group 1st from the classes under
Mrs. Michelle Billings. After her short specials career, she was
retired to the whelping box and couch.
Ivy had a very classic head, with a beautiful neck and
shoulder placement, gorgeous outline and clean flowing movement.
