Halo was #10 Dachshund in Canada when she was 11 years old

The titles and the shows were fun.  

She enjoyed every minute in the ring
but that wasn't why she was so special.  
Halo was "the Queen" of our house.  

Quiet, well mannered and gentle.  

The love she added to our home may never be replaced.  

This is how we remember you Halo.

Stacey was born while we lived in Quebec.  My friend Ursula at Taxvalpar kennels wanted her so I let her go on the condition that she return to me to have a litter.  So she flew to Alberta.  When the time came she flew back to me in Ontario.  After her litter she flew back to Alberta.  She had a litter for Ursula and was ready to start her show career, but Ursula was unsure if the judges would like her because of her unusually dark brindle colour.  So I had her flown back to me to show. 
When she was almost finished her Championship, Stacey and I flew together to Alberta, got her last two points and her Canine Good Citzen award the same weekend.


She was very appropriately named

dam : Ch. Palakore's Remember Me 


From a litter of four, her three brothers always seemed to be piled on top of her,  so my son named her "Pillow".  
She became his dog and he showed her to her Championship, taught her obedience from a book and finished her CD title with a high in class award.  
She truly loved her Boy and would do anything for him.  She even thought she should defend him when

I tried to wake him.  She growled a warning 
and then changed her mind when she realized 
I was the one who fed her.

She is greatly missed
and will never be forgotten.

Once in a lifetime you are lucky enough to know  a dog like Spot.  He was the ultimate Showdog,  demanding that the judges look at the little black dog starting at the end of the hound group.  He didn't often stay at the end.  He could out-move any of the other hounds.


When he was born I didn't want another black and tan dapple male and put him up for sale.  The lady's money was on  the table, but she didn't have a fenced yard and didn't believe in confining a dog.  I gave her the money back and kept  him.  The hand of fate made sure he would stay with us.


He looked like a black  and tan, but a large gray spot between his front legs (that only his best friends would see), the lightning mark under his left ear and the silver smudge on the top of his head made him truly a dapple "disguised".


He won 11 puppy groups., 7 Group 4ths, 13 Group 3rds, 

10 Group 2nds and 8 Group 1sts.


In 72 career shows he placed in the group 52.8% of the time.   But more important than that, his tail never stopped wagging.  He never got tired, never had an off day.  He loved to show like no other dog before or since.


Even after he retired, every time he was bathed and groomed he would bounce at the door for days to go to the show.  He was ready.


We weren't ready for you to leave us Spot..........
you'll be with us in  our hearts forever.

June 6 1991 - Oct 10 2002


Joker lived up to  his name as my daughter's obedience dog. At one show, he anticipated the recall so had already failed, but when they went in for the sits and downs, Joker was feeling apologetic for getting Jennifer upset.  During the down, he laid down, crawled around in front of her to her other side and flipped over onto his back (so was now facing backwards).  She left him to go to the other side of the ring and he realized he couldn't see her, so he curled into a U shape and laid there, looking at Jennifer the entire 3 minutes upside down wagging his tail.  Even the judge cracked up.  The entire arena was laughing.  That is why my daughter NEVER shows in anything but conformation :)

Coco had just returned from being shown in the US.  He went into the backyard and jumped onto a picnic table that none of the other dogs had ever climbed on.  Then he jumped off.  HIs back was broken.  We hadn't realized a picnic table could be so dangerous.
