"G" Litter born 02/25/2009 (Dutch CH Swallowsflight Raven Lion Lad NVK 07 x Victory’s Clear Sailing CDX RE MH OA NAJ NF WCX HOF) 5 girls & 3 boys
So far, everything I could ask for in that temperaments are delightful and everyone eager to work and play.
Litter is on the small side overall, but structure and type quite good overall. So far 3 for 3 for Excellent hip rating and several others Good. 1 is gonioscopy affected.
2 girls have vaginal strictures, 2 are fine, the other 1 girl has not been examined.
2 benign histiocytomas, both on a foot, both went away.
We did just lose our Gabby at age 5 to what the vet *thinks* was adenocarcinoma, but no pathology was done, in addition she had pyometra. We are devastated by this loss and have not had such an early loss since our A litter... Tragically and unbelievably, Splash was also diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, also at 5 and we lost her several months later. We are devastated by this news and can’t understand how this happens in such a beautiful litter with such good longevity in the pedigree. This is the kind of news that makes you think about never breeding again...
We have CHs, others major pointed; Obedience titles; Hunting Retriever titles including multiple WCXs, a MH, multiple Qual JAMs, and Agility titles including our first MACH!
Ezel was diagnosed with Cushings in December 2016.
Tragically we lost Canyon so quickly to what was probably Malignant Histiocytic Sarcoma in June 2017…
We lost Sierra in February 2018 to IMT.
My wonderful Cruisey died in Feb 2020 just days shy of 11 to cardiac arrest, most likely to hemangiosarcoma of the heart.
We lost Grace in Feb 2021 and lost fun loving Ezel in August 2022, both good long lives, but never enough! We lost wonderful Gabe Nov 2022, a lovely long life at 13 years 8 months, but of course we want more don't we....
Dad Naik was 11 when he died and Mama Solo died just before her 15th birthday.
