Ch. Gold Rush Brilliant Jewel CGC,HD, JH, FDj
Cricket was bred by PJ Parsons and Diane and Jerry Beale (now Diane Michaelson).
Cricket was a gift to me from my mentor and dear friend Gus Polley (Skidby English Setters). We lost Gus in 1995 and that was hard enough but having Cricket was like having a part of Gus with me always ... losing Cricket was the end of an era and the loss of a major part of my heart.
Cricket was a character her whole life! She still had the puppy "zoomies" up until the end (at age 14.5) and she even finished her CKC FDj title at 14+ yrs .. out running many young dogs! I miss her so much. :(
Am/Can Ch. Artworks Splash of Paint CGC
Splash was my "heart dog" - he was from my first litter and he taught me so much about not letting life pass you by.
From Best Puppy at the 1994 ESAA National, to Winners Dog at the 1996 ESAA National Host Specialty to Veteran Award of Merit in 2002 ... it just doesn't get any better.
He also forced me (in the hardest way) to learn about a disease I had never heard of before - hemangiosarcoma - a very malignant cancer of the blood vessels that manifested in his pericardium (heart). That horrid disease took him at age 9.5 - in the prime of his life. Rest well sweet, sweet boy.
Am/Can Ch. Milroy's Heart O'Gold CGC, Am/Can CD
Britt was my very first English Setter - and I was so very lucky to have had Norma Allen (Milroy's) entrust me with such a great one for my first one. Britt was a slow maturing girl and it wasn't until I made my ESAA National debut in 1994 that she made hers, too. It was a rather fun one for us ... she was awarded Winner's Bitch, Best of Winners (thanks to Eileen Hacket for showing her to the points!) and her son Splash was Best Puppy.
Britt let me learn so much on her and she blessed us with almost 15.5 yrs of loving companionship.
Deputy Midnight Tux
1986 - 1992
Tux was an exceptional lab. He embodied all that makes labs, well labradors! Enthusiasm, exuberance, power, grace and a silly personality!
Sadly, I lost Tux to the most horrible of canine diseases ... epilepsy. He was only 6 and half years old and it was so utterly tragic that it still haunts me today. We have to work to stamp this awful disease of out the canine population.
