2001 - 2010

My sweet diva Diesel was diagnosed with bone cancer towards the end of summer; we made the difficult decision to let him go and spare him any further pain. He is sadly missed by all who knew him as a warm and loving soul.


2006 - 2012

Jabba died peacefully, but unexpectedly, in his sleep in September. We miss his sense of humour and playful nature. Future puppies have lost a great boy to introduce them to the pack.


2006 - 2013

Kilomonster was diagnosed with bone cancer in April - it is just so hard to let them go but you do what is best for them. He was a smart and happy boy that never missed an opportunity to make a new friend. I am still convinced he was part gazelle :)


2007 - 2013

The mookster fell asleep in the sun in her favourite place in the yard and never woke up. Shmoop was the dog I needed (as the saying goes not the dog I wanted :)) to teach me about sensitive and shy dogs. I hope she thinks she taught me well


2005 - 2006

Chili was our first Dogue de Bordeaux - I brought him home in March 2005. Our delight at finding a local breeder was cut short when Chili was diagnosed with sub-aortic stenosis (SAS) in the fall 2005. He was very sweet and devoted but unfortunately did not live to see his second birthday.


SAS is a genetic heart disease that can be passed from generation to generation even though the dogues may not develop the actual affliction. There is no genetic test for SAS so it is critical that any dogue that produces offspring with SAS be removed from a breeding program.




2012 - 2020

Buddhalicious succumed to cancer in the fall and I miss her dearly she had fire and determination and loved the show ring. She is a Canadian GCH and a US CH shown exclusively out of the BBE class to attain that goal. I miss her sense of humour every day.
