"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose, all that we have loved deeply becomes a part of us." Helen Keller"
Arrow was such a big part of my life. We spent 9.5 years together in agility, disc, rally and herding. How I will miss her smile. Time will heal the pain of losing her but time will never erase her memory or the special place she holds in my heart.
On an early morning June 9th 2005 I held her in my hands, tiny 9 oz bundle who drew her firsts breaths cradled in my hands. She was one of four pups in the first aussie litter I bred. On February 5th 2015 cradled in my arms with me whispering how much I loved her and would miss her crazy face, she drew her last breath.
She grew up and be a dynamic, character filled aussie who was my companion, an intregate part of my family, a dog who never said never.
January 31st of 2015 she ran her last agility run. It was steeplechase, her favorite. Run fast, bark a lot and enjoy. Never crossed my mind that Febraury 5th 2015 (just 5 days later) she would leave this world. CANCER the silent killer. Her drive and high energy never changed until the day before her passing.
Arrow was a very special dog. Arrow is from Crickets first litter, was full of character and had a lot to say about most things, especially concerning agility courses and the dog walk. She barked when she ran just for the sheer joy of running. One of her unique traits was she wiggled on her back
(no matter what the surface) just before every run. Then she jumps up and shakes and barks as if to say "Lets Go!"
Shewas an amazing dog. Easily finished her conformation title going BOB over specials. She was challenging in many ways but her "joie de vive" was always in the forefront of eveything she did. No half measures for this girl.
She easily obtained her herding titles and her agility titles in AAC and CKC agility.
Her love of the frisbee was evident in her disc titles and she always wowed the crowds with her "airs above the ground" when catching discs.
She was lovable, good with other dogs and puppies and loved my grandaughters. She was above all else, my very special irriplaceble girl and we had a most wonderfu connection.
