Denk aan het toch goede leven dat Jacky gehad heeft, een hond denkt simpel en geniet van het moment, voor haar is er geen morgen alleen vandaag is het moment dat voor haar telt. Pijn lijden is iets wat een hond niet begrijpt, dus jullie hebben de juiste beslissing genomen
Denk aan de mooie en goede momenten (en dat moeten er vele zijn geweest) die jullie met haar hebben mogen meemaken en houdt haar in je gedachten, dan zul je merken dat je nog  je hele leven plezier kunt hebben van het feit dat zij in jullie bezit is geweest.

Bart en Mirjam van Maren. of the Hellacious Acres.



She was one of the most beautiful bitches that I
ever had the pleasure of judging. There are very few bitches of her quality
around and I know that she was very special to you. Thinking of you. Anne 

Mrs.Anne Falconer (GB) Siatham


You know I thought so highly of your wonderful lady

So honoured to have judged her

Mr.Ray Strudwick (GB) Burpham


You will remember all the best of breeds the groups and the enjoyment that they brought to us and in time to come we can be proud of the progeny they sired and know they may be gone but not forgotten

Liam Moran (Irl) Woodmore



Even if she was a great champion, a beautiful girl, she will be sadly missed of course !
Whatever are the memories, you will keep plenty of them and you will be proud to have owned such a girl !
With such a lovely name....

Marie-Alpais (Fr) Cheek to Cheek


So sorry to hear your sad news. She was a lovely bitch and Kate well
remembers how well she looked and showed at the World show in
Brussels where Kate gave her first in a big Open Bitch Class. We know
how hard it is to lose one of our Golden friends.

Kate & Jim Crosbie (GB)
Garbank & Lislone

They are still with you even if you can't see them, they are held deep within
your heart with great memories to share with others again and again. Know
that I feel your loss!
Paula at HyVallee Kennels, USA


I was so sorry to hear about your beautiful bitch, I remember her well when
I was judging in Germany some years ago now.
I know how much you will miss her but it is so nice to know that she lives
on through her family and you will have many happy memories of her.

Barbara Gell (GB) Leightfield


Sorry to hear you lost your girl - our thoughts are with you.
What a lovely achievement, though, to have gained her 14th CC at the age of 9'5

Suzi and Garry (GB) Summeramba


So sorry to hear about your girl, John. There
is nothing that can be said to make the
situation any better, except to say our
thoughts are with you.
I'm sure she had the best life possible.

 Julie Merrick (GB) Stormerick


Was so sorry to hear of your loss of Blissful, 10 years is not old and I am sure you expected to have her for a few more years. I am sure you must have some wonderful memories of her, treasure them. 

Sally Roberts(GB) Vanzela and Rachel Rains (GB) Gunhills


M'n medeleven met het verlies van jullie prachtige Jackie.

Jullie weten hoe ik haar altijd bewonderd heb, als ze in de ring was zag je altijd een

happy meid, konstant met haar staartje zwieren;

Het is nog veel te jong, maar ja zo is het altijd; Sterkte aan jullie beide, Stéphane.

Stéphane de Ridder (B) Spencheal

Jacky was een fantastische hond: ze had een geweldig karakter, ze was een show-girl, ze was gewoon alles ..... een echte Golden !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anne-Marie Schellekens(NL) Treverwood

So sorry to hear of your sad loss.
may the wonderful memories of your very special times together bring you a little comfort in the days ahead .
we can not bring them back but we can thank our lucky stars that we shared their lives and that they enriched  ours.
kind regards
