Cassie Pedigree Cass Memorial

On 14 February 2008 we lost our sweet and special Cass Cass - she was desexed following her last litter and suffered a heart irregularity as she was coming out of anaesthesia. Despite heroic efforts - defibrillation, open heart massage - her ventricle had become electrically disconnected and she could not be revived.

 

Cassie debuted in the ring as a very confident, full-of-herself baby, but unfortunately a couple of scares around the ring from other dogs later she became quite timid at shows.  My gratitude in huge measures to Mark Jackson, Dale Blinco, Shane Lambley, Mick Goulding and the many others who worked with Cass to get her over her fears. She ended up wagging her tail in the ring and improved at every show over the years!  Even with her lack of panache in the ring Cass took a class in-group from every age bracket s as well as Puppy in Show at Specialty.  Cass was a glorious mover with a lovely ground covering stride and easy action while maintaining solid topline.  She was an exuberant lover of people and scared some visitors by launching herself at them at full speed.  Cass took a long time to mature both physically and emotionally but took over as 'Mum' in residence to her half sister Mtarni and her three litters all proved Cass as a vigilant but playful Mum to her own progeny. Cass lives on in her son Ch Starridge Point Taken AI - who has now sired a litter with Kea.
