Hunter was given to Allen and I when he was 15 months old and the Silveira family (Hisaw Kennels) had just finished his ASCA Championship. Rhonda Silveira gave him to us a week after we had lost Roper (see Roper's page). Rhonda and Ken thought that Hunter would help with the healing process. Hunter was a godsend - he didn't replace Roper but he sure did help. He is the most loving dog and would be happy just sitting in your lap all day. I then went on and took a few BOB's at ASCA shows with him and started showing AKC.

Spirit of An Aussie

I was standing on a hillside, in a field of blowing wheat
And the spirit of an Aussie, was lying at my feet.
He looked at me with kind dark eyes, an ancient wisdom shining through
And in the essence of his being, I saw love there too.
His mind did lock upon my heart, as I stood there on that day
And he told me of this story, about a place far away.
I stood upon the hillside, in a field of blowing wheat
And in a twinkling of a second, his spirit left my feet.
His tale did put my heart at ease, my fears did fade away
About what lay ahead of me, on another distant day.
"I live among God's creatures now, in the heavens of your mind
So do not grieve for me, my friend, as I am with my kind.
My collar is a rainbow's hue, my leash a shooting star
My boundaries are the Milky Way, where I sparkle from afar.
There are no pens or kennels here, for I am not confined
But free to roam God's heavens, among my Aussie kind.
I nap the day on a snowy cloud, gentle breezes rocking me
And dream the dreams of earthlings, and how it used to be.
The trees are full of liver treats, and tennis balls abound
And Milkbones line the walkways, just waiting to be found.
There even is a ring set up, the grass all lush and green
And everyone who gaits around, becomes the Best of Breed.
For we're all winners in this place, we have no faults, you see
And God passes out those ribbons, to each one, even me.
I drink from waters laced with gold, my world a beauty to behold
And wise old dogs do form my pride, to amble at my very side.
At night I sleep in an angel's arms, her wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance about us, as stardust falls on thee.
So when your life on earth is spent, and you stand at Heaven's gate
Have no fear of loneliness, for here, you know I wait".
