A special tribute to

ASCA/AKC CH Gitalongs Desert Moon of Hisaw
"Tessie"

12/10/1994 ~ 5/6/2008

Producer of Champion, Agility, Obedience, & Flyball Titled Offspring

Rest in peace beautiful Tessie, you've left us a wonderful legacy in your kids,
grandkids and great-grandkids.

Native Spirit Poem

 

A long time I have lived with you

And now we must be going

Separately to be together.

 

Perhaps I shall be the wind

To blur your smooth waters

So that you do not see your face too much.

 

Perhaps I shall be the star

To guide your uncertain wings

So that you have direction in the night.

 

Perhaps I shall be the fire

To separate your thoughts

So that you do not give up.

 

Perhaps I shall be the rain

To open up the earth

So that your seed may fall.

 

Perhaps I shall be the snow

To let your blossoms sleep

So that you may bloom in the spring.

 

Perhaps I shall be the stream

To play a song on the rock

So that you are not alone.

 

Perhaps I shall be a new mountain

So that you always have a home.

When Tessie stepped into the ring at the age of 2 months she knew she was a show doggie! She went on to finish her ASCA Championship at the tender age of 14 months followed by her AKC Championship.

Tessie, our Champion Producer, is the dam to some wonderful dogs. Tessie's son ASCA CH Lakehills Fly Me To The Moon "Brisbee" is our second "homegrown" Champion here at Lakehills...Brisbee finished his Championship at 2 years of age.  Also, you can see pictures and read more about Tessie's wonderful offspring by visiting our Future Stars Boys, Future Stars Girls, and also the Lakehills Companions and Their New Families pages.

The magnificent painting shown above is by renowned artist Mr. Steve Hubbell who is a long time AKC judge as well as an artist. Mr. Hubbell chose Tessie's pups to portray in this painting and we believe he has done a wonderful job of portraying them! Limited edition prints of this lovely painting are available.

All titles awarded by ASCA unless otherwise noted.
