Good bye Ketil!

It was 5 short months that went by at an incredible speed... It all started while surfing the internet. As soon as I saw picture of Ketil, it was love at first sight. When I saw his pedigree I knew I needed to have this dog here with me. I was fortunate enough that both his owners entrusted me with him. They are lovely ladies and it was a delight to work with them! It was 5 months filled with lots of action! Ketil came in Canada as a "boy" and he left as a "man"!!! :-) He kept us very busy with shows and breeding scheduling 7 days a week! Everybody was involved in his show career, or wanted to know his latest achievements. Friendship I had before are now even stronger. I could have never done it without Jodi and Kim. They were Ketil's greatest supporters!
But our biggest blessing was to share 5 months of our life with his unique personality. Ketil is the epitome of self-confidence, calmnest and intelligence. It's hard to explain in few words. You have to live with him to understand what I mean. This dog has a strong aura which I have never encountered before... Now we understand why his owners see him as a very special dog!! He will be missed greatly here....
