Sh.Ch. Caskey's Concept at Aoibheanne JW
26.05.04 - 07.07.13
So Sorry to hear from owner, Eva Ciechonska, that she had lost Louis.
'Louis had a stroke and a suspected bleed into the brain.
Nothing could be done for him and I had to make the decision. He went very peacefully without any pain.
Silke's bitch Copper's Bubble of Joy, bred by Camilla and who had her all important 3rd on Sunday, was his 15th UK ShCh (subject to kc confirmation). To watch his children and grandchildren winning the major awards made me so very very proud.
In all Lou sired 31 UK litters and 4 overseas litters, two bred by Camilla Ostman in Sweden (repeat matings). One by Diana Van Der Valk in Holland and the 4th by Marta Margi in Hungary. From this there are 15 UK ShChs and 4 cc winners. Overseas from Copper's there are 4 International champions and a Russian champion. From Of the Red Empire there is one Dutch Ch and from Sangarrah there are 2 Hungarian Chs.
Louis success in the ring and as a sire are well documented but I was lucky to have lived with him. He was the dearest, sweetest dog with the most wonderful nature, easy going and laid back. Always smiling. Nothing phased him. He was a fridge raider and a counter surfer. No food was safe with him. I have so many wonderful memories. I have two of his children and a grandchild. He will always live on for me.'
Eva's favourite photo of Louis is shown above and the head study below was taken on his birthday.
On behalf of you all we pass on our deepest sympathy to Eva
