Caskeys Persuader from Amberlight (Jay)
(Sh Ch Amberlight firecracker.....Caskeys Sandpiper.)
Jay was bred by Bob, Christine & Fiona Heron in 2001. They took a chance on using Firecracker although a clad carrier because they wanted to keep their lines going.
Jay was tested as clear, and after some time Christine agreed that he could come home with me. He was lighlty shown but had some success gaining a 2nd in Post Graduate at Crufts and also gained his stud book number at ISAE.
Christine used Jay on her Ch bitch Dunnygask Ginger spice which produced the well known top winning sire Caskeys Concept.
Jay has been used by a select few breeders and to this day his winning progeny include 3 uk sh ch and many cc winners.
Every time we had visitors Jay would sit on the stairs looking for the Girlies that he assumed were coming to him, even if they were not doggy people. If no Girly came through the door then he would have to investigate the front garden.
Jay has left huge gap in our lives but we know that he lives on through his many children. Jay touched the hearts of all who met him and I am proud to have owned such a wonderful natured gentleman.
R.I.P bear cub. Lots of love Mummy and Daddy xx.
