A sad day - CH Loteki Clairvoyant 7-3-95 to 4-26-10

Today, started as no one wants a Monday morning to begin. I had to help Claire pass over. It was a very tough decision, but she had lost her wagging tail. I did what she loved best and that was to hold her in my arms.

It's been a difficult several months to make sure she would eat, as she became more and more selective about what she ate. We got very creative, but she would wag and be so happy to see whatever you came up with. Saturday morning she enjoyed vanilla ice cream.

Claire and her brother, Telly, CH Loteki Foretell The Future, were the last litter of my dear, Gypsy, CH Loteki Denzel Fortuneteller DOD. They were a fabulous litter and did their dam proud.  They were the first litter of their sire, Charles, BISS A/C CH Loteki Good Time Charlie, SOM.

Sadly, Claire had only one living puppy, Noah, who lives a grand life in an only dog home.  I was lucky to have her grace our home for all of her years.

Claire will be missed by us.  She loved sitting on the couch curled up on my lap or sitting on Terry.  She was a grunt-er and would give big sighs when she was settled into her position.  She was a grand old lady, sweet and happy. I will miss her dark eyes and her mush face, but mostly I will miss her sweet demeanor and her wagging tail.

Gunny wins HIT

Mary Waller (MN) wrote that her Gunny (Loteki Just Blew Into Town, CD) competed at the ASCA Trial in Hugo, MN.  He earned a first in Novice with a 198.5, which was High In Trial as well as High In Other Breed.

At ASCA you can move your dog up if they earn their degree, so at the second trial, Gunny moved up to Open A and earned 1st in Open with a 198.

What a great weekend!

Mary Gail Holcombe (MS) writes Loteki Just Be A Gentleman CDX was successful in earning his first UD leg in Little Rock on March 27th. 

Mary Gail writes, "We finally did it. . He had a respectable 194 in Utility A and won the class!  We continue to work on the little things that kill you on points!! We were both so excited we practically danced out of the ring. We had many friends there who were waiting outside the ring for us with hugs and pats of congratulations.

I know this doesn't sound like much to some who have been in this a long time, but for a Novice A person with her Novice A dog this was HUGE. He got an extra treat for dinner and so did I !!!
 Sunday didn't go quite as well. Rascal missed his sit signal but performed the rest of the exercises nicely. Signals continue to be our chief nemesis.  I had entered him in Open B for the first time in quite some time, and he qualified. So that was good for both of us."

CONGRATULATIONS, Mary Gail and Rascal.  I am so proud of what you are accomplishing!  I am sure you will have a new Utility degree to report very soon!
