Loved and Lost

CH LEGEND'S RHYTHM AND BLUES

Domino was a singleton with our second litter. Having a singleton was again another valuable learning experience. Domino lived with my daughter, Jenna, and Logan. This boy was loved like a child and demanded as such with his cheek laid against your lips so you would smooch on him.

Our hearts were shattered losing Dom at an early age and so unexpectedly. Dom was taken from us by cardiac tapenade due to a chemodectoma on his heart. This condition is usually found by accident when looking deeper into another issue. Dom was never sick and enjoyed his days right to the end. He was one special boy and will forever be missed and be held deep in our hearts. I know that I will be looking for that demand for a smooch when I see him at the bridge.

DaVinci

CH LEGEND'S PAINT ME A HIGH END PORTRAIT

DaVinci is a litter mate to Ernie. He is highly curious boy that loves to explore and be busy with you. He intensely watches your face and what you do. He is my extreme jumper. He will be on top of my hot tub if I don't pull the steps. He leaps from the floor over the back of my couch. He can't keep him planted on the ground. This isn't good for his patellas but you wouldn't know it.

Our hearts were surely not ready for yet another devastating loss of a young boy. This has crushed us and put me in a funk. One day I will write more here....but today is not that day as the tears still readily flow.

CH SUNNYACRE'S TURBO TENANCIOUS DREAMS

Turbo was our "starter" Boston Terrier. We did well with Turbo considering we did not get him from a show breeder and he was chosen based on our studies of the breed standard. Turbo earned FCI, UKC, and AKC champion titles. This character of a dog taught our family much and gave us a firm foundation in which to build our knowledge and skills. We are also very thankful for Catharine Brey-Marler for her encouragement to get out there with him and try it. We sure will miss our OG and forever be grateful for all the wonderful adventures over the years.

BISS GCHB CH RIO'S OCHO LOCO

Ocho came to us to be my daughter's "fun" dog and our foundation stud dog. He very quickly became more that we could have expected. We were very fortunate that his breeders to allowed him to be part of our beginning. This dog taught us so much in the show world and propelled us to keep striving forward.

Ocho was a Best in Specialty winner; Best of Opposite at the 2013 BTCA National in Chicago, IL under Judge Ken Roux; Runner-Up Boston Terrier of the Year at the 2015 BTCA National in Lancaster, PA. Ocho also held a Canadian Kennel Club Grand Championship and was nationally ranked in 2015.

CH RIO'S DRESSED TO THE NINES DREAM ROM

Elle was our first Boston bought as a show and breeding prospect. She was part of our foundation of Legend's Bostons. Elle has earned her Register of Merit (ROM) for producing champions. She was small but she was mighty. Elle ruled the Legend's Boston Kingdom. I guess Grandma does know best!
