Kira's Pedigree

Return to Star Trek Litter

Kira was probably the closest dog-friend I have ever had. She absolutely adored me, even when we disagreed on methods of training, or other things. She produced two litters, the first one in August 1997, with CH Brushwynd's Spirit of America, CDX, JH. Her second litter, born in July 1999, was with a Hall of Fame dog, CH Grousemoor Jack In The Pulpit, UD, JH, MX, MXJ, WC, HOF, and it was with this litter that I found my "Dream". Kira earned her Flat-Coated Retriever Society's Hall of Fame with points earned solely by herself, and in fact, exceeded the points necessary. She was quick to learn, almost too quick! She did have her quirks - had certain fears for no apparent reason, plus was fearful of thunderstorms unless she was outside in them. She was one of the most agile dogs I've ever lived with, and taught me thousands of things as an agility handler. I shall never forget this special girl, nor underestimate what all she taught me in her 10 years.
