Dart

11/20/2001 — 11/05/2008

Sylvia Horasek & Larry Wimmers

Dart came to us essentially as a rescue after her owner passed on. She had not had a lot of life experience in her 5 years and her first few weeks were a rough ride. But she settled in. She was a belly slute, Queen of the Farmer’s Market, and a terror to the birds who hung out in the bushes.We lost Dart to kidney failure due to Lyme’s disease. She was with us for less than 2 years but she will be forever in our hearts.

The 13 ½ years we shared with Ravin were wonderful and we can’t be anything but thankful for all the memories that she gave us. Ravin won her first point at her 1st show in 1990, and won her class at the National Specialty in 2003.
She leaves a legacy of descendants through her kids. Her elegance and soundness and “look at me” attitude will be seen for generations to come.
