THE QUEEN IS DEAD
Our beloved Leada was laid to rest 6th February 2011
Known as Leada of Calvary she was the matriarch of the house pack who also grieve her passing. Leada gave 13 years of humour and love to us.She was bridesmaid at our wedding, held at Calvary Hospital, Kogarah where she was a volunteer working in palliative care. So many memories and neither time nor tears will erase her from our hearts. She was all that is fabulous in a dog and also had a zany sense of humour and great reasoning ability. Leada was the mother of service dogs, show champion, tracking champion and produced Police Dog Titan and Police Dog Carts, both killed in the line of duty. Despite the pain, we are eternally grateful this kid came to us for we would not have missed the experience and joy she gave us for anything. One cannot have extreme happiness without also knowing deep sorrow. Thanks Old Girl for being all that you were. Mum and Dad.

Reigndrop crossed the Rainbow Bridge 14.5.11
I would like to thank the kind people who have sent floral tributes and cards of sympathy regarding the tragic loss of my beloved Reign. Many years have passed and the pain is no less, but it is lovely to know people care about the loss of this wonderful girl. Thank you.
My beloved Drepresh Royal Sovereign BSC1 Tracking Dog has gone over the Rainbow Bridge. Reign loved life, kids, dogs, swimming and fun. Most of all she loved me from the day our eyes met, and I loved her. Her death was unexpected after whelping and it is impossible to comprehend how one so vibrant, healthy and zaney has gone. She went without a whimper in her sleep her surviving new borns with her. I am grateful we had a holiday together recently where she romped and played in the creek and snuggled up to kids everywhere. She waited in the wings to take the place of our old girl, the last Queen of the pack, Leada. But her reign was to be short lived, just three months as leader of the house pack. The place is so still without her bounding, laughing, playing and cuddling. The pack is deeply mourning her passing, having lost two pack leaders in so short a time. How can one recover from such a loss of a healthy young dog? I don't think we really can. Reign, I will love you forever. You were my pride and joy.
Your dark brown eyes are etched in my memory. I imagine you at the gate, at the door, at my bedside, on my feet and under my arm in the office. I cannot say goodbye.

GREATLY MISSED ALWAYS
Beychief Massai Drummer TD. Known as Chief 3, he also held the title of Canine Good Citizen, Delta Society.
Sometimes they go just too early. Loved very much by his Dingo friend Mingga who has also crossed Rainbow Bridge.
Jaega was purchased from Blacktown Pound in 1987 and trained for hospital work in the Canterbury area. He was a great hit with patients and staff. He gained the titles of Companion Dog and Tracking Dog.
Jaega's first human friend died and he was sent to the pound where nobody wanted him. Mr A. Candlish an obedience judge, worked there at the time and did not want him put to sleep. We were looking for a security dog that had a great nature to work in hospitals controlling any "baddies" that was safe with staff and patients. Jaega served us well and deserved his chance at life. We never knew his parentage but that did not matter. A dog is on this earth because of human beings. It is for us to ensure they are loved and cared for regardless of a piece of paper. They still give us all they have to offer in pure love and friendship and unswerving devotion to duty.

Champion Beychief Crusader Emblem TD
SON OF *TRACKING CHAMPION DAMAUREN LYRICAL APPEAL AZ
Our beloved Crusader died July 9th, 2010. Litter brother of PD Titan . Crusader was sold as a puppy and we later rescued him after he sustained multiple fractures and injuries before he was four months old. He was not expected to walk properly ever again but true to his breeding his courage pulled him through a very difficult twelve months and he beat the odds. He was shown in the All Breeds ring and won BOBs and also placed 2nd at Sydney Royal. He also gained his Tracking Dog Title. We loved him dearly and although his life was cut short (9 years), he gave us great pleasure and loved going shopping in the car and playing in the paddocks. His injuries did prevent him from ever doing jumps and tunnels, but he delighted in obedience and playing. Rest well son, you did your breed proud and will always miss you.
