" Torie" Oakridge's Lady In Red,CD,was what the meaning of Champion was. She would carry in the feed bucket when I did kennels,get the Sunday paper (never through the week,we still have no idea how she knew it was Sunday). Help raise 2 human kids,1 and 1/2 grandkids(he was 2 when she left us) two litters of her own,and several litters that were not hers,but she was sure she could do a better job then their Moms,and probably could have. She tolerated my mistakes in obedience training and when she got that CD,I think she was very glad I'd finally quit tormenting her. She was willing to try to do Anything asked of her,she trusted us that much. She will always be in our thoughts,hearts and in the everyday things that go on here at home. She can never be replaced,after all,how can you replace a friend who gave you unconditional love,and asked nothing in return? You may not have had the Ch. in front of your name,but there has never been a greater Champion then you ,my friend. OAKRIDGE'S LADY IN RED,CD 1985 - 2001 Gone ,but not forgotten.
