:no:Sad to report that "Presto" GMOTCH Windrows Do U Believe In Magic Am/Can WC AGN, CARO RXMCL, Hit of Hits winner, passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly. Presto was the top obedience dog in Canada in 2005. He had a wonderful relationship with his owner and trainer, Marie Sawford, and was quite the inspiration. He loved to work and loved to make Marie happy.

Oh, I felt such a pang when I read this bc I really admire Presto. Is he about ten? I first started following him when I tried to research/find a dog that had both Elysian and Topbrass- guess who? I am so very sorry for the owner- such a terrible loss.

He was eleven. I quite frequently got to admire him working as he demonstrated exercises in our classes. He'd be hanging out on his bed under the table in the training hall, and pop out tail a-wagging to show us all how to do something with absolute perfection. He and Marie set a standard that is hard to meet.

I haven't wanted to bug Marie or his breeder to ask just yet. All I know is that it was illness that came on suddenly, not an accident or such.

Sorry to read this. My thoughts are with Marie and her family. Rest well and play hard at the Bridge till your family meets back up with you sweet Presto.
