(March 5, 1994 - July 31, 2008)
Idgie was born in Ohio, USA in 1994 where she was shown but unlike her champion mother and father she grew a little too big.
In 2002 she went to live in France for 6 months to avoid having to go into quarantine kennels and we visited her there several times. It was an exciting day when she could finally come to England to live with us and she quickly settled in with the others.
Unfortunately, Idgie's kidneys went into failure and we had to say goodbye to her on July 31, 2008. RIP and you will always be loved.
(Tragus Ice Atlantic X Tomarkus Brief Encounter)
Lizzie was purchased from Tomarkus whippets at 9 weeks old in 2001. It was never our intention to show her and she was a delight who never tired of playing fetch with a toy. However at 6 she became blind almost overnight and was diagnosed with SARDS. It was heartbreaking to see her confused but we were determined to help her all we could.
She has quickly adapted and she has learnt that "careful" means she is about to bump into something. She still loves to play and has her own squeaky toy which she can retrieve by sound and smell.
Being blind has not stopped her getting around the garden and she can still find the flowers to chew the pansies!!
Very sadly we lost Lizzy to kidney failure on Easter Sunday (2012). You remain in our hearts.
