DARIAN SILVER FLUTE - A TRIBUTE

Flute had a sizzling start to her show career, achieving 9 Crufts` qualifiers from her puppy classes (brother Cap, pictured with Flute above, finished co-Top Dog Puppy 1994 BCC of GB).

She then retired from the show ring, but went on to produce some stunning puppies, among them her beautiful blue daughter Abi, who stayed with us. Flute spent a lot of time 'taking care' of her elderly mother, my beloved Sunny & succeeded her as matriarch. As she became frail, she resigned from that position, content to let the younger ones lead the way. She was always a wonderful presence in our lives though & one that will be sorely missed.

On the morning of 20th April 2007, with the sun shining & the birds singing her requiem, my sweet Flute was given sleep to save further suffering. She runs free at Rainbow Bridge with her dignity intact & that inimitable smile in her eyes.

She leaves a wonderful legacy behind, but I miss her terribly. Each loss breaks my heart a little more, but each small break shows me how much I gain by loving & being loved..
