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 two stunning litters, from the second of which I kept her beautiful blue daughter Abi. 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..
