Sunday May 18th we said goodbye to Storm. Words can never express how you feel when you lose someone so special.
Storm was always ready to train and was one of the
most eager to please goldens. He lived his life with great desire and
intensity. He did everything with enthusiasm and loved to chase balls
and retrieve birds.
Mark Raycroft from Brown Trout Publishing Co loved
taking photographs of Storm . He has been featured every year since
2003 on many golden retriever calanders.
Storm would do anything you asked of him and was so
trusting. Jim often commented that he could heel him into a wall and he
would never see it since his eyes never left him. They both
accomplished so much in the obedience ring. They received multiple high
in trial awards and Storm in 2001 was one of the top obedience dogs in
Canada. He was #6 all breeds, #3 golden retriever and # 3 Sporting dog.
He was a fearless golden, Jim even had him do a sit
stay on the roof of our kennel building and he did it happily of course
because Jim asked him to.
Storm was an expert seadoo rider . Jim and Storm
would go 60 mph down Bob's lake, people at their cottages would come
down to the shore to watch the seadoo dog.
His greatest distraction in life was his tail which he would chase, catch and chase again going in the opposite direction.
Storm, you were the best. You truly were a once in a lifetime dog.
We love you and miss you always,
Jim, Judy and all of your Blue Heron Friends
