Briar Rose 8 1/2 years

My Beautiful Briar Rose

On February 18th at 11pm my heart shattered into a million pieces as I told my very best girl ‘I love you’ and let her slip away from me. It was one of the worse moments of my life.
Briar Rose was my special girl, my heart, my soul. She was my brightest star, my shadow, my life. Everyone that came here fell in love with Briar Rose. Her calm, loving nature, she would greet people and then just sit beside and gently lean on them….so she always got extra petting. Briar Rose just loved everybody she met.
With our pups, Briar Rose was ‘the Nanny Rose’. She was the first one the mums would allow in to see puppies. BrIar Rose loved sticking her head into the whelping box and having the pups nudge at her face and bite and lick at her ears. She would stand there so long tail wagging. She played with each and every litter of pups, she loved them all.
I still can’t believe she is gone, I miss her so. The porch swing will never be the same. My once in a lifetime girl….I love you Briar Rose.

Briar Rose is our Trio daughter who has completely stolen our hearts.
A confident young girl that is a real cuddler. We are
expecting many great things from this girl as she takes after her dam
in her working ability and eagerness to please. Briar Rose is presently
training in both obedience and field work and we are loving every moment together.

At 9 1/2 yrs old Briar Rose obtained her WCI title. This was after taking a break from retrieving for a number of years! I was just thrilled to see that for Briar Rose retrieving was like riding a bike…she picked up right where she left off years ago. I was so proud of my girly!
