Ch Ferry de la Douce Plaine at Belamba
Bred by Yves Leteneur DOB 25/02/90
'Ferry' was imported from France along with sister 'Ch France'.
He had an illustrious show career winning 6 CCs & 4 RCCs (including Crufts), and was short-listed in the working group on several occasions.
His last outing was Crufts where he won the veteran class under Lorna England. He has many CC & RCC winning kids from a few selective matings.
He went to live with Stephanie & Philip Asher (Roger's sister & brother-in-law), where he enjoyed an acre garden to run in safely.
He was a truly sweet-natured dog, and a couch potato.
He died aged 13 1/2 from cancer of the tail gland.
He'll be missed by us all.
