We tragically lost Rosemary minutes before we left to drive her mother to Canada, to be bred for her last litter.  We received the phone call as we were locking the door to the house to leave, her leather leash broke and she was hit by a car.  This litter became the "Rose" litter in her memory.  Rosemary touched the hearts of everyone she met - she not only was my "heart dog"  she was David's "heart dog". 

There will never be another like her!

(Ch. Elysian A-Few Perrier, LCM, CGC, ROMX x Innuendo's Rhumba Girl)

Breeders: William and Jennifer Love, Chris Durance & Glenda Durance
Owners: Bill and Tasia Graves and Chris Durance

Peaches was in my opinion . . . perfection. 
Those that saw her never forgot her. 
She was a dog that when gaited you never felt her at the end of the lead . . . 
literally she floated.
If she were a horse you could ride her all day long. 
She was exquisite to look at, as well as, being balanced and houndy. 
You knew she was a dog that would survive on her own in the wild but she was dripping with elegance.

There has been no other like her!
One could only hope to produce her again - her time with us was short and her death unfortunate.
I have only a couple photographs of her as her owner got out of dogs.
