    Default HRCH-TANKS ALOT FOR THE DANCE- MH (4/18/97-4/11/07)

    I want to thank all of you for your heart felt wishes for both DANCY and me. After a 15 minute fishing stint, (she loved to fish) my little girl passed away peacefully in my arms at 10:40 this morning. I write with an incredibly heavy heart, while reminising and second guessing every move either she or I made over the last 10 years. Dance never met a stranger and was ready to lick anyone willing to accept. She LOVED me no matter how hard I was on her. She was the first dog that I trained completely from 7 weeks to her MH. Having to overcome my inabilities she still earned her HRCH by the age of 2, and had 4 straight Master passes before her 3rd birthday. She just happened to decide that it was just too tempting to sit still on the 3rd bird of the 3rd series 3 weekends in a row back in 2000. Nontheless, she made me proud. She was bred to FC/AFC Dare to Dream twice, and is the dam of FC-Bayou Teche Tex, 3 more QAA dogs (one with an Open win- Butch's Dream Code of TCR), and several HRCH/MHs. Dancy was a special girl, and all that know and love her will truly miss her. Rest in Peace my little "Dancy Dew"

    She sounds like such a wonderful, "good" dog. My heart breaks for you.

    David so sorry to hear of your loss. I met you once at Hendricks Kennels and know one of your dog's pups very well (Kate owned by Dale Willard). Kate is extremely talented...im sure much of which came from her mom.

    Once again...so sorry...my thoughts are with ya.

    Dave & I remember watching you with Dancy many times at one test or another. and I remember worrying at the time that our Dancer might have to honor with your Dancy or vice-versa.

    So sorry to hear that you have lost her, but she is in a better place now, free from any suffering. May you find comfort in that.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Yes, she was, and will always be a special dog. A year or so ago, a few guys got together one hunting trip, and the topic of blind retrieves at the Master Nationals came up. One of the guys asked, "of all the hunt test dogs you've seen, what dog would you want to run a "money" blind to pass the Master Nationals?" One very successful handler kind of knodded his head and shook his finger, and said "In her day, David Maddox's Dancy". That was the greatest compliment any of my dogs have received in the 16 years I've had retrievers. The irony to the story. 2 weeks ago, on a training/fishing trip (Dancy loved fishing), Dancy ran her last blind. A tough one at that. Go figure; SHE LINED IT!!!

    I'm so sorry to hear this news, David.

    Please accept my condolences.

    It sounds like you have nothing to regret and that you gave Dancy a super life...
