May 8, 1994 to July 3, 2010
Sadly, on Saturday we had to say "au revoir" to our best friend. A frequenter of Dogwood Park since 1994, Sultan had his last saunter along the trails last Tuesday, but weakened quite rapidly during the ensuing few days.
Sultan visited Dogwood Park almost every day of his 16 years, and for many of those years was never seen without a frisbee dangling from his mouth. Visiting the park and competing in Agility were his favourite activities, but he humoured me by doing competitive Obedience and Canine Musical Freestyle as well.
When Anna began teaching Agility classes, Sultan was one of her first students and he was so fond of agility that he continued to attend classes for a couple of years after he was no longer able to compete. He would squeal with delight as soon as the car turned onto 0 Ave as he knew we were heading for the barn to play agility.
Sultan's exuberance for life and his gentle spirit made him the perfect companion one that will be not soon forgotten. We will miss him dearly, but are sure that he is again happily romping with former dog friends who passed before him.
