It is so sad. I am not at all into saints and the different blood lines. Do you have a photo of him??? I understand he must have been a very special dog, with lots of wins in the ring.

I know 9 is a long life in dog years.  It is just sad that it is so short in ours.  Sounds like another very special boy will be very missed by a lot of people.

Our condolences...
