A very special message from Sue Norrie . . .
Having lost both Sasha and Savanah to cancer in
the past few months has made this year's
incredibly difficult to work on, but it is now
almost ready for the printer.
In the past 7 years we have raised $9,931.36
with these calendars, with 100% of the money
being split between
The Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund and The
Goldstock Fund. I am so proud of this special
litter of dogs (and their owners)
for such an amazing accomplishment. And I am so
proud of Sasha, what an incredible litter of
puppies she gave birth to!
I would like to thank our sponsors once again,
because without them this calendar fundraiser
would not be possible.
Many thanks to Suzi Beber of Smiling Blue Skies,
Ann Thomas of Tigertail Foods, Richard Carlton
of Richard Carlton Consulting,
Jane & Rick Fish of Source Menagerie, Cory
Hoffart of C.H. Construction, Rich & Deb

Since this is the 10th anniversary of the calendar and also our
final edition, there are several extra pages of photos,
including two pages of all the photo contest entrants.
I'm sure there are many of you who have sadly lost a dog to
cancer. I hope you will help us raise money to aid in the fight
against this horrible disease by ordering a calendar. A collage
of the calendar is attached (missing 3 months still).
Thank you so much for your support!
Arizona Shawnee Scout, Can/Bda/Am CDX, CC, TDI. What
can I say about a dog who has brought so much into
my life? It was 13 years ago right about now when I
first met Shawnee, a beautiful 10 week old puppy. My
life had been devastated 5 months earlier with the
loss of Duffer, my horse, who had been my whole
world for 26 years, well over half of my life. When
I first saw Shawnee and we made eye contact it was
just as if I was looking into Duffer's eyes. I knew
at that moment I had to have that puppy. Shawnee
gave me my life back when nothing else could. This
is Shawnee's first Parade of Titleholders, and
hopefully not her last. You see, Shawnee may have
that horrible "C" word. I don't know what her future
will bring, but I would like to honor Shawnee's past
13 years by showing you what she is responsible for
in the 2nd and 3rd generations of Lazyriver.
Multi BISS Can/BIS Bda/Am CH Lazyriver Sweet Sasha,
OD, SDHF, CGC, TDI. Sasha was the only girl in
Shawnee's one and only litter of 4,
and Shawnee gave me pure perfection in this little
girl. Sasha is an amazing dog, whether in the ring
with her flawless movement and beauty, in the
whelping box with her two litters of beautiful
babies, or on the couch as my best buddy. And her
intelligence is just incredible. I can't imagine my
life without Sasha in it.
Starting off the 3rd generation is the first born
from Sasha's first litter, BIS/Multi BPIS Can CH
Lazyriver Sunrise Over Savanah, SDHF, CGC, TDI,
American Pointed. Savanah is my little clown, and my
constant companion. I swear she is attached to me by
Velcro as I can't move without her being there with
me. Words can't describe how I feel about this girl.
I can't believe my baby is going to be 7 years old
in 4 days. Where has the time gone? Savanah has
followed in her mother's paw steps in the ring, and
has done very well for herself.
Also in the 3rd generation, the first born from
Sasha's 2nd litter known as "The Sashettes" is
BPIS/BPISS Can CH Lazyriver Star In The Skye. Skylar
lives to retrieve and is completely ball obsessed.
It's really too bad she has never had a chance to
try field work as I am sure she would excel at it.
Like her older sister, Skylar has also followed in
her mother's paw steps and done very well in the
ring. She is well on her way towards her SDHF.
Another Sashette is Can CH Lazyriver Starlite O'er
Sydney. Sydney inherited her mother's beautiful
movement and is a joy to watch. I call her my
"Sweetness in a Golden body". Last August Sydney
produced the 4th generation of Lazyriver kids for
me. But what was she thinking in giving me only
boys? And in a shameless plug, Sydney, Skylar and
their 9 littermates are featured in a Sasha & The
Sashettes calendar which is now in it's 4th year of
production. 100% of the money raised from this
calendar is split between The Smiling Blue Skies
Cancer Fund and The Goldstock Fund. So if you are in
need of a 2008 calendar, please pre-order one, and help support two
extremely important causes for our Goldens.
Orders will be taken at this coming weekend's amazing Goldstock, and
at the Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty.
