Dace (CH Te Toki O Manawatoa ROM)

(01/01/2008 - 17/10/2016)

In Memorium: Dace was the son of Kislee (Maa's sister) and CH Boromir Cold Steel. He was my first bull terrier registered in my kennel name, my second champion (1st under Manawatoa) and first Manawatoa bull terrier to gain his ROM.

Dace lost his battle with a particularly nasty cancer a week ago and his tragic loss is felt by all who knew him and especially his Gordon whanau of whom he was a cherished member. Saying goodbye to your beloved bull terrier is such a hard thing to do as they leave such a hole in your world and you keep falling into it.

Tanith our daughter and her husband James and three of our grand daughters are sorely missing their best friend. He was a beautiful dog who proved to be a bit of a "show pony" - performing not only in the show room but on the stage for the Hamilton Operatic Society in their production of Oliver. Dace's legacy will live on through his progeny which I am fortunate to have and his grandson Drey.
