Suri's sire is a dog I had long admired since a puppy, indeed coveted, for his presence, character and athleticism. I was delighted to be told that he had sired a litter of pups, as having his daughter would perhaps sate my unrequited love and prevent me conducting a potential dog-napping. When I then saw the dam's pedigree, I was blown away. Suri's mum is directly descended from all the Canens I knew so well, including our Jaffa's father, his grandfather, his aunts and uncles. Familiar names walking straight off the page of the history books and bred to one of my favourite dogs in the world.

Despite her family's talented agility heritage, sadly Suri cannot follow in their footsteps. Her total lack of self-preservation came to a head at five months old when she jumped out of our caravan door and landed badly on the metal steps. One year on, investigation into her intermittent lameness by a leading Veterinary Orthopaedic specialist revealed arthritic changes to a chipped shoulder blade, which immediately precluded involvement in any high-impact sports before we'd even started.
In March 2019 shortly before her third birthday, Suri had a lovely litter of five pups to our homegrown boy Hitch (Kilnhurst Quick Fix.) These pups have inherited all their parents talents, power and intelligence and are enjoying the agility career that our beautiful, fun and loving girl could never have.
