Ch. Tregarrick's Iron Maiden

"Rikki"

Out of Ch Solstice Nathan x Ch Poile de Carrote
DOB: August 15, 1984
Died October 15, 1993

A lovely brindle girl, slow to mature, but worth the wait. She gave me two beautiful litters, and left me with many happy memories.  

Rikki developed demyelination of the spinal cord, and was having extreme difficulty walking and even staying on her feet. We euthanised her before she got too bad. I am thankful that there is now a genetic test for this problem. When I get back to breeding we shall incorporate the test on all breeding stock.
