D.O.B. 13/08/1994


We got our lovely girl Shadow (Ch Mashiara Moonshadow) from Melissa Gore in Bungendore in 1994, and have never had a moments regret!  After meeting Rae Officer and her Groenendael boy Ringo in Centennial Park in Sydney, we were convinced to take Shadow into the show ring, a new venture for us!  She won her first Challenge at the Bulli District Kennel Club Show on 30 April, 1995. This was the start of a very successful show career for Shadow, who had attained her Australian Championship title by the end of 1995. She went on to amass 579 Challenge points prior to her retirement in mid-1999. Her biggest victory was winning Challenge Bitch and Runner-up Best of Breed in the face of very strong competition and with a Belgian judge at the Sydney Royal Show in April, 1997. We were so proud of our girl!


Shadow was the start of Moonshadow Kennels, named after her. In 1997 we decided to have our first litter, and bred Shadow with Harley (Australian Champion Zellik Notorious Flyer A.D.), who was imported from the UK.  We had five lovely puppies, two boys - Zulu and Mali, and three girls - Peppercorn, Bumble-Bee and Pixie.  Mali, Bumble Bee and Pixie all went to loving homes while Peppy and Zulu stayed with us.  Zulu has gone on to become an Australian Champion in his own right.  In recent years, Shadow was the benevolent matriarch of the family. With her affectionate and fun-loving personality she endeared herself to everyone who visited, and continued to groom and play with all other members of the family! Sadly, our beautiful girl passed away on 29 December, 2010, much to our distress. For a brief tribute to her and her life, go to Shadow's vale.


Shadow as a young girl is pictured above, and a more recent picture of her, coming up to 16 years of age, is shown below.
