D.O.B. 19/10/1997

 

We are very saddened to report that our lovely boy Zulu passed away on 20 April, 2012, at 14 and a half years of age.

For a brief tribute, visit Zulu's Vale.

 

In 1997 we decided to have our first litter, and bred Shadow to Aust Ch Zellik Notorious Flyer AD, "Harley", 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 was extremely successful in the Show ring, becoming an Australian Champion in 1999, and being awarded many Best/ Runner-up Best in Working Dog Groups and multiple Class in Working Dog Group awards.Some of his awards are listed below. Nearing the age of 10, he retired from the ring in 2007, with 729 Challenge Points, enough to make him an Australian Champion seven times over.He is pictured above with his beloved dad about to enter the Show Ring to win Best Australian Bred Dogin the Working Dog Group at the Bega Valley Kennel and Obedience Club Show on his dad's birthday in February 2006. He is still our sweet gentle boy who adores people. For more recent pictures, see Zulus_13th_Birthday.html

 

News Flash

 

In January 2012, Zulu came with us down to Bungendore, NSW for a 3 day show weekend where each day they were offering a Veterans Sweepstakes competition for dogs over 10 years of age. On the first day, 27 January, 2012, Zulu won the 3rd place ribbon. On the second day, he won the 2nd place ribbon, and on the third day he won the 1st place ribbon. Quite an accomplishment for a dog of over 14 years who had not been in the ring since 2007! Zulu was the only dog out of 600+ entered in these shows who was born in the 1900ís! We were so proud of our sweet old boy! Some pictures of the 14 year old Zulu in the ring with Lesley are shown below.
