QUICKSILVER EL LOCO BLU ARTHUR (Ltd.)
~~~In loving memory~~~
Arthur was a real pleasure to be around, with an easy, outgoing personality and was always trying to please.
He enjoyed being shown, very gentle with other dogs and people, and a lover of life!
Arthur is in his second year had a very stocky build, and most closely resembles a heavy and muscular European Dane and the Lifthrasir side of his family tree (see pedigree at bottom of Afra's page for pictures!) . Arthur was chosen as a show prospect in large part not only because of his conformation, but his good overall health and stable outgoing personality. His pretty blue/grey eyes didn't hurt either!!
Arthurs results with very limited showing and halfway to his Canadian Championship were as follows:
2 - Best of Breed
1 - Best of Opposite Sex.
2 - Best of Winners
6 - Winners Dog
7 - Reserve Winners Dog
Sadly Arthur left us far too early..., autopsy results revealed a tumour growing on his thymus gland, a thymoma. Thymoma's in people and dane's are a relatively rare form of cancer.
