"Hope" KoAnne's Wish Come True - 8/17/1998-12/2/2013
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:55:31 PM »
KoAnne's Wish Come True, aka "Hope", passed away yesterday.  Her liver failed along with a stroke and her body just gave way.  I already miss her tremendously.  She was my first Keeshond to have done exceptionally well in all venues of agility and was great at distance work.  She was my first Keeshond who loved to play ball and retrieve.  We got to do Purina Incredible Dog Challenge and Great Outdoor Games because of her speed and because she was not one of the normal "small" breeds at the time to do agility with.  She won NADAC Championships 3 times.  She has numerous titles: MACH in AKC, CATCH-3 in CPE, ADCH-Gold in USDAA, ATCH-SP in ASCA, UATCH in UKC, NATCH-24 and V-NATCH-18 in NADAC.  Although, she ran well in many agility venues, I think she really liked the NADAC venue the best since there was more spacing between obstacles, the courses were more logical to her, and distance between the obstacles seemed to suit her stride.  She also liked to work at a distance.  My heart is currently filled with sadness; but I have to move on and play with those who I still have.  Hoping that another special young adult/pup Keeshond girl will find me someday as did Hope at 9 months. 

"Hope" -- KoAnne's Wish Come True -- 08/17/1998 - 12/02/2013 -- lived a long and active live.  I will miss your companionship and your bark! 

Thank you for being part of my life,

Oh Cynthia I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. I too many years ago owned a Kees and know of their wonderful sense of humor and zest for life. I will always remember enjoying seeing her run at Champs and thank her for reminding me of mine. I'm sending you a hug and a few tears. Someday the tears will turn to only smiles. What a great dog she was !

Thank you for giving her such a wonderful life. What more could any dog want ?

So very sorry for your loss Cynthia.  Hope was an awesome dog and a wonderful agility partner.  I know she is going to be missed something fierce.  Hopefully you find comfort in knowing she had a wonderful life with you.

So sorry to hear this.  I only ever saw Hope at Champs, but what a view it was!  I was so impressed that a Kees could be soooo good! She had a great long life with you.  Hugs to you and yours.

I, too, am so sorry to hear of Hope's passing. She was a wonderful dog and I loved watching her run. She accomplished so much in her life, and most especially she was your loving partner and friend.
