Amber joins Bartok over the Rainbow Bridge

February 2, 1998 - April 20, 2012 

Sadly, just two days after her brother Bartok crossed the Rainbow Bridge, his sister Amber followed in his pawsteps to join him.  Amber died peacefully and asleep in the arms of her beloved owner, Sherryanne Farr.  Amber and Bartok were the last puppies out of a litter of four born in 1998 to my foundation bitch, Am/Can CH Maritza of Kezdet Nekah Am/Can CD CGC Nekah.  With Amber's passing, all of Nekah's puppies and that generation are now gone.

Amber was a Best Puppy in Group and also had 2 Group placements in conformation during her show career in Alberta, Canada. Amber was the foundation Vizsla bitch for Blackbullet Vizslas (Sherryanne Farr and Wes Daniels) in Alberta.  She was bred three times but only one mating was successful - the one done at her home in 2004 with her humans close by rather than when she was sent away for breeding.  That's often the case.  Her kids are:

Amy - Blackbullet Amethyst of Vegso
Chester - Blackbullet Il Mio Amore Varaz
Cooper  - BPG CH Blackbullets Heart of Varazs
Jewel - CH Blackbullet Varazs Legacy NAVHDA NA Prize II
Maggie - Blackbullet St. Mags of Varazs
Nando - Blackbullet Varazs Braveheart 
Rufus - CH Blackbullet Varazs Grof Rufus

Amber's spirit and beauty live on through her seven puppies and many grandkids through her daughter, CH Blackbullet Varazs Legacy NAVHDA NA Pz II, "Jewel".  Amber will be greatly missed by Sherryanne and Wes and leaves a big hole in their hearts. And I share their grief.

  1. Interestingly Amber's daughter Jewel also took a group 3rd placement under this judges, Virginia Lynne, group one specialist judge, at 13 months of age, six years after this placement for Amber

    1. Ginny obviously saw something very lovely in both Amber & Jewel. How comforting and wonderful to have this memory of both mother & daughter. xxoo

  2. I am so sorry for your loss & that of her owners. Losing a beloved dog is always so hard.

  3. (((Hugs))). It's so hard to say goodbye but I hope both Amber and Bartok's families find comfort in a lifetime of happy memories.

  4. Great sorrow for the owners. How wonderful to find a breeder who keeps in touch with her owners! That & the age of these littermates is a testament to a good breeder/breeding.
