June 22, 1994 - March 1, 2008

Let the sun shine bright today at the Bridge,
And the angels sweetly sing;
Let the water run sweet and the breeze be warm,
As the Bridge flock takes brilliant wing.
For a soul is arriving this morning.
She's special; that's all I can say ...
Please love her the way we loved her on earth --
Our angel crossed over today.

K.C. crossed over the Rainbow Bridge at 16 years of age.  He was busy from day one, so he did a lot to keep busy.  From Flyball to Rally to Obedience, K.C. tried it all.  Although his impatient whining drove us all crazy, the silence now is deafening.

Rest in peace my KCman monster child. Life will never be the same without you and there will never be another quite like you.

K.C. achieved his Champion title at 11 months of age.   The few times he was out as a Special, he won a 1st in Group and multiple Group placings, including a 4th in Group at the Fort Gary Classic with 21 Sporting Dogs in the Group.

K.C. is the father of Ch. Shaankata's Aces and Eights and Ch. Shaankata's Tequila Terror CGC  also featured in this site.
