thoughts go out to Gwen, on the loss of her beloved Dancer...
"And now, I'm glad I didn't know
the way it all would end
the way it all would go.
Our lives, better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd had to miss the Dance"

New Year from all
of us here at Trojan Rottweilers! We hope the year 2002 brings you
everything you wish and dream for.
year 2001 was very good for us. It brought us our first owner-handled Best
In Show, with our young male, Diezel, along with
earning his American championship, also owner handled. Diezel will rank
for the year 2001 in the Top 5 Rottweilers in Canada. It also brought us a
great, new up-and-comer, Roborotts Vulnerable To None aka "Vinnie",
shown only a few times, but still awarded VVN-1 at the West Coast Landesgruppe
Sieger Show under Judge Joe Hedl in the 4-6 month class, and Best Puppy in both
the Peace Arch Working and Herding Specialty and the Rottweiler Fanciers of BC
Booster, and also a few RWDs. And our young girl, Brie
- Trojan's Brina vom Solanese HIC, picked up some points towards her Canadian
championship, and earned her Herding Instinct Certificate. She also went
SG-1 at the West Coast Landesgruppe Sieger show in the 12-18 month class.
was a great year to meet new friends, both on the inside and the outside of the
ring. Friendships have been formed that I am sure will last a
lifetime. There are certain people I wish to thank for all their support,
input, advice, help, those "special" coffees on early show days and the Iron Chef
parties. A big thanks to; Joy (for the on-going support and
extremely helpful input...and I'm sorry I introduced you to Tim Horton's coffee
<g>), Vaughn (Diezel's best buddy and wrestling partner), Pat (big thanks
from Brie and even bigger to Thurston, from Diezel), Dawne (where to
start? .....where else would I eat reindeer for dinner?), Joan (my "junior"), Jill (the keeper of the
No-BOB section), Amy (my bleacher co-hort -
and no, we didn't break the pointer clock), Tony (yes Tony, we know you don't
like conformation), Larry (for keeping me entertained on more than one
occasion), Cynthia and Kerry (for their help and input), Suzanne and Donna (for
being great people and always having an open ear), and Al and Anne (who
helped out on many occasions, and came down to the shows, just to watch and
cheer us on).
And in the US, I want to thank Dawn (hey, what is one more dog at your house,
right?), Hilary (for having us down at your home and for all the
great emails), Carol (for all the info and advice), and Tina and Rod (for all
their support and having us in your home). I'm sure I have
forgotten someone....so please forgive me. And lastly, thanks
to the judges who made showing a wonderful experience.
you all the best for the New Year!
you at the shows!
