Drake (September 26, 1999 October 13, 2003)

 

Ildanoch Southern Seeker CD NA NAJ WC NJC

(Ch O'rlook's Brown Sugar CD OA CGC TT x Ch Beaufield's Valiant Madcap CDX JH WC)

Drake was my first Irish Water Spaniel and truly a special boy.  He was the Valor (Ch. Beaufield Valiant Madcap CDX JH WC) son I wanted and then some.  Drake was a big, sweet boy with drive and ability.  He was a great companion and true partner.  He taught me a lot and I miss him more than anyone can imagine.

Drake was taken away from us way too soon.  After just turning 4 years old, I noticed that he just didn't seem right.  I took him to the veterinarian where he was diagnosed with Lyme's disease.  While normally not fatal, Drake had Lyme's Nephritis, which attacks the kidneys.  Within 3 days, he was gone as the disease completely shut down his kidneys.  Irish Water Spaniels can be incredibly stoic and Drake was no exception.  He showed no signs of illness.  We would give anything to have this boy back.  Needless to say, I now have my dogs tested for Lyme's at least every six months.

During Drake's short life, he was very successful in obedience, agility and hunt tests.  While not a breed champion as he only had one testicle descended, he was an incredibly handsome boy.  Please click on the links above to find out more about Drake and to see more pictures.
