In Memory of Prize
OTCH Sparkle's Keepin' Eyes On Prize

With deepest sympathies to Prize's loving owner Lynn Weinberg
from all her friends and students at Hideaway Farm

There must be a heaven
for the animal friends we love.
They are not human,
yet they bring out our own humanity ~
sometimes in ways that other people cannot.
They do not worry about fame or fortune ~
instead they bring our hearts nearer to the joy of simple things.
Each day they teach us little lessons
in trust and steadfast affection.
Whatever heaven may be,
there's surely a place in it
for friends as good as these.

Lynn's Tribute

I will always remember him as a puppy at Terri Arnold's camp when he was 4 months old and our visit at the ocean. Dee Wright took pictures and I will always treasure those pictures. Prize was a Stride and Sparkle baby and worked like a dream. I remember meeting Dee Dee Rose (his breeder) at a show site in South Carolina to pick him up. I was nervous about seeing the puppy that was to be mine...and when I first saw Prize I remember how very very cute he was. He followed me in the motel room, leaving Dee Dee, like he knew he was mine.

Prize was known for gently grabbing your arm and leading you about. He also was known for gently grabbing your neck and making enjoyable love sounds. People loved watching us heel and I often let other people heel Prize. He would heel with anyone and they always enjoyed the ride. He was a special boy and I will miss him very much.
