Owner/Handler: Elaine O'Carroll of Riva, MD


I finally found the strength to let you know that we had Rory euthanized last week. He was a great dog right until the end of his life and we miss him greatly. As you know, Rory won High in Trial JWW at the 2001 BCCA Specialty. He also won an AWARD of Merit at that same Specialty. He won several Best of Breed and Group Placement awards in the US and Canada in his limited conformation career. He also won several Obedience High in Trials in all-breed shows and Specialties in the US and Canada. He was Top Scoring Obedience Beardie for several years in the US and Canada. He was twice invited to the AKC Invitational for Obedience, but we didn't go because it was not feasible for us to travel to California at that time. He accomplished so much, but SLO finally interfered with his ability to compete. He was a very special, fun, vivacious dog and I loved working with him. We taught each other so much. He died in comfort and with dignity.
