With heavy heart we announce the passing of our lovely "Candle" (Ch Farlap Candle). She was such a special girl to us, first and foremost she was the pack leader amongst the hounds, always calm and strong, never a cross word, her authority was accepted by all without discussion. Her normal calm disposition always went abit awry in the ring as she did find showing very exciting, and her lively behavior and very forward going movement was her trademark at the show, hence she was made up to a champion quite quickly as well as gaining group 3 at WELKS, and then retired from the ring to become a mother. She had one litter for us and spent the rest of her life happily on the sofa and running free in the fields, and enjoying her elevated position in the pack. She will be sadly missed by us all, and here's the last photo I took of her, just last week, enjoying her favourite pastime of sunbathing!
