IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUR PRECIOUS “SHINER”

Friday, June 15th, 2018

12/3/2003 – 6/14/2018

Shiner was one of the foundation females of our breeding program.  She was the most gentle, kind, and considerate Labrador we have ever had.  She came to us from Tealwood Labradors many years ago and lived a great life here at Rushwind.  She was very Maternal and not only loved her babies, but all of the Labrador and Border Terrier pups that have been born here.

Her 15th Birthday was coming up this year, but she couldn’t hang on.  She died peacefully with us by her side and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on June 14th.

YOU ARE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER!
