Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, but love leaves a memory that no one can steal...

Sacro Romano Imperio Caius Julius Caesar "Santos"

† 08-06-2009
I just can't find the correct words to say about Santos' death right now and I wonder if I ever can... At this moment I just can say something about the 3 years we have spent together... He was my first dog, my best friend, my trainings partner, my big love, my pride... He was playfull, driven, funny, sweet, macho... He made me appreciate the breed American Staffordshire Terrier even more than I already did and he motivated me to start my kennel. Unfortunately I made the decision to rehome him, because I thought this was best for him... It turned out in his way too early death at an age of just 5 years old... If I only knew this was going to happen... So sorry, my sweet boy... People can be so cruel!! :(

Blue Rising Star Black Label Junior "Sensai"

24-04-2007
† 12-12-2014

One of the most easy and sweet Amstaff males I knew... My dear dear Sensai, such a crazy fun loving boy. So hard to believe that you didn't even turn 8 years old, that you became ill and that your body couldn't go on. It just happened so fast, I almost can't realize how your last weeks must have been, since I only know you as a healthy active boy. It's a good thing we have two of your sons (Hinto and Muttley) to keep a part of you going, but even without your offspring, your memories will stay alive in my heart forever. You were a once in a lifetime dog, outside and in.

I would like to thank Nicole Nesbit and Tina Andersson for also taking care of Sensai in his last two years.

Guardians Of Tower V.I.P. Cover Girl "Diega"

29-08-2004
† 17-11-2015

We got the sad news that our first female, one of our foundation bitches, passed away today. It's Guardians Of Tower V.I.P. Cover Girl "Diega" who gave us our B and D litter. She always was a happy and healthy girl, but the last two weeks she couldn't walk properly and her knee got swollen up. Her knee seemed to hurt very bad and painkillers weren't effective anymore in the last couple of days. This morning, an x-ray showed that she had a huge tumor in the knee; bone cancer. Gert and Esther, who took care of her since she retired, decided to not let her wake up anymore, since this is a very aggressive form of cancer that will not get any better, just get worse very very fast. We respect this decision and are at least happy that Diega isn't in pain anymore. She will be missed enormously and I would like to thank Gert and Esther for giving her a great home these last years!!

Diega, crazy girl with amazing temperament, thanks for all you've given us. You will live on in your offspring.

CH Barry's Starting Over With KS "Bubba"

26-08-2005
† 24-05-2011
When we picked up Bubba in December 2010 in Hungary, his problems slowly started to show. It began with kennel cough, cystitis and bladder stones. He lost blood from his penis and his hair was falling out. He was on diverse medication and a special diet for all of this but the problems only got worse. After more research (x-rays and ultrasound), his prostate appeared enormous and was filled with cysts so we decided to neuter him. We hoped the problems would stay away after this, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. He started to get depressed; only wanted to go out for very short walks and just slept for the rest of the time. His movement was visibly getting worse and he lost weight, so again he got a total check up (blood-/urine tests and x-rays) and multiple problems were noticed. A spinal deviation showed plus the thyroid wasn't working like it should. Again a bunch of medication and painkillers for this boy, which actually didn't really work. When he got daily diarrhea and he finally ended up with a spinal tumor too, the time came to decide the best thing for Bubba, because this was not the life we wanted for him. He deserved a happy life after all he's been through, and not a depressed life in pain. He couldn't even walk normally, he kept falling down in his last days and this happened at an age of just 5,5 years old... I want to thank Bubba's co-owners Marjolein, Bas and little Mick - who was Bubba's best buddy. They took such good care for Bubba in his last months, they gave him so much love and I am happy that he could be a part of their family!

Blue Rising Star Another Universe "Kadisha"

18-12-2006
† 07-01-2016

Helaas hebben we via-via vernomen dat Kadisha, één van de beste pups van mijn eerste nest, op of rond 7 januari 2016 door een beunhaas(!) is geëuthanaseerd. Een normale dierenarts wilde haar niet in laten slapen, en wij weten dan ook niet wat de reden is geweest om dit wél te laten doen... Zij is helaas maar 9 jaar oud geworden. Wij betreuren sowieso hoe het met Kadisha gelopen is, hebben de laatste jaren van haar leven dan ook geen contact met haar 2e eigenaar gehad wegens onverantwoord gedrag. Hoe dan ook... Wij hopen dat Kadisha ondanks alles toch een fijn leven heeft mogen hebben. Kadisha, rust zacht mooie schat. Het spijt ons dat het zo gegaan is!! Nu maar lekker spelen daarboven, met je broer Kenzo en halfzusje Cucci!

Unfortunately we've got the very very sad news that Blue Rising Star Custom Made "Cucci" has been put down to sleep this afternoon, due to the fact that she was Ataxia Affected. She would have turned 5 years old this coming September, but her quality of life was just too bad last months... Sweet Cucci, I am so sorry this happened to you. I hope you can find peace now and play together with your buddy Ringo. You're gone but not forgotten! Much strength to Cucci's owners...

Blue Rising Star Collectors Item "Guarda"

29-09-2008
† 20-06-2011
This morning the very sad news arrived that our bred boy Blue Rising Star Collectors Item "Guarda" passed away at a way too young age. After being very sick from a heavy bacterial infection for some days, he was brought to the bloodbank in Nijverdal yesterday evening for a transfusion. Unfortunately Guarda was too weak to get the transfusion at that moment, so he had to stay there on an infusion last night, hoping he would get stronger. This morning he began to pass out and the doctors did try to reanimate him, but it was too late... We still can not believe it, it all went so fast and we want to wish Guarda's owners many strength with this great loss...

Until we meet again...

Mystical "Nino"

I met this boy in 2005 and he made a great impression on me. Such amazing looks and what a strong temperament he had! Maybe too much character for some, but respected by many! Unfortunately he got a lung defect and passed away too soon at the age of only 8 years old... His owner Elwin still misses him every single day... Rest in Peace Nino!
