Look at a movie with Melissa aged 9,5 years »

After the loss of my first Irish setter Rosie I didn't think I could find that kind of a personality again. I was happy that I was wrong. Melissa was also very much a personality.  Melissa came to us as a little baby, aged 7,5 weeks. She was the smallest girl in the litter, but the one that was noticed first of all. And her whole life she was the one that liked to be the center of attention! She talked a lot, with a high voice... She was really a spoilt girl, I could never say no to this one!!

Melissa liked to show, especially to run in the ring! Her first CC came when she was 15 months old and the next two didn't take long to get. She got several CACIBs, BOBs, BOSs and also Groupwins and -placings during her career. Her last show was aged almost 11, she was BOB-veteran and BIS-veteran at a group-show for FCI groups 7,8 and 9. A happy memory.

Now I try to only remember the good times we had. And not to think about how much I miss her. Melissa was my very best friend, my support and comfort for more than 12 years.
