Goodbye to Timmy

BIS/BISS Am/Can Ch. Toven Wintertide, Can CD, ROMC

I was just writing this week about a special sheltie named Timmy. Timmy has made a great impact on our breeding program here at OBay Shelties. Sadly Toni Mapes has lost her best friend today as she held Timmy in her arms and let him go to a better place.
Timmy was 12 1/2 years old.

Timmy was a gorgeous blue boy who had an incredible show career. But he was not only a show dog; he was an obedience dog, a beloved family pet, a fantastic stud dog and a ball-catcher extraordinaire. We are grateful to have Timmy in the pedigrees of many of our shelties.
Our sympathies go out to Toni and Steven Mapes of Toven Shelties.

Although I have never been fortunate enough to have met Timmy I have admired him from afar (UK) and am proud to own on of his Grandson's OBay Truly Focused (Chi)
What a hansome chap he looks in this photo
