The King Is Gone

Am/Cdn Ch Merrymoon Firestorm “Hunter”

March 21,1996 – May 18, 2013

Bred by Barb Hoffman, catered to by me And loved by everyone who met him Hunter was helped peacefully to the bridge yesterday when he let me know that it was time to set him free.

A great boy with an absolutely wonderful temperament and an “evil twin” Hunter’s spirit will live on through his progeny around the world. Even on this sad day, on Facebook I an reading of a grandson winning the British breeds specialty in Budapest and new grandchildren being evaluated in the US. Although he never achieved ROM status himself he has definitely left his mark on the breed but his greatest achievement was being my companion through thick and thin and many of life’s challenges. There is a huge Hunter-sized hole in my heart right now.
