October 8, 1993 - April 22, 2008

It is with incredible sadness that we announce the passing of one of the breed's finest.  "Tanner" was the beloved once-in-a-lifetime companion of Denise Cornelssen, Miqelon Shelties.  Tanner charmed the judges with his standard-perfect head and expression, and sound body and movement and sweet temperament.  His first ring appearance was at the CSSA National in 1994, where he won his class, won the heart of Denise and then went home with her.  Subsequent CSSA National wins included Best of Breed, twice Best of Opposite Sex and then at the American Nationals, three Awards of Merit and in pursuit of his fourth, he "rose to the occasion" and took the coveted Best of Breed, being the oldest Sheltie to do so!

Farewell, and thank you Tan-Man.
