Calie’s Chrome Chaos Concept CGC “Conner”

Conner was one of the most beautiful souls I ever met. A soul mate and friend with whom we often seemed to be able to read each other’s thoughts.

I will always love you Con Man, I will always cherish every second we had together and never will stop the work, the purpose, the journey you helped me to be even more passionate about. I love and miss you so much. My heart is completely broken, but I am and will forever be grateful to God for blessing me with you to share your life with me, for being here for me. Thank you for everything, my love. Rest in so much deserved peace, my beautiful friend, my peaceful warrior, my wonderful companion, my wise teacher, my funny man, my amazing, wonderful, super strong and magical dog. My miracle dog,my prayed for dog . I wish I could say more, write something extraordinary in your honor, but all I can think of is the unbearable void here, now and for a long time to come. And about the beauty of your eyes, your face, your beautiful doggie smile, your whole being. About how many people and other dogs, you met and touched. I love you so much my special boy. Until we meet again, you will live in my heart every second of my life until its very last beat.

Conner passed one night in his sleep, we suspect it was cancer but he was strong, happy and normally active up until three days before he passed. He had only slowed down and was sleeping more. I had made an appointment to take him in for some blood work to be run on him in just two days.

It was a devastating shock to find him lying stretched out, eyes closed and looking like he was just in a deep sleep.   It has taken me two years to finally open this web page of his again.

Conner was a Swedish import co-owned with Penny Harney (Pinafore Standard Poodles).

Conner had a lovely head piece, lots of coat, stylish conformation but most of all he had high intelligence and an awesome personality that had to be experienced to truly know how special he was.

Conner was my foundation dog for my Standard Poodle lines and what a perfect foundation dog he was even though he was only with me for 3 1/2 years!

His puppies and grandpuppies are all amazing and adored dogs that do Conner very proud!

Conner passed his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) test with ease after only working at home with him for a few days and only having him a few short weeks. He was so sweet and intuitive he was great at cheering people up and soaking up all the affection they had to give him.   My dream was for him to become an official Therapy Dog and visit nursing homes and hospitals.   That dream never came to be but he would have been awesome at it.


Therapy Dog Prayer

Creator of all things, grant us humility that the works we behold with our eyes, through our Therapy Dogs, we may accept in our hearts, as a revelation of your love for all humanity




This was a typical Conner smile.
