Note from Karen Parton April 25, 2011:

Last Monday Rob and I lost our best friend CH Shadowdale's Inferno. Everyone who knew Dante has seen our energizer bunny in action.

He lived for showing off in the ring and was totally devoted to the love of his life Mary (Curl).He knew we were off to a show the minute he saw the show equipment come out and would stand at the door so he wouldn't get left behind. As soon as he saw Mary he'd forget we were even there. He was a gentleman from the day he came home and continued that way to the momment we lost him.

We miss him dearly and our life will never be the same.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and words. They meant the world to Rob and I.
Karen& ,Rob Parton

'Dante' - AKA "The Energizer Bunny", a double Harley 'D' grandson. Clowning his way around the ring is his specialty! An extremely happy dog Dante has all the attitude you could ask for and sometimes more.... He started showing at just 6 mos of age and has been a consistant winner (with limited showing) since. As he matures he just gets better and better. Head shots at 8 years and 8 mos..

Dopplered, Normal 2003. Dante is now having fun with agility! See Dante's first litter here

Head studies pictured at 8 1/2 years
