In Loving Memory of

Champion Avinjas Odin

May 1994-Jan 2003

It is with great sadness that Champion Avinja's Odin
was given sleep on 28th January 2003 suffering from a
terminal tumour on his spine.

First dedicated to Odin's dam "Celebrity"the following poem is so fitting for Odin also

TO EACH COMES A TIME OF BEAUTIFUL AND EVER LASTING PEACE.

If it should be that I grow frail and weak, and pain should keep me from my sleep.
Then you must do what must be done, for this last battle can't be won.
You will be sad I understand, don't let your grief then stay your hand,
for this day more than all the rest your love and friendship stands the test.
We've had so many happy years,what is to come can hold no fears.
So when the time comes let me go and take me where my needs they'll tend,
only stay with me until the end,and hold me firm and speak to me
until my eyes no longer see.
It's kindness that you do to me,although my tail's it's last has waived
from pain and suffering I've been saved.
Do not grieve it should be you, who must decide this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two these years don't let your heart hold any tears
Till we meet again.
and

Forever in our hearts:

Sire: Int.Ch. Rosehurst Chris
Dam: Avinja's Celebrity

Odin was awarded his C.C.'s by Breed Specialist Judges: Eric Broadhurst, Andrew Winfrow, Steve Foran and his R.C.C.'s by A.Aquarni, A.Winfrow and Herr Humberdross.
