Date of Birth: 04/21/1994
Name Origin: Common Phrase
Chance was out of Mickey and Corrie, and a wonderful loving dog. She came when my oldest child, Josh, was 2 and my second oldest, Brianna, was 7 months, and helped me raise 5 more children. Chance was everything you could want in a water dog she enjoyed life completely and showed it. I started Chance with Tracking when she was just 5 months old and had to stop mid-season to give birth to my 3rd child, Michaela. We restarted the following fall and she earned her TD that spring in Utah. The following year she earned her TDX and we were invited by the El Dorado search and rescue team to join up. I became pregnant again and couldn’t complete the training program and by the time I was ready Chance was too old to start. She loved to track, and once put on a track, nothing could break her concentration. She would fly down the track at a run with me following and made every turn exact. Chance produced several litters of wonderful puppies and was always a great mother. She was never cross with any dog or person and passed that on to her offspring. Chance passed away at 15 years and 7 months from a massive stroke, a month after showing her final time at our Northern California Regional Specialty in Veteran Sweeps.
