Parsnip tragically passed away at the age of three from complications during her spay surgery. This type of loss one never gets over. I certainly never will.

Parsnip Doing Rally!!

   Ch.Owenspride Absolute Aplomb RN
aka "Parsnip" 
D.O.B. 4/25/08
( Ch. Brookside's Worth the Weight CGC X Ch. Sherwood's Anticipatience RE CGC)
(OFA Good, OFA Elbows normal, CERF normal, Cardiac Pending)

When we recieved the written critique of Patience from Judge Windham ;( Bucks Co. K.C.; Best of Breed; 2007)
I was struck by a phrase she used to describe Patience's movement. She said she moved about the ring with "absolute aplomb. "
At that moment, I thought, "Wow, if I ever have a bitch puppy out of Patience that reminds me of her , I will name her Absolute Aplomb."
Parsnip is that puppy!!
In particular I love her expressiveness; her "spunk" , her loving nature, her brilliance,her striking pigment and clear coat,
 her silouette...she has her mother's lovely length of body. 

NEW TITLE, Rally Novice! Sept. 19 2010, Cape Cod Kennel Club. ( see video of her doing it, above!)
 Parsnip scored a 99 on her second leg, placing FIRST in a class of 20 entries!!!
And these were all more traditional obedience dogs. No mastiffs but her!
