Vale - CH Valmar's Sage V Wustenwind BROM 4/9/93-17/6/06

We were so very sad to hear that our friend Lee Meadows put his Sage to rest today. Sage was bred by L Meadows & J Valdez & E Roe and owned by Joan & Lee. Val first met Lee & Sage many many years ago and this lead to our beautiful Rosie being such a huge part of Greydove. Val imported semen from Sage to be bred to Taliya and hence Rosie was born. In Australia Sage produced 7 Champions & 9 in the USA, many of these dogs are also accomplished in other fields including in Australia Best in Show winners/Royal winners & a Grand Champion. We are proud to be using Sage semen for one of our Spring litters to carry on his name... Vale dear Sage.
