Eli is STILL the 2nd top Canadian Bred Sire in Canadian History with a total of 53 Champions (second only to Ryan O'Neil)


In Memory of
March 29, 1992 - October 6, 2000

We sincerely appreciate the messages of comfort directed to Ted, Debbie Moore (Fairfax)  and myself. We thank all of you that have bred to him and supported this wonderful family of dogs.

At the time of his death, Eli had sired 46 Canadian Champions, and 6 American Champions. His record now stands at 53 Canadian Champions 1 OTCH  and 11 American Champions. He is the sire of multiple ROMC.  He was truly a "once in a lifetime" dog and we will miss him terribly. May his legacy live on in his children and grandchildren.

It is with heartfelt sadness, yet with a great sense of accomplishment, that I write to extend my warmest thoughts to you on the passing of "Eli" - CH. BONNYVILLE'S FAIRFAX NIGHTHAWK ROMC.

It gives me an incredible feeling of pride to know that people like yourselves have worked diligently and with tremendous dedication and professionalism, to promote and carry on this excellent family of Shelties that we all treasure.

"Eli's" record as a sire is extremely noteworthy, and he represented the continuance of a line of Shelties known for their beautiful type and expression, as well as outstanding temperament and personality. It was a great responsibility, that "Eli" has fulfilled with the exceptional quality that he has produced.

Go now, not to mourn, but to celebrate the wonderful life that you gave and shared with "Eli", and the tremendous legacy he has left behind in all of his children and grand-children. "Eli" is happy now, as he has gone to stand beside "Tate" and "Sonny" - his own place in the sun, with the "great ones".
