Farmcliff Blaze 1985 - 2001

Blaze was in the very first litter whelped by Farmcliff and as such held a very special place in our Kennel for over 15 years. She wasn't much to look at, but had the flexible kind of terrier body that could "weazle" her way into any hole and as such she was probably the finest hunter we ever bred. Blaze earned a JRTCA Bronze Medallion with woodchuck, opossum and raccoon quarries. She got the woodchuck at 2 years of age, but then she became Genie's first agility competitor and Therapy Dog so she was subsequently kept busy competing in agility and visiting hospitals. Blaze was so calm and loving that the hospitals always had her visit with their senior citizens.

Along the way, on her own during walks in the woods, Blaze found several woodchucks and opossums, but it wasn't until she was 10 years old that Bob took her out again with a JRTCA judge. Blaze found and entered a small hole and Bob and the judge sat there for 1/2 hour hearing nothing. Finally, Bob started working with his locator and couldn't find her at first, but by making ever bigger concentric circles, he finally located her 30 feet away and down 6 feet. The subsequent dig found her with an opossum. The opossum was carefully placed back in its den after a photo was taken. See Hunting Photos page for a picture of Blaze with her opossum. Blaze got her third quarry, raccoon, the next year at 11 years of age.

Since Blaze was our first Farmcliff puppy, she occupies a very special place in our memories. In another sense, Blaze was a true "working dog" in that for 10 years she went every day with Genie to Genie's Glastonbury Tack Shop where she was a customer favorite greeting everyone who came in the shop. But, when Blaze was at home, she loved lying in front of the stove in the winter and was always a willing companion in whatever endeavor Genie or Bob wanted to do whether it was a trip to the grocery store, a hike in the woods of just quitely sleeping on the couch beside one of us in the evening.
