Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
'Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far

And Grace will lead me home.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease,

I shall possess, within the veil,

Berbie on the Beach

I remember assisting in Qismet's c-section and

personally reviving Berbie. 

I remember a 5 week old Berbie who loved crawling up
on Mark's shoulder and surveying her domain from that


I remember 2 year old Berbie singlehandedly taking

hares at the beach. 

I remember 3 year old Berbie dominating her SCC hunt


I remember her first AKC points won under JAVA, and

her many specialty reserves. 

I remember her gently holding Dale Wright's hand in
her mouth so he couldn't pet her because he stunk of


I remember delivering her puppies and what a wonderful

mother she was. 

I remember her sharing the recliner with me for a
couple of hours almost every evening. 

An alpha bitch who was fiercely devoted to me.  I
still wake up at 2 am waiting for that familiar 'yip'
asking me to move over and make her a space on the bed
so she can curl up in my chest. 

And as Zam-Zam and Hammaze lived on in Qismet, and as
Qismet lived on in Berbie, so shall Berbie live on in
her children.  And I feel blessed to share my life
with such wonderful creatures.
