"Travis"
BISS Am/Intl Ch. Arista's Magic Man, CGC
 
       Bred by: Karen & HS Alexander, Arista Kennels

     Travis was a very special and soulful boy! His birthday was 10/17/1993 and he passed away on 11/16/2007 at 14 years of age.

     Out of the ring, Travis was an excellent Therapy Dog. Travis was very sweet and gentle with the patients. The nurses at the Laguna Beach Hospital would ask us to go to the long term care ward to see a few special patients. These were the folks who needed him most and he loved to visit them. Unfortunately, the hospital discontinued its therapy dog program.

     Travis was the wise old man of the house. "Handsome" was his favorite nickname as well as "Boobie". For more pictures of Travis visit his Photo Gallery.

     I am very proud of Travis´ achievements in the show ring. Here are few special memories:

     • Veteran Dog at the ISCA National Specialty-2002
