Following a brilliant career and still a very active leader of the Leacaz Team; Bob was retired from stud and major competition in 2016; but has left a legacy of many
Award Winning Offspring to carry on his successful line.
He still enjoyed training and was fully active during his retirement living with me until his passing on the 4th June 2020.
He will always remain
my very special dog.
