Troi’s pedigree is one of international splendor. Her grandsire was a Cruft’s Junior warrant winner and her granddam an Australian Champion. Co-owned and loved by Kathy and Chris Coates, Troi became Emily’s second junior handling dog. The very first time Emily presented her in the juniors ring , they handily won Best Junior. Troi had an incredible circular wag and was one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever loved. On Valentine’s Day she passed away gently at the age of 15 years and 10 months.
