We have a secret you and I, that we both understand.
See, you’re not gone, I feel you still, your nose against my hand.
And only I reach out and touch, the living warmth of you.
As your body leans on me, with that nudge you always do.
And only I will walk our land, and know you follow me.
I feel you moving close behind, red coat blowing in the breeze.
And only I can see you play, in the stream we often passed.
And when I call you, only I, can see the moving grass.
Skyewood Always An Answer with Leonz
CH Skyewood Exquisite Edge
24/09/2010 - October 2020
Annie was born here at Skyewood, and was a lovely big girl with the most wonderfully affectionate temperament. She was another of our Leos who just loved to swim, play and eat! She was the kind of girl who would sit on your feet, and if you didn’t pat her, her big foot will come up and give you a ‘nudge’ to remind you that she was there. She is the mother of our lovely boy Boris, and our beautiful girl Alice. We love you Annie Panni, and you will always be close to us in your lovely children who all have the same loving and kind hearts.

NZCH Teamaides Gorgeous George (Sweden)
18/02/2004 - 26/02/2014
George was my most beautiful boy, sent to us by Sanna Johanssen from the Teamaides kennel in Sweden.
Over the years he gave us much pleasure, both as a family member and in the show ring. He has produced some beautiful children, grandchildren, and great grand children, and we are grateful to have had him in our lives.I wanted to keep him with me so much longer, I loved him so much. He was the most special and the most beautiful boy, and he was my friend. Thank you Sanna, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing him to be a part of my life.

CH Lejongardens Fjall (Skye)
3/01/1998 - November 2005
Skye was our first Leo, and the one single reason we so fell in love with this breed. We purchased her in January 1998. Her sire is Leona’s Arro (Norway) and her dam is Gep’s Big Bears She’s Leaving Home (Sweden).
She always liked to stay close to me and if I stood still long enough she would sit on my feet. Many visitors were also treated to this demand for affection!
Thank you Skye for being the wonderful dog you were, and the pleasure and companionship you gave me over your lifetime. You touched the hearts of many, and will always be remembered with love. I miss you, and there is a special place in my heart that will always be yours.
CH Roanoak Beauregard (Australia)
26/12/2002 - May 2012
I remember the day Tassie arrived in New Zealand from Australia. There was a mix up at the airport, and I was frantic with worry. He finally came through the MAF station, walked calmly out of his crate, and began eating the chicken necks I had brought along for him. He certainly wasn’t a bit fazed. He stayed that way for the rest of his life with us. He knew who he was, what he wanted and who he loved. He eventually became the ‘boss man’ here at Skyewood and ruled absolutely.
His passing was sudden and not expected. He has left a big space…he was always nearby, as close as he could get to his people. We miss him.
