What can I say about Cayenne, my first Vallhund and the reason for me falling in love with this breed. She was a willing worker and a wonderful partner. She was my little cheerleader, loving everyone and happy about everything we did together. She charmed everyone at a time when no one knew what a Swedish Vallhund was.
Cayenne would have been a very good herding dog; she just had an inexperienced handler. At 11 years old, Cayenne went to her first national specialty and qualified in the Most Versatile Vallhund competition. She qualified in rally, herding and agility.
She left me at 15.5 years old and was happy until the very end. I still miss her.
Cayenne was OFA Good, PennHIP scores of .31 and .56. She had clear CERFs in 2000, 2003
