GCh. Anchor Creek Celtic Queen
Boudica was a wild woman! Full of vim and vigor, she approached life at full speed in everything she did. Her tail swirled with joy. She seemed to have a smile on her face. Stairs should never be mounted slowly, but at a full run. Boudica was a problem solver. When she was just eight weeks old, she played with a rope toy that was too long to carry without tripping. She identified the issue and then folded it carefully into thirds so she could zoom around with it. A quizzical look would appear on her face when faced with challenges and she quickly developed a work around to allow her to proceed with whatever she wanted to do!
We had a good swimmer with Boudica. At the North Carolina Outer Banks, she plunged into the water and paddled around for hours. She prefered to be in water too deep to touch bottom.
Snow brought out the maniacal Boudica where she ran and leapt and got a crazed look in her eyes and face…all from joy!
Boudica would savage any stuffed animal toy in her house, but had no interest in real animals. The rabbits in her yard likely could hop across her paws!
Boudica also was attentive to all around her. She rarely missed much and loved to monitor who walked near our house.
Boudica had beautiful conformation, a lush and thick coat and a fantastic head. She was a large girl; hopefully her size will contribute to the Leonberger gene pool with giant size progeny.
Boudica finished as a Champion with three five point majors in three shows. She was also a Grand Champion! She was a great show dog, but an even better family dog!
Boudica was closely bonded to Jennifer and was never more than a few feet away from her.
We miss our beautiful Boudica.
