Ch Strathraer Hyland Brae

Sire: Oaklodge Strauss   Dam: Ch Ferndarra Gamerunner
4/4/1991 - 9/1/2004

Hips 2,2(4) . Final Clear Eye & Heart Cert


Stroy aged 8 years

"Stroyka" went to rainbow bridge in early January 2004, he has left a huge void in the Camuka family, and will always be missed, a once in a life time dog. He was a delight to own, and excelled in breed type and quality. He was a wonderful showman, and until recently still a big clown, always with a ball in his mouth. Stroy had limited showing due to family commitments, but his quality was recognized by many and he consistently did well under breed specialists and had numerous in show and group wins. 

Stroy was retired from the show ring at the age of 9.5 years. As the oldest dog competing at GRCV National show  he was awarded 5th place in open dog class, from a class of nearly 40 dogs. This was a huge thrill as this was Stroys last show.

Stroy has been part of the Responsible Pet Programme in Victoria and delighted in visiting schools with me. He was sadly retired due to ill health.


CH Strathraer Hyland Brae "Stroyka" who passed away on 9/1/2004 - aged 12.5 years

" Stroy"

A once in a life time dog

I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one,
    I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles now my life is done,
    I'd like to leave an echo, whispering softly down the waves,
    Of happy times and playful times
    And bright and sunny days
    I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun,
    Of happy memories that I leave now my life is done.

Stroy aged 9.5 yrs at GRCV National 2000

As a sire he has produced some lovely puppies, including Camuka Caitlin's Gold, who was awarded PUPPY OF THE YEAR 1996/97, Katie was virtually un beaten in all classes, and was also awarded Puppy Bitch at the 1997 Melbourne Royal, she has many in show and group wins to her credit. We are very proud to have his son Archie, and litter sister Sophie to carry on his name. We wish Fernfall Picture Perfect the best of luck with her show career.
