“Lister” – Can.Ch. Rangoria’s Optimus Prime VADC TT CGC HCT
January 14, 1994 – March 31, 2008
owner: Sharalene Speidel, Burnaby BC Canada

Lister was from my first litter, my first Bouvier boy. I had always wanted a boy Bouvier, and I was not disappointed. He finished his Canadian Championship at 9 months of age. He was shown in the US (8 pts plus a major), but didn’t enjoy it so we stopped. He did some herding, and eventually found agility to be more his thing. He earned his agility title at the age of 7. We joined the Royal City Rockets Dog Agility Team and began doing shows for community events. Lister loved that … loved to put on a show, and reveled in the response from the crowd.

As he aged, he spent all his time with me, going to work, traveling to shows. He enjoyed going to visit his doggy and people friends, and a stop for a cheeseburger on the way was always a welcome treat. He
had a great sense of humor as many of our Bouvs do. He was always a gentleman, and always ready to greet you with a tail wag and a smile.

An easy going dog, he way a joy to live with, a comfort to have in the home.

There is an empty place there and in my heart.
