1994 – 2007
This is a tribute to a beautiful little tan and white broken coated bitch born here at Thimble Farm in September of 1994. She gave me her all every day whether on the sofa, running about the farm, in the hunt field, in the show ring, or in the whelping box. If there ever was perfection in my mind, she was that perfection.
Having fought congestive heart failure for the last few years, she let me know that it was time to go so she could see her mother, Clay Dale Twigg, and her father, Thimble Farm Target, in the big beyond. It may have not been the best time for me to let her go, but it was the best time for her to be released. Her work here was done and she was tired.
Clever is survived here on the farm by her daughter Dancer and her son Bamm. She is survived by many other beautiful offspring around the country. We are all mourning her passing; and although she can never be replaced, we will remember her fondly as having made her mark so grandly and with elegance and class.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
We love you Clever.
