Ch Hodges Chambray of Crisanda

Our dear sweet Smudgie passed quietly away on January 7, 2002. After all of her 16+ years, her beauty still needed no explanation. As a gracious old lady she was still beautiful,sound, and a pleasure to behold. She will be missed greatly.

Smudge was a beautifully sound bitch with such a pretty face. In limited showing she finished her championship quickly and enjoyed the comforts that growing old should bring.....large quanities of sunshine, naps, and cookies!! In limited breeding she produced several champion offspring, and I am honored to have bred such a lovely bitch. Due to the kindness of Lynae Beardsley of Lone Tree Papillons, we have a beautiful Am & Can Ch. Smudge grandson, "Jett" out of Smudge's handsome son, CH. Lone Tree's Honor Guard. Now a piece of our Smudgie and the Hodges line will live on through him. Thank you Lynae for this priceless gift.

These last photos taken of our beloved Smudgie just three weeks before her death still showing her beautiful face. Her outstanding quality and beauty was always there, even as old age embraced her.

Rest in peace dear Smudgie. We will miss you deeply.

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forever more
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

The beautiful Papillons that grace the pages of this website took over 30 years of pedigree research, skill, knowledge, heartache and dedication, and as a result Crisanda is able to produce lovely, typey Papillons today.
