We mourn the loss of O'Neill,
O'Neill died suddenly Wed night 9-8-04
At 14.5 yrs old he had been in apparent good health and spirits, still eating his meals with gusto, silly and happy as always, wagging his tail hard to go for walks. His sudden loss was a shock. His biggest influence and memory in our lives was his role as our amazing companion for the past 9 1/2 yrs.
He will be sorely missed.

O'Neill at 10 yrs old Best Veteran dog and AOM at the 2000 ABMC National

O’Neill was imported from Belgium in 1995 at 5.5 yrs of age - he is the sweetest, most willing and devoted dogs I have ever owned. 

(January 1999) O'Neill become the devoted companion and my folks a "spoiled house dog". My father turned into a "kooky" dog person like the rest of us, quick to tell "O'Neill" stories whenever given a chance. O'Neill also became my mothers faithful walking companion each morning for 2-3 miles at 6am. O'Neill was truly a dog who's life just kept getting better.

O’Neill had 3 litters in the United States, Trew Bleue’s “Music” litter (10-95), Roulet’s “Casino” litter (6-96), and Carousel’s “Rumor” litter (8-97).  O’Neill’s litters have produced - A Best in Specialty winner, the first Herding Champion Malinois, the first Dual Ch Malinois and the first and as of May 2009 6 yrs later still the only Champion Tracking and VST Malinois. O'Neill has produced multiple dogs with Breed Ch, Agility titled, Herding titled, Tracking Titled, obed titled and over all wonderful companions.

In the Herding arena - it is MY Opinion that No dog has had a greater positive influence than O'Neill. His legacy continues to grow. At the date I write this there are 5 Herding/Dual Champion Malinois 2 are O'Neill son (Traveler) and daughter (River) another a granddaughter (our breeds first Triple Ch -

(spring 2013 I hope to do some research in the next few months to update this info again)
In 2009 at the ABMC National Specialty the High Combined Herding trial dog as well as BISS show as an O'Neill Great Grandson, Avonlea American Idol - I continue to be proud of O'Neill's legacy.
Congrats to breeder Ann McKay and proud owner Lori Thomas
