BISS GCh. Cullivoe Black Forest, "Forrest", was our Ch. Apple Acres Oddysey Armani ROM son out of our
GCh. Cullivoe Ocean of Blue, "Marina". He was a very striking bi-black, with a soft expression and smooth,
lean head. He had wonderful, true, free flowing movement, and loved to move around the ring with zest! I
could hardly keep up with him!. He also had a terrific, fun loving temperment, and LOVED the show ring!

Show Career
He finished in grand style with 4 pt. back-to-back majors. One at the Des Moines SSC and then at the
Des Moines KC the next day to finish. We moved him up to Best of Breed the next day, and he won Best
of Breed over 4 specials to put the icing on a very memorable weekend! Forrest finished his Grand
Championship at the Des Moines SSC on the
same date as he finished his regular championship...just five
years later! He accomplished his Grand with four majors...three 5 pt majors and one 4pt major. He
finished out his show career with numerous group placements, and 65 Best of Breeds! All owner handled.

Sadly, he was diagnosed with Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder in August of 2010. He
received treatment at the University of Minnesota, but succumbed to the cancerous tumor on November
4, 2010, three months after his diagnosis. We were hopeful, but TCC is not a very treatable cancer and
does not carry a long life expectancy. We treated everyday as a gift, and when the time came, we walked
him to the edge of the bridge, and  helped him across before the impending pain became worse. He was
my show buddy, and will be greatly missed here at Cullivoe. For pedigree
