How he got his name....
"Cruise" earned his name by the unique entrance he made into this world.... told by my vet that "Phoebe" was only having one puppy, Cruise's littermate was born at the vet's office uneventfully and we were sent home.
Traveling 70mph on US-95 North in Las Vegas, what a surprise to have "Phoebe" deliver puppy #2 in the front seat of the car! He was nick-named "Freeway" by the office staff at the vet, and after I decided to keep him, I re-named "Cruise.
When Cruise was 14 months old, I approached Ilona about the possibility of sending him to her in Europe. She took him on the ride of his life. To see Cruise's show ring accomplishments, click HERE.
Cruise is a proven Champion producer. He produces Irish and Brown. Very limited frozen semen available in the United States. Please contact Kathy Maguire for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
With grateful and heartfelt appreciation to Ilona for everything she did to make Cruise shine... and to Anneke for loving him in his retirement.
