In loving memorie of Markie

Multi champion CharSu American Sunshine



I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
His gentle head upon my knee
And share his silent thoughts with me...

He'll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more his favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called him to His golden throne.

Although me eyes are filled with tears,
I thank Him for the happy years
He let him spend down here with me
And for his love and loyalty.

When it is time for me to go
And join him there, this much I know...
I shall not fear the transient dark
For him will greet with his bark.

Our Sunshine isnít with us anymore


Markie came in our life at june 8th 1995,as a 12 weeks old puppy,flying from California USA.

He came he saw,he won!! Wow what a dog!!

His character was to die for,such a sunny boy,what gave us a lot of joy and happyness !!

He never was a problem with our other dogs.

Thats the reason his name was American Sunshine,allways happy,and coming from California,a sunny part of the USA.

Through te years we visited a lot of shows.........

He loved it to be in the ring,and walked the stars from heaven!

A litlle 'come on boy' was enough to let him go around the ring,head up,very glorious!!

Markie won a lot of titles in all those shows we went with him.

One of the headlight was the worldwinnershow in Milan ,Italy in 2000, the millennium year.

There he went best of Breed out of 100 TT entered!!

He was the first Tibetan Terrier what gained the Dutch veteran title in 2007.

There he was allready 12 years old.

Markie stole many hearts from people seeing or meeting him in person..........


But one day at the end of august he got very sick.

Unfortunately it was not treatable!!

It was so hard to let him go,but we didnt want him to suffor from pain.

On a sunny sunday morning, the 28th of september he went over the rainbowbridge.

He gave us so much,we miss him dearly!!!

Thank you Diane and Sue to let us have him!!!




Underneath you can see all the titles he gained, and some pictures through the years....
