Candu was a very bright and energetic dog full of joy and enthusiasm. He was the only male in a litter of eight. He was a nephew of our 3-year-old dog Tyson who was exceptionally sweet and tragically killed in an accident. The name: Hawley’s Thinking Positive call name Candu came from the loss of Tyson.

Candu more than lived up to his name. He was always ready to go. He sailed through the Hunt tests needed for his Junior and Senior Hunter Titles. His quest for his Master Hunter Title was interrupted by a serious leg injury that left him with a fused right wrist. Once healed he returned with full speed to get his Master Hunter Title.

Candu was an exceptional “Marker” and he always came back with his birds.

He qualified for Master Nationals in 2017 & 2018, although I did not enter him in these events. He qualified to run in the 2019 Master Amateur Invitational and he was scheduled to run in this major hunt test event but Lymphoma took him two weeks prior to the Master Amateur Invitational.

Thanks to cancer we will never know what Candu could have accomplished. Please consider donating to Chase Away K-9 Cancer. Too many good dogs have gone before their time.

We will miss his bright eyes and enthusiasm and watching him run. God he loved to run!

A donation was made in Candu's memory and the memorial was created on June 10, 2019.
