Ch Supernova Powerplay v Denmel -LC11D “Hayley”
Am/Can Ch Wingate’s Johnny Angel x Can Ch Royolyn Sports Page
Sadly, Hayley went to the Rainbow Bridge on May 30/12, at 11 years 1 month of age. This is a good long life for any dobe, but amazing considering she was diagnosed with CAH prior to 3 yrs of age. We will miss her dearly. We were thrilled when Catherine Eiswerth of Supernova Dobermans leased Xena, and we kept Hayley from that litter out of Axel. Hayley is one of 5 Champions from this litter. Hayley was bred once to Shelby (BISS Am Ch Richwyn’s Hot Rod) via frozen semen which produced 10 lovely babies. She was the best mom we have had as far as feeding her 10 babies and tolerating their antics. We showed 3 of her offspring to their Canadian Championships in 2004 which gave Hayley the ADPC award for Dam of the year 2004.
Soon after her litter our health testing showed Hayley with elevated liver enzymes. After several blood tests, bile acid test and a liver biopsy, she was diagnosed with CAH (previously known as Copper Toxicosis). Hayley was treated with dietary changes and natural supplements only, and lived to over 11 years of age. Her daughters Mira and Seven were tested before being bred and showed no sign of any liver problems.
