NZ Sire of the year 2017

2015 Adopted by Natalie McCartney Lane and Lincoln Lane

A super racedog Sergio was successful winning on both sides of the Tasman.Upon retirement and after stud duties Sergio was adopted by Natalie and Lincoln in Drury.He quickly adjusted to the life of a very spoilt pet and became their daughter Apolimas bestie and Lincolns running partner.
In February 2017 Sergio survived a horrific dog attack while out on a walk with Lincoln.
At this years NZGRA awards for the third consecutive year Sergio was named Sire of the year.
It is with great sadness I have been asked to let you all know that on Monday Sergio was diagnosed by veterinarian Steve McGill with an aggressive form of bone cancer.
Due to his age and the severity of the cancer their options were limited.
Sam returned home on Monday night to spend time with his family.
Today 10am Sam at peace.
Love to Natalie Lincoln and Apolima.
R.I.P Sergio aka Sam

PAWNOTE
Dogszone will do a tribute to Sergio on Monday 27th November.

I had a puppy that the vet damaged his back leg attempting to pull him out at birth. I had the xrays and all the advice given and I was told he would need to be put down or have his back leg amputated.He did not appear in pain and was just so much magic in my life it wasn't funny. I reluctently went with the advice and went for the amputation. The call from the vet telling me my boy never woke from the operation shatters me to this day. You don't have to be a Sergio to be loved ..
