Patia at 12 years
Tiny, spoiled and way too cute to ever get in trouble for the trouble she got into, Little Hypatia would win the vote as both all-time favorite and all-time worst behaved. In the ring, she could be incredibly showy one minute, then decide she was through and have a total everyone-from-rings-around-staring tantrum the next. Just because. And once she started, that was it. Nonetheless, she held on enough times to win four majors, including Winners at the SCOA Eastern Regional, plus another 5-pointer at a supported entry. Nobody ever suggested specialing her.
Our eternal puppy, Patia lived to be 15 1/2, insistent and incorrigible to the end.
