"Stryker" - Am/Can Ch Koping's Tale of Stryking Rich CD TD RA AGX AGIJ CGN / Am CD RA AGN AGNJ ----------- Aug 22, 1999 - Jan 28, 2015

It is with deep deep sadness I tell you all that today Stryker passed on… Stryker was an amazing dog, I have had dogs all my life but he is without a doubt the most loyal dog I have ever had the pleasure of having in my home.  Anything I wanted to do Stryker said okay we can try it…we may not ever have been the best at anything but Stryker and I together tried so many new adventures.
I still remember so clearly the first time going to meet the “Tale” litter and being so impressed with how much care and knowledge the breeder ( as Pat was known then) was sharing with me..Stryker would be my first Koping dog..and also was part of forming my friendship with Pat…
My first show dog…I still remember that first show…and saying to Pat if he doesn’t like this we aren’t going to keep doing it right , well both Stryker and I had a blast and he went Best of Breed…we were hooked…well more I was but I very proudly put his Canadian Championship on him…another first for me.  After that for his American Championship I happily passed it on to Pat to finish that title.  I so clearly remember flying with Stryker to my first American Nationals…it was so exciting and fun..although I was a bit nervous flying my dog for the first time ever…Stryker handled it just like he does most things and it didn’t bother him at all.
I remember when Pat asked if I would be into showing him to get his championship and my answer was sure but mostly I wanted a working dog and don’t want to do much travelling…. Well it makes me smile to think of that answer and of all the miles Stryker and I have travelled together over the last 15 years. 
He was my first dog to get a CD, in Canada and the US, also my first dog to get a Tracking Title…anything I wanted to try Stryker was always okay let’s give it a try..
He was my protector, my buddy and my kind loving boy…
Stryker will leave a huge hole in my heart and home that no matter who else enters it will never be filled…thanks for always being there for me Stryker …

Harley was much loved, will be much missed. He has left us with endless stories and taught us more than any other dog could have about patience, understanding and unconditional love.
