< Medio, age seven, son of Skinny and Liller, sweet spirit of Summer Place Kennel, leader and pal of the five dog walking gang, gazelle like runner, was terrified of thunder. We had just repaired two gates he had ripped apart in storms this summer, but it was not enough to hold him in yesterday. He tore his way out in a storm and ran into something that killed him instantly on the highway, early a.m. We are stunned and deeply saddened by this tragic loss , so sad. He had raced various sprint races and the Jackpine 30 with Julia. He was welcomed in any pen by any of the dogs. He was a shy,special, sweet and wonderful dog, with unlimited endurance and speed. We love you and miss you, Medio. Godspeed!
