Ike
Am/Can Ch Deluxe Dynamite Extrordinair
"Ike"
1993 ~ 2009

It is with deep sadness that we tell you of the loss of the one and only Mr. Ike Lux. Ike has been a strong presence in our lives for the past 15 and a half years. Ike, an American and Canadian show champion Dalmatian, continued to show up to the age of 10. Ike was always distinguished in the ring by his beautiful head and flying, open side-gait. He enjoyed a full life even after retirement. Ike will be loved, cherished and remembered by Ron and Julie forever. We are deeply grateful to have had the joy and privilege of life with Ike for the past 15 plus years.


Courtney Marie
Deluxe Dynamite First Lady
"Courtney Marie"
1993 - 2009

Courtney Marie was, in every sense of the word, the first lady of Deluxe. Our first female and -- while she never let her dad, Gucci, know it -- the true top dog of the family. Courtney passed away peacefully in her sleep on the afternoon of September 22, 2009, just a week short of five months after her brother, Ike, passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I always said that Courtney never did anything she didn't want to do, including showing, which she hated, and that held true to the end. First, last and always, Courtney Marie did it her way. She, like Ike, is loved and missed beyond measure. Courtney Marie Lux was one of a kind and it is truly the end of an era at Deluxe.

We are comforted in knowing that both Ike and Courtney Marie are with their dad, Gucci, along with our first Dalmatian "Uncle" Archie Goodwin, Quincy B. Foxhound and Roam and Beau, our first black Labs. They are all young and strong again.

MEET PEARL
Recently, our good friend and breeder of our dear Gucci, Paula Miller McGowan, honored us with the opportunity to show her lovely young bitch, Royalty's Pearl On Montazh, co-owned by Walter Polaski. We are delighted announce that this beautiful (and beautifully moving) girl finished her championship with a four-point major in September. Thank you, Paula! It was great fun to be back in the Dal ring again.
