Am/Can Ch Deluxe Dynamite Extrordinair
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.
Deluxe Dynamite First Lady
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.
