      In Memory of Ch. Pinafore Parrish Hill

Hillary was the foundation bitch for ParrisHill. 
After retirement she lived in Washington, DC, with her daughter Bettina until she passed peacefully in the arms of her devoted owner. 
The photo above was taken March 16, 2008; she turned 15 on July 1, still healthy and active.  Hillary was the oldest-living alumna of ParrisHill Standard Poodles.

Hillary led a truly charmed life.  She was a service dog who loved to travel.  She finished her championship shown by Kaz Hosaka.  She met Justice Sandra Day O'Connor; Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm; former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; and Roger Straus, one of the founders of the publishing house Farrar, Straus & Giroux.  She visited Random House in New York, she rode to the top of Seattle's Space Needle, and she went to San Francisco, Charleston, Philadelphia, and many more exciting cities.  She marched with Provost James J. O'Donnell in the New Student Convocation at Georgetown University, and her exploits with Bettina were featured twice in Poodle Review!  Until her twilight years, her days were filled with outdoor romps, and she loved leaping to catch tennis balls.
