Our heartfelt thanks go to :

Ann & Mike Jackman without whose friendship this would not have been possible. For patiently and lovingly raising Deke for us and looking after his every need until the decision could be made on him emigrating to Australia.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

 

This litter was named using the theme of Ice Hockey, the names of players and others famous in the sport and hockey terminologies.

 

DEKE – A term used in sports, and particularly in Ice Hockey, to describe the act of a feinting move or decoy used by a player to pass an opponent.

LEMIEUX (in French meaning “the best”) – Mario Lemieux is recognized as one of the legends and champions of the Ice Hockey world. He was also recognized as the foremost exponent of the “deke”.

When reading of the life of Mario Lemieux, we could think of no better player after whom a Rottweiler could be named, a true champion and a courageous man who overcame many obstacles in life to reach the pinnacle of his sport.

Deke

 


Mario Lemieux


In one of the many articles about this champion, the following description is recorded:

 

“He was big and strong but rarely had to bully his way through defenders, sending them flying instead with deft fakes and dekes. In him, the attributes of the pure scorer and the playmaker were fused and his size, reach and balance made his end-to-end rushes seem effortless. In a few long strides, with a twist of those wide shoulders and quick change of direction, he found space on the ice where previously the way had been closed. Forced to choose between his accurate and heavy shot or his long arms reaching around them with a sweeping move, goalies were often left shaking their heads while they retrieved the puck from the net. Rarely has a sport’s dominant player made the game look so easy and natural”.

 

“Mario Lemieux has a considerable number of records, and stands in comparison along with Wayne Gretzky as one of the best NHL players of all time”.
