  1. The Pedigree

    June 27, 2009 by MyEye

    With help from Mandy, Holly and Kathy, we’ve filled in all the blanks on the Chase/Phoebe puppy pedigree.  See below!  Thanks everyone. For Chase and Phoebe, I am working on a “call name” pedigree. I’m still missing a few call names, but this is what it looks like. It’s full of producers!  Click to make it readable.  If you’d like a copy, leave a comment and I’ll send it to you.  Tell me if you want it in Xcel, .pdf, or .jpeg — or all three.  Since I use the “moderation” option, I’ll have your email address so please do not include it in the comment.


  2. We Need to be Thinking of Names

    June 27, 2009 by MyEye

    I love litter themes and bombarded you all with themes and potential names when you were expecting puppies.  Now it will be your turn.  I have two theme ideas — either Book Awards, e.g. Caldecott, Newbury, Pulitzer, Nobel, Booker, Commonwealth, EMMA, Hammett — or Newspapers, e.g., Clarion, Chronicle, Daily Planet,  Journal, Tribune, Herald, Observer, etc.  I would really like to use the entire name of a paper as in “Wall ST Journal”, “Washington Post”, “Times Picayune”, but with all the kennel names that need to fit, that’s probably out of reach.  I doubt we could pay AKC enough for all the letters we’d need.  Just the kennel names and spaces come out to 22.  36 is permitted and you may pay for up to 40 letters!

    The Shepherd litters were alphabetical, so if I picked up where I left off thirty years ago, this post would be brought to you by the letter “K”.  Themes are more fun, I think.

    So, have at it — with my thanks!
