It’s been long enough since I did a dog roundup post that we’ve got a whole new crop of kiddos to show off. Don’t worry – nobody’s been lost or forgotten, and we still have all the beloved girls at home. But three years means some beautiful new members of the future generations.
This is Rooster, White Raven Wake Up Call. He’s a Juno kid, from last year’s lovely litter with Hoover (Ch. All Trade Dr Who, an import from Norway). He just turned a year old and he is super delicious. He’s got four points now in one weekend of showing, and he’s heading out for his second weekend with Sarah in Connecticut.
Rooster lives with and is loved by a fabulous family in Maine, and comes home for shows and vacations. He’s absolutely a delight – he is the kind of dog that makes you think you want more intact dogs!
This is Sora – Ch. White Raven Storm the Sorrows. He is just about at his second birthday, if I remember correctly – he’s a Porter/Eva kiddo. The Porter/Eva kids were co-bred by Sarah and me and born and raised at my house, so they have a very special place in my heart.
Sora is a Clue grandson, which means he inherited the Bad Dog gene in SPADES. Look at his wicked intentions!
Sora also got to make some babies with Bella (GCH Aurigan Dunes Celestine Blue) this spring – this little insect is one of them. Lyra is her litter name, and she’s going to go out and live with a junior handler on the West Coast.
Look at those eyes and ears!
This is Lash – White Raven Angelfire. We had the opportunity to lease a bitch from our good friend Kate last year, and bred her to Ch. Pecan Valley Red White and Blue. We kept two girls – Vala, who you met in the last post, and Lash. Lash lives with Sarah, but she got to come home with me this weekend for a few weeks. What a SWEETHEART she is. She’s really won us over.
She’s also freakishly photogenic.
This little demonstration of exactly how big Cardigan ears can be is Vita, the result of Hoover and Luna (AKC Ch UKC GrCH Kingscourt Dragon Moon on the Moors). She’s an absolute darling and is heading out to her new home soon; she’ll be a therapy dog someday. And of course you get to see Honour, who still tolerates me dragging her everywhere dog-related with remarkable good grace.
Lyra’s big brother (another Sora/Bella kid) is Indus, who is one of the keeper puppies from that litter. He got to come home with us too, while Sarah was at the shows.
Isn’t he delicious?
Stacked shot of Lash – we absolutely love our Red kids.
So now you’ve gotten caught up or met a bunch of the Kimball/Davis house dogs: Juno, Vala, Rebel, Echo (who went home with Sarah this weekend to start her serious performance training – she loves it already), Rooster, Sora, Lash, and Indus. There’s more to come, and of course the kids are a foot taller than they were! Look for more pictures soon – and hugs from all of us.
