Introducing Sno Pond’s (something) at Shirescot
I picked up a beautiful brindle girl yesterday! Violet is a silver brindle like her mother (Thyme), her grandmother (Jenny) and her uncle (Harley). There may be a little red in there from her father (Calvin). She’s a little kissy face girl! And her tail goes about a mile a minute!! Violet has a broad front, good tail set and so far a great set of teeth. I’ll post a picture after she settles down (she won’t stay still long enough to get a good photo right now).
We picked the name Violet because there was a Scottish female poet named Violet Jacob (nee Erkskine). She was a poet, painter and a novelist, born into the House of Dun on the east coast of Scotland. She was born on September 1, 1863 and died on September 9, 1946. We found out after choosing her name that Violet’s breeder’s grandmother was also named Violet.
We’re looking for a show home for Violet — she definitely has show potential. She is out of Thyme (Sno Pond) and Calvin (Shirescot).
I was excited when I looked through her mother’s pedigree yesterday — there are dog names I recognize there from our previous line and our current line. It’s a small world!
