|Lucas (now Louis) at 8 weeks|
Tonight I'll be dropping by our obedience school to take a look at Louis, who was Lucas in the Arbok (Argus/Reebok) litter. His owner Eloise reports that Louis is doing well, and is a lively, happy, outgoing fellow. Really anxious to see him again. He was sold "with strings" - Louis is their family dog, but I have the right to show him if I wish. Louis is the family's third Dal from us and we knew they would do a good job with him. We showed their Watson son Pepito for awhile, but Pepito was a quiet laid back sort of guy who didn't really enjoy dog show weekends, so we decided he'd be happier just living as a companion. Since Louis is a son of enthusiastic outgoing Argus, and was such a cheerful outgoing puppy, it's likely that he'll also enjoy dog shows. Time to take a look at him and evaluate him for soundness, and to see how his bite, tail and size look at 8 months. We probably won't start him 'til summer, perhaps getting him ready to show in June at the Chicagoland Specialty. Louis and his sister Letty may both make their debuts that weekend.
|Bennett/Crystal liver boy|
Wish I could find a home like Louis's for this handsome liver boy from the Bennett/Crystal litter. He's larger than his littermates at 7 weeks and because Crystal is a rather tall bitch, this boy might possibly be too big to show, but if his size holds he could be spectacular. What he needs is what we call a "watch home", where he could go as companion, but be shown later if he lives up to his promise. Anyone looking for a super sound, very handsome and well marked liver boy, preferably in the Chicago area (near Meg & Cheryl) or in the Twin Cities (near me)?
