Happy Birthday Coral!

Coral has a smile for everyone.

The smiling brownie is 13 today!  Ch. Paisley Snowood Family Ties CGC ROM came to Paisleyland at 7 weeks of age, bred by our friend Meg but linebred on my beloved "Rob" and a granddaughter of my BiS "Morris".  Coral is one of the happiest, friendliest dogs I have ever owned, and definitely the smiliest.  She finished her championship with a nice record due to a lot of patience on Jess's part, since Coral assumed that all dog shows were social events arranged just for her.

Coral produced several fine litters for us and is the dam of our own Watson and grandma of Josie, who still share the sofa with her.  She has her Register Of Merit for producing 6 champions, and had a number of other quality offspring that no one got around to finishing.  Coral's kids consistently inherited her cheerful trustworthy personality.

Coral has been retired to housepet status for many years and is Ron's soulmate, just as her great-grandmother Eloise was long ago.

We're all celebrating with crockpot turkey meatloaf, sweet potatoes and ice cream tonight.  Happy Birthday, Coral!
