Dasher

A Dream Come True

FullSizeRenderWe wanted to let you know how well our Dasher is doing. He continues to be all that we could have ever wanted. We just returned from a weekend in Truckee, his first snow experience, and he just loved it.

It got down to 18 degrees so we put a jacket on him and he was off grabbing every stick and pinecone that he could find. He noticed some grass weeds growing out from the snow and decided that he wanted to get to the roots. He buried his head under the snow and looked like an ostrich.  He came out of it covered in white and went back for more.

FullSizeRender[1]FullSizeRender[2]He is one of the smartest pups I have ever had. He has taken to obedience training extremely well. He has all the basics down, including coming to us (off leash) when called. Well most of the time…. Unless he has a pine cone in his mouth then its a 50/50 proposition, he does come, but reluctantly!  Shela, I remember you telling me that his mom ( Bernie) has the best temperament. Dasher is so balanced. He cuddles and plays gently until I kick it up a notch and get him going, then he settles right down and chills out. He has the BEST temperament. He and Dobby are best buds, and Dasher is just so beautiful to look at. We get compliments just about every time we go on a walk. He is built like a thoroughbred horse and is super healthy. Needless to say, we are beyond happy and are forever grateful for our Dasher.
Again thank you, Shela & Cliff, for all that you two do!

Breeder Comment

Thank you ever so much, Dave and Audrey, for this fantastic update. I think I remember telling you that Boone has such an excellent temperament. He is unflappable and very engaging. Bernie is Bernie–she is a great girl, who is sweet but she also is one who wants to be on the go–out chasing birds and hunting. She sometimes forgets to pay attention to the human when she sees something she wants to investigate. That being said, she is pretty impressive, too! We were confident that the two would be an excellent match. Best Bernie Nov 2016A-118
For those reading this update, you might not realize that Bernie is a Gray Longhair. Yes, she is the mother of Dasher. We love this photo for the silly look on her face–she smiles.

  1. OMG! Dasher is beautiful!

    • Thank you, Linda! We so appreciate your comment and the fact that you take the time and effort to post here. We are indeed happy with the outcome of the mating between Bernie and Boone. Bernie is four generations out from our beloved Deli–on the maternal side: Deli, Moxie, and Millee. On the Paternal side: Zeke, Benton, and Stackhouse. Keep in mind that Benton was out of Dusty. With all of our prime lineages covered we mated Bernie to Boone. So, this is the outcome we have been working toward for about twenty years. Maybe you can see how this all works and the investment on every level. It is so great when you get the outcome you are working toward. Not every plan ended quite as well. We had the four girls we saved trying to do something similar–two never produced a pup. One produced some nice pups, and the other we got a few pups from. It was not a total loss but if we had not kept them all we might have gotten nothing.
