Kaleidoscope Red Dragon
Owned and Loved by Terry Farnping and Tom Springford
Caboose grew up a singleton, and after having the experience of raising one lone pup, I total understand when Kate says that, if she could special-order what she wants, she would have a singleton every time. Raising a singleton is just like raising a puppy you buy at 8 weeks of age; they get all the individual attention, they hang out in parts of the house where it is impractical to allow an entire litter to run amok, they start potty-training well ahead of their be-siblinged peers, etc. As a result, they are almost invariably the Best Dogs Ever.
Based on personality and smarts alone, I would love to have kept this little red dragon for my own. However, it was clear to me early on that he was not a show prospect; and even if he had been, I do NOT need another boy.
As always seems to happen with my puppies, though, Caboose went just where he belonged. Terry is looking forward to obedience and search-and-rescue with Caboose, and I think he is going to make her an AWESOME partner.
