CH Telltail Baewyn One Too Many
DOB 09/15/2011 Bred by: Paula O'Donnell, Norma Murphy & Georgene Dovolis
The newest member of the Kaleidoscope pack, Whiskey arrived on Dec. 14, 2011 (yes, another December puppy) after a flight from Orlando to Logan airport in Boston. Unphased by either the flight or by being picked up by a stranger and driven for another three hours, she walked into the house, procured one of the marrow bones lying around, and curled up in Nathan’s lap to enjoy it. With her pedigree and Paula’s mentoring, I have high hopes that Whiskey will provide a solid foundation for Kaleidoscope to build on. Out of three shows in the 6-9 month class, she came away with two major Reserves out of some nice entries.
I saw a lot of change between 6 months and 9 months, and apparently the judges did too, because at 9 months, she went WB in 4 out of 5 shows, picking up 3 majors and a total of 11 points. Not one to let any moss grow on her, Whiskey then went out at 11 months and, in three shows, went WB the first two and BOB over the Specials the third to finish her championship!
In updating her show record, I realized that she was only shown a total of 11 times — all in the puppy classes — and of those shows she either won or was Reserve at all but two of them.
Whiskey is taking a little break from the show ring to take on motherhood duties. After that litter, she’ll go back out and work on her Grand Championship.
UPDATE April 2019: Whiskey let me know that she really needed a home where she could be the only (or almost only) dog. An absolutely wonderful couple appeared at the right time, and Whiskey has since retired to their house, where she has all the humans very well-trained and keeps the trains running right on time.
