pedigree and clearances
Chime is Abbi's daughter from the Music litter born April 28, 2005. She was busy going to agility classes, doing obedience, field work, and hunting with Tom. She's a sweet and quiet little girl, much different than her mother. She reminds us so much of Piper.
Chime is the reason we have the Music Litter theme. I love wind chimes and when Kathy from Florida was getting a Gaylan's pup from the summer litters of 2004, she was thinking she might be getting a female pup. She had picked out the name Chime. When she found out she was getting a male pup, who is now cute Slider, she was gracious enough to let me have the name Chime for my future Gaylan's pup. So the Music Litter theme was developed.
Chime was injured in March 2007, when she slipped in the snow, tearing her groin muscle and sliding her into a sharp broken branch on a tree. The tree branch went into her abdomen and 3+ hours of surgery miraculously saved her life. She healed up nicely from the surgery, but she was out of commission for quite a while due to the pulled/torn groin muscle. She still has some residual effects from the torn groin muscle and so has had a little trouble with her weave poles.
She then had some complications from the injury & surgery from scar tissue pinching off her ureter, damaging her left kidney. She had surgery to remove the damaged kidney and she is doing great. We are so thankful she was able to become a mommy and look forward to following her pups in the future.
Chime whelped two litters, in 2011 and 2012, The Gemstone Litter and the Outer Space Litter.
We expect nice birdy puppies with great structure, great biddability, and wonderful temperaments. See our Puppies pages for further information.
