Robin and Murasaki Gliding Along in Houston
Every year there is a Keeshond specialty in Houston, Texas. This year Robin Stark, who has been breeding beautiful Keeshonds even long than myself, (we both started as children), decided to take her new hopeful - 18 month old Star Kees to the Purple Born, better known as Mr. Murasaki. Mr. Murasaki is a son of the very wonderful, Ch. Star Kees Pick Lilli and Am. Can. Ch. Foxfair Excalibur, BISS.
Now, you might ask where did he get his name. Hmmm, Robin has a penchant for unusual names and this happens to be one of her tamer ones. However, his mother is owned by his co-breeder, Bernard Halliwell, and Bernard is fluent in many languages including, Japanese. Murasaki means purple in Japanese - thus, Mr. Murasaki.
Robin and he warmed up by winning RWD the first two days of the four day circuit. However, they finished strong by going WD on Saturday and Sunday and then to top it all off - they won Best Bred By Exhibitor in the Non Sporting Group. Robin says he is out of coat and she spent a lot of time trying to make 4 hairs into 40,000 - but very well done indeed!
Robin Stark, Jimmy Kranz and Mr. Mursaki share their home in Gilroy, California with other Keeshonds, a number of operatic tropical birds and a precious domestic porcine occupant - who honestly does not smell like one.
