Foxfair Exclusively Yours


Foxfair Exclusively Yours
Best In Sweepstakes
Buckeye Keeshond Club

Here is a picture of Foxfair Exclusively Yours, "Jill", winning Best in Sweepstakes at the 2006 Buckeye Keeshond Club. She is sired by Am. Can. Ch. Foxfair Excalibur x Ch. Foxfair Valentina. Since the first breeding of these two produced only two puppies we have repeated this breeding and are looking forward to puppies in mid March, both parents are PHPT negative and health tested clear.

"Jill" will be back in the show ring this spring with her co-owner and co-breeder Jeannie Buente. "Jill" is truly her fathers daughter in both looks, movement and temperament. She is fun to show and her movement is wonderful. Look for Jeannie and Jill, they will be moving along very fast.

Which is which? Most of the Time I Can't Tell Them Apart

Jeannie can tell them apart and I can too when I really concentrate. As I was not doing apparently when I took these pictures. At any rate here they are in all their splendor. Two of the nicest male puppies I have seen in a long time. The table pictures are not the best as this is the first time they were on a table. It is better to see them on the ground outside where they really have their feet under them.

Catalog Shopping For Your Dog

Cherie Lovett and Family

CATALOG AND ON LINE SHOPPING
FOR YOUR DOG? TRY IT

Debbie Lynch

Yes, you can go to the big box store and look for the perfect sweater for your dog. But for real variety in color, size and style try on line or catalog shopping for your pet. On line stores carry toys, treats, grooming supplies, dryers, cages, sweaters, shampoo, leashes, collars, and every type of dog bowl and training aid you can imagine. They even have some items that you can’t imagine. Most on line suppliers will also mail you a catalog so you can get a clearer picture of the item. Shipping is usually fast and reasonable.

Some suppliers specialize in certain items. Also, if you have more than one dog or are planning a litter of puppies discounts are common for orders of multiple items. Multiple item discounts are generally not available at the retail stores, so this method of shopping is ideal for the multiple dog household.

Those who answer the phones at on line pet suppliers are often unusually knowledgeable about their goods and can answer a wide variety of questions. Here are some places to try for high quality items and good prices.

www.dogs.com – Will send a catalog, they also have some of the best prices for everyday
items, and are one of the easiest to shop on-line.

www.DrsFosterandSmith – The source features and internet pharmacy for your pets, they carry a great collection of dog beds, including special beds for your older dog, they will supply a catalog and also have a line of veterinary products and medications for all pets.

www.PetsEdge.com - Will supply a catalog, excellent source of discount toys in volume for breeders and those with multiple pets, great source for grooming items, high quality scissors, brushes and shampoos for your pet. They also have fun items including pet costumes and unusual toys.

If you order your catalogs you should receive them in the mail in a few weeks and be ready to shop for your pets in the New Year!

The DAP Diffuser for Calming Your Dog

Calming Your Dog With Pheromones?

Debbie Lynch

Recently a friend of mine had a female with a new litter of puppies. The mother had increased protectiveness and sensitivity to her environment, along with stress related digestive problems. Among the things her veterinarian recommended was a DAP diffuser. Huh? A what? We asked. Well, it turns out that DAP stands for “dog appeasing pheromones” and the diffuser is just the gadget that disperses them into the air. Pheromones are the hormone that mother dogs emit when they have puppies. The pheromones have the ability to calm puppies and make them feel safe.

Researchers have discovered that dogs have the ability to respond to these calming pheromones throughout their life. Thus, the DAP diffuser, which looks like an air freshener plug in, sends the calming pheromones into the air. Units can be purchased for anywhere from $20.00 to $30.00 in major pet stores and is manufactured by the Farnam Company. One diffuser covers 650 square feet and last about 30 days.

The diffuser, however, is only one way to deliver the pheromones to your dog, It is also available in a collar and a spray which you can spray on a bandana and place on your dog. The literature on this product says it will significantly reduce barking, improve housebreaking and calm dogs during stressful events like thunderstorms. Those we have spoken with that tried it think it works for their dogs. Now, if we could only get one of these devices for people. Think of it, no more test anxiety, worrying about your weight and what about those taxes!

New Champion StarKees To The Puple Born


NEW CHAMPION
CH. STAR*KEES TO THE PURPLE BORN
"Murasaki"

Am. Can. Ch. Foxfair Excalibur x Ch. Star*Kees Picalili

I must say he got his name honestly, this was the puppy that strutted around at Bernard's house thinking quite a lot of himself. He is one of those rare puppies that is a wonderful combination of his sire and dam. Born in an outstanding litter, he had to go some to distinquish himself. Which he did. Finishing his championship with 4 - 4 point majors. Hmm. The icing on this very handsome cake is that Robin says he loves to show, it just gets him going to think about the dog show. I am not surprised, since he seemed to "really like the camera" from a very young age.
His unusual call name comes from his breeder, Bernard, who is a scholar of eastern languages, it seems that Murasaki means purple in Mandarin.
Everyone at Foxfair sends their congratulations to Bernard Halliwell and Murasaki's dam the gorgeous Arabella on their first homebred champion and to Robin Stark and Jimmy Kranz on a beautiful job of raising and showing this very promising young dog. Andy is, of course, very proud of his 4th champion and second champion son.
