Here is my holiday crew! ~ ~ ~ Lynx is a kitten from Rowan's feral kitten challenge! He used to be called Perfume, but after some time the name didn't seem fit him too well so we went with something a little more... menacing? Wild? Now known as Lynx, this little guy has a big personality to match! He always seems like he's contemplating something and I feel like he's much more than meets the eye. If this team were to ever plan a heist, he'd totally be the brains
Next we have mister Birch! What a handsome longhaired dalmatian!! The fact that Shade got Salem's permission to release these is incredible and I applaud them both (Salem is here in spirit). Birch is always sniffing around and takes after his nature-themed name very well preferring to spend most of his time in the backyard! He's a little spunky with a little bit of wild sprinkled on top!
Felicitas is a Brylee x Miller pup! What an honor to have a piece of DG history! She's such a gorgeous lab mixie <3 I can't get over her scottie ears too, that is such a weakness for me on pretty much all mixed breeds. She is so charismatic and definitely has her father's charm (and I still can't believe she was in an all girl litter of 10 pups xD)!
That leads me to my other lab mixie, Mint! She reminded me a lot of Amy's old lab, Austin from wayyyy way back in the day! However, he was a purebred lab while Mint is very much a mix haha But still, I love the dusty coat color and those eyes <3 It's not until you look into her family tree though that you are really treated for even more DG nostalgia as Mint is the grandchild of Mai x Chedey! I miss those guys so much, but their legacy lives on in all their descendants! Mint surely will have to live up to the family name!
Dusk is a non-inbred, 6th generation, hex free purebred Great Dane and when I tell y'all I was head over heels for this litter I mean it! This lady has such a mysterious tone about her, it must be all that darkness Thus, her new found name came about if you couldn't guess! She'll be showing at the PKC now that she's old enough & I cannot wait to see how much she accomplishes! The plan is to breed her to Will one day. (I'll link to him soon)
Kona, my heart <3 I loved Bunni's story about her first hexes, the Cremelo Danes, and honestly, there's just something about old school hexed petz that I can't explain?! Whether it be the simplicity of them or the stories behind their creation, I'm not sure, but what I am sure about is that when I first saw these guys on her website I was in love! Not only are they danes, but SHORTIE DANES. My favorite things T_T Any who, the litter that was available at the time came and went so so fast and of course I was a little bummed that I couldn't snag one in time. Little did I know, Bunni would have a litter for the DG Advent!! AHH I LOVE KONA <3
Judy is a hexed corgi and my gosh, petzy hexed corgi's should be all the rage?? They are ADROABLE <3 Pinto did a fabulous job on those textures *chefs kiss* magnifique! Her eyes are what definitely stood out to me and really complimented her coat in my opinion. She is named after a character in The Santa Claus which is such a good nostalgia trip!
Last but certainly not least, Alaska the arctic fox! My gosh all mighty... these are incredible. Need I say more?? I will, but honestly the details on these <3 I was even more surprised to learn that when Alaska arrived, she meowed At the time, it didn't actually seem like a "meow" and I think that's because my excitement was through the roof LOL I only say that because my immediate reaction was "PEACHPUP INCLUDED FOX SOUNDS?!" only to come to realize nope, that's just the default oshie sound HA I had a good laugh about that, but it's something I'll remember with her! Alaska truly is a scaredy fox, but I don't blame her around these petz; kidding She has come out of her shell some since Christmas and has even entered a show over at RKC!
I am throwing Jangle on this list as she technically was not from the DG AC, but from the BFK one and she needs some love too haha Another purebred dane <3 My heart <3 She's also going to be a PKC contender with Dusk! As of now, they seem to get along but wait 'til they find out they're competing against one another Jangle is seriously such a gorgeous girl and I can't get enough of those little freckles around her legs, paws and chest <3 She is a bit more willing at doing things than Dusk is I will say that! She just overall has a bubbly demeanor and it's so nice to relax with her out.
I just want to thank every single one of you for making Christmas at Duke's Group such a wonderful time of year, especially at the end of 2020 <3
