Lord Alfred Tennyson entered this world on May 31, 1999. He was named for this English
poet due to his famous words: Tis better to
and lost, than never to have loved at all. Little Lord Alfie came
from Kim Cains Mystic Goldens in Midland, Texas. She has Marge Trowbridges Trowsnest line, which is based largely on the amazing guy, CH Trowsnest Whirlwind UD WC OS
Whirly who lived to the Golden age of 16.
Alfies mom is Gypsy, or more
formally, Mystic Winds of Fortune CD, ptd BPISS. She is the daughter of Kims once
famous guy BIS BISS CH Celestial Sirius Jake CDX JH WC VC SDHF and
CH Trowsnest Puff of Wind CD JH WC (daughter of Whirly).
Alfies dad is Romeo, or
more formally, Can CH Kyons Hot To Trot, grandson of the famous
Eng. CH Paudell Easter
Plantagenet At Kerrien.
Alfie is a sweetheart and is
doing GReat with Darcy, so wanting to follow in everything that she does. I started Alfie
with clicker training, and he is a whiz with so many commands and performing tricks. And,
he became the youngest member of the Pets on Wheels league in Howard County, Maryland.
Check out Alfies volunteer adventures at his
Pets on Wheels
Volunteer Puppy page. At merely nine weeks of
age, he had already made a very special ‘puppy’
Tricia Robson, Howard
County Pets on Wheels Coordinator, and also the breeder of our cherished girl, Darcy,
arranged this unique outing. What a fine job Alfie did that day of licking loneliness. We
have headed back as some of the residents had expressed special interest in wanting to
experience his growing-up years.
Here is one of my
favorite photos of Alfie, taken by
photographer, Stuart Haman.
Alfie was actually
sitting in our family room, staring out our screen door at the family, as we were outside
working with Darcy and getting some special photos of her doing agility. Poor Alfie was
beside himself in jealousy, as you can see. And, for a boy who is so happy that he
literally wags his tail in his sleep, it is seldom that we see that a serious expression
on his face.
