The Growing Crow

Taken on July 4th, 1998, during a rest in the middle of a wild play session with Field Spaniel buddy, Nokomis, the puppy Crow is beginning to allow glimpses of the adult-to-be. She reminds me stunningly of her brother, Panda, as well as her mother, Otter, but there's also something unique there that is - well - it's just pure Crow.

It's always worth checking the sky for fellow crows. Crow wasn't striking a pose here. She truly was watching some crows fly by.

Two Peas in a Pod

Crow is to to the left. To the right is Crow's sister, Hawks Hunt's Lily Lake (Lily.) Consistency in type is one of every breeder's goals. I had to look twice at this picture of Lily when I saw it. It could be a picture of Crow. Nice work, Otter! You, too, Suzanne.

Time for a rest. Boy, that Nokomis can sure keep going and going and going, can't she? We have made a bid on Noko, offering to lease her as a Crow toy for the next 18 months or so. We were turned down, so the play dates will have to continue instead. Crow slept all day July 5th, so now we know it takes 5 solid hours of running and running and wrestling and running to wear her down.

As the Crow Grows

Sorry this is so dark, but you get the idea of what kind of fun Crow and I had picking pumpkins on a beautiful October day. Crow was 7 months old when this picture was taken. I was... older than that.

Crow and her daddy out walking the corn field. This is absolutely Crow's favorite pastime, running after her tennis ball in the field, and chasing Canada geese, and walking for miles, hoping to roll in dead deer or deer deposits ... yummmmmmm.

A tired Crow, sitting askew, happy for a fence to lean against. This is our favorite version of Crow ... tired, leaning, and ready for a nap!

Sorry these shots are so dark. Next time, we'll take the SLR out with us and leave the APS home! At least you can see something of Crow the Magnificent!
