Marta's second (and last) litter was by the Swedish import Hound's Kashmir who was out of venerable old hunting lines. Four males and three females were born in June of 2004. It was my O litter and I was working on coming up with O names. These were days before my photography went digital, so I had to wait to see photos. When I got this batch, I studied one particular photo of the four males together. The expression of one pup caught my eye. I said, hmmm, he looks like a wise little owl. Which is true to this day. I'm pretty sure you will know which one I am talking about.
Please know while we're at it though, that this photo is just one molecule of a moment in time and is absolutely not a reflection of the intelligence or future abilities of any of these puppies. Oslo is a TOP field trial competitor, Otter a field trial Absolute Winner, and Odin a TOPNOTCH deer tracking dog! It is today's throwback Thursday pic only for me to show and tell How Owl Got His Name. : ) - Patt Nance
