"IN MEMORY OF CAL-ORE'S ELUSIVE DREAM"
March 21, 1977 - October 1, 1983
The Heart hath it's own Memory...
And in it are enshrined
The Precious keepsakes...
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Jenny, our beautiful Black and Tan, Granddaughter of Ch. Rinky Dink's Sir
Lancelot, was our "Dream" girl.
Jenny was the Dam of our first Champion Black and Tan bitch, Ch. Cal-Ore's
Mystic Time, one of Lancelot's 135 Champion offspring.
Jenny, with the constant wagging merry tail, was nick named, "Our Little
Morse Code Girl!" When she was in the Vari Kennel crate you could hear her
tail thump, thump, thumping what sounded like a Morse Code message! We'd say,
"Jenny are you sending us a message?" Her tail would go even faster!
Jenny was a joy to own, no, let me rephrase this, she Owned our Hearts.
Jenny had a silly little habit of chasing and pouncing on Thistle Fuzzy's!
She would run from one end of the pea gravel exercise yard to the other after
the fuzzy's, even skidding in the gravel, as she turned, when the wind would
blow the fuzzy the other direction!
Jenny had another silly, but annoying habit. She would jump up onto the side
barn, the exercise yard was connected to the back of the metal sided barn,
trying to get Flies, Lady Bugs, Tansy Moths, Butterfly's, and YES, EVEN
BEE'S!!! We could hear her from the house, about 200 or more feet away,
KA-Booming into it!!!
My girls would say, "Oop's, Mom, there goes Jenny chasing Bugs again!"
Our hearts were broken when on October 1, 1983, our beautiful girl's heart
and tail was silenced forever. Jenny's death was and still is very hard for
my girls and I to talk about to this day, 17 years later, I still feel that
her death was my fault. Of course our Veterinarian and my own personal Doctor
has said that I should not feel guilty for her death, as I too was on the
verge of deaths door from the horrible Silent Killer--CARBON MONOXIDE.
