SUNFLOWER SEEDS OF THE PAST!
Pictured above is "Twin" and "Spike" - born January 30, 1982 "Twin" CH. Sunflower's That's Just Twin OFA H/E was our first "showdog" of our breeding. She finished her championship quickly with several group placements. "Twin" was just that, a twin at birth, two puppies in one sack, she weighed in at 7oz and had no trouble nursing, she just tucked herself under her moms' armpit and was kept warm and fed at the same time. Her male twin, weighing 8oz and born with a severe tail deformity died two days after birth despite all efforts to safe him. "Twin" never came in season and at 3 years of age was placed with the "love of her life", a man that to this day still sheds a tear remembering his "Twinner". "Twin" was killed in a logging accident at almost 8 years of age. "Spike" Sunflower's Hunter of Fireweed CD was a GSD that everyone loved, he was given to the guy in the picture with him, who has bred, shown and loved the breed since, his name is "Doc" Coulas, Fireweed Kennels, Terrace, BC Sire - Lady Erin's Cu Cuchlan Dam - Ch.
