Family Ties

Hello Friends

Tucker and Daisy here today. Leo is a pound kitty, so he doesn't know who his fur Mommy is, but our human Mommy tells us that she knows all about our family on the maternal side. We were born at Ox Kill Farm, in Schoharie, NY, bred by Mommy's friend Vicky McCaffrey. Mommy said she knew many of our relatives, starting with Spicy, who was Tucker's great, great, great grandmother. Then there was great great grandmother Sandy, great grandmother Satin and grandma Bug, pictured below to the right of Tucker when she was 16 years old. Buggy died a few months after this picture was taken. Tucker's mother was Bug's daughter Summer. Add one grand to each one for Daisy, who is the daughter of Tucker's sister Shamie. Our Mommy loved all the dogs when she first visited Ox Kill Farm.

Our Mommy says that Bug is the reason that she wanted to have us. When she was in graduate school, she lived at Ox Kill and she fell head over heels in love with Bug. She tried to kidnap her when she moved away, but didn't get away with it.
We still like to visit our friends and relatives at Ox Kill.
This is Daisy on the left with her half sister, Ox Kill Serendipity, known as Sera. They both have the same father, Davenport's Fourmal Attire. Just to confuse things, Sera is also Tucker's half sister, they have the same mother, Summer. Talk about confusing family relationships.
Daisy and Sera look very similar, and share a lot of characteristics. Daisy says "I am not sure I like that Sera, she acts like me, copydog, and my Mommy thinks she's cute, and I don't want to share my Mommy".
Hope you enjoyed our family album.
Tucker and Daisy
