Griffith Land & Cattle Co.

Nemesis-Pixie R.I.P.

Sire: Griffith's BamBam.  Dam: Griffith's Pebbles.
DOB: 27 Sept. 2011.  DOD: 30 Aug 2019
(Our very "span-able" little Gremlin.)

Another offspring of Pebbles x BamBam, Pixie met many challenges beginning at birth.
From that day to this she was the smallest pup in the litter and had a tough way to go for everything.
She had an almost dainty appearance and we wondered how she'd turn out.
Well, she was only dainty if you count the fact she's smaller than any of this family.
Her lower legs showed healthy bone and muscle for such a small dog. She's not much over 10 lbs.

Squirrels, prowling cats and even "tweety-birds" frequently get her pretty stirred up too
and she holds a special kind of hatred for butterflies, a trait that was very strong in her mother, Pebbles.
Any small living thing within view got her pretty stirred up, (as with any well bred Patterdale.)

She only produced a few dogs for us and they all seemed to became more fierce as they matured.
Being on the small side, Pixie could get into wherever most vermin could go.
We lost an important part of our breeding program when we lost Pixie.

The light and angle in some of these photos make it hard to see that Pixie is Black-Brindle in color
just like her half-brother >>>
Bosco.<<< Both are pretty small dogs and easily get into the ground when they want to.

Pixie was a full sister to Shillelagh's >>> Pinga <<< but from a different litter.
Check out the >>>
Colors & Markings <<< page,
then click on Pinga's page to see what's in the breeding of this family of dogs.
Here are a couple of recent photos of this little whirl-wind
Here's a couple views on 30 Jan. 2014 when she weighed in at 12-lbs.
She's a squirmy little thing and feeding time is best for photos!

Size reference: In the photo above, Pixie's feet are on a 2x4 board.

Here she is held in my arms. I'm a fairly big fellow but Look at her compared to my hand!
She can get into anywhere my hands can !!

It's hard to believe that this little thing was a full-sister to 
Pinga (from a different litter.)
Even though they look very different, it's their attitude that lets us know they're a real family!

To see the full pedigree of Pixie (and any of the Pebbles-x-BamBam dogs,)
just click here >>> Griffith's Pixie-Girl, 6-gen peds.pdf  to open a 6-gen pedigree.

By now most folks know she whelped a litter during "the Blizzard of 2016," sired by a young (at the time)
When word got
out to the regular crowd these pups quickly became "spoken-for!"

This is what the Jan. 2016 Pixe-x-Rooster puppies looked like.

If this bunch turns out okay we'll do it again in a little while.
 (Here is what the pedigree of those pups looks like,  >>> Pixie-x-Rooster, peds, 6-Gen...pdf  <<<)

The Girlie pup became Nemesis-Millie and here is what she looked like the last we heard of her...
 This gal looks like she became the ball of fire her pedigree indicates could be expected.
We look forward to more about her in the years to come.
