Ice's Litter - 2002

(Shojin's Somewhere in Time x Trial By Fire o' Amethyst, CGC)

On Monday, April 15, 2002 our Trial by Fire o' Amethyst, CGC (Ice) whelped a litter of 2 boys and 3 girls for us.  The sire is our own Shojin's Somewhere in Time.  This litter boasts a pedigree packed full of Gordon Setters that we know will prove to be good temperamented dogs, good bird dogs, obedience dogs, bench dogs and all-around good couch potatoes!!
