Dragongardens Calypso de Cacique (Imp. Swd)
"Calyph"

Date of Birth: 21st February 2008




Calyph arrived here in Melbourne in early June 2008 and after spending a month in quarantine joined Konig, Tamsin, Hope, Mimi and now Scarlett at home.

He has come from Petra Junehall's Dragongardens Kennels in Sweden and we are so grateful to her for sending this lovely boy to us from her de Cacique litter. He has settled in well and gets along with his harem of girls!

This picture of Calyph was taken in our yard in early February this year, just a couple of weeks shy of his 6th birthday.




These are some of my favourite photos of Calyph as a young pup. At 11 weeks, Calyph is pictured with his dad Shiku; standing in one of the exercise yards in quarantine; and relaxed in the kitchen on first day home.




Calyph's show career was short lived for a number of reasons. In 2008 he was awarded Baby Puppy in Show at the Rare Breeds Championship Show in July and also won Puppy of Breed at the Royal Melbourne Show.
The 2 photoa on the left show him stacked in the ring and with his sash, held by the judge, and other prizes awarded on the day. The photo on the right shows Calyph stacked in the ring at the Royal Melbourne show.




8 month old Calyph is pictured lying and sitting on our decking; and in the yard for Christmas photos in late December 2008.





Photos from 2009 show a lovely head shot taken in January; in August with his and Mimi's puppies, whom he adored; and in October making himself comfortable on the couch; and standing in our front yard .





In 2010, Calyph is seen snoozing by the couch; standing on our decking; and pictured sitting in our yard and with Tamsin in December.





In 2011, Calyph is pictured relaxing on the cool tiles in February; in late August he is on the decking with Hope and Mimi and also dropped on there; and saying hello to Jo, whom he adores, in November.





These photos were taken in 2012. Calyph is pictured with some of the fur from his summer moult in early February and relaxed on our lounge room in June.
We had a visit from Petra Junehall, Calyph and Tamsin's breeder, in September who took a group shot of Calyph and ourselves with Tamsin, Hope, Mimi and Scarlett and also this lovely head shot of him.





These photos were taken in 2013.In January, Calyph and Scarlett are playing the possession game with a soft toy; Calyph decided my bed was a good place to nap in April;
He is relaxed on the decking in May; and pictured with Scarlett,Tamsin, Mimi and Hope and in December.





Calyph became a dad to 8 puppies on the 26th June 2009, to one pup on the 26th February 2013 and 6 pups on the 24th March2014 .
