Exxon got his name from a combination of events. Over the course of
a year planning this breeding, we drove a few hundred miles back and
forth to meet Spencer Thew at a gas station in Vermont. When Falcon
produced two surviving puppies, Exxon and Mobil seemed appropriate
nicknames; and Exxon stuck. His registered name will be Call of the
Wild's Masters Regalia, since he was born the weekend Rhonda was to
receive recognition for completing her MBA.|
Exxon is a puppy still at heart. He just loves to
entise Saint and the other dogs into play. For
over a year, Exxon refused to use his dog house.
Then, after an early 2005 winter trip to our
friend's camp, he came home and immedately started
using the dog house. I think that one particular
weekend, sleeping on the drop chain made him realize
what he was missing! Exxon is rather an oddball
in our kennel from a phenotypical standpoint. Of
the 4 other Falcon offspring in our kennel, Saint is
the only one he pairs up with in terms of gait and
height. While the other team dogs are loping at
12+ miles an hour, Exxon is still trotting. Exxon has only run in lead a few
times. Funny however, that he learned "line out"!
A musher in Vermont was looking for some new blood to
bring into his breeding program as well as a dog who
would fit in phenotypically with his current team.
Exxon seemed to fit the bill.
