THIS LITTER'S THEME

Our theme for this litter is The Stars & The Heavens.

We dedicate this litter to the memory of two very special Shilohs that recently left us:
Apollo (2000-2011) and Stacia (2003-2011).
Apollo (the litter's great-grandsire) was one of the greatest Shilohs that ever lived.
Lovely Stacia (a Sunnie/Apollo daughter, also Vanna's dam and the litter's granddam)
would have celebrated her 8th birthday on the day the puppies arrived.

   



Zeke is Aramaic for "Shooting Star."

 



Celeste is French for "Heavenly."

 



Gemini is one of the constellations of the Zodiac.
Apollo was bred/owned by Gemini Shilohs.

 



Castor is a star in the constellation Gemini.

 



Starla is an English name meaning "Star."  We like the fact that Starla
is only two letters different than Stacia... who was also a Miss Pink.

 



Rigel is the sixth brightest star in the sky.
* Rigel was our sixth-born puppy. *

 



Polaris is the North Star.

 



Hoshi is Japanese for "Star."



 

   
To be a star you must shine your own light,
follow your own path and not be afraid of the darkness,
for that is when stars shine brightest.
