Producing Record of Dinah of Sedgemoor

1. Bogota Lolita(tri b, by Merriott Mackerel of Bogota)

Dinah of Sedgemoor was the maternal granddam of Indigo of Pocono, the great graddam of both Am/Can Ch Nashcrest Golden Note ROM and Ch Shelt-E-Ain Reflection o'Knight ROM. This led to some interesting problems when Mary van Wagenen began to trace Note's family line, as Dinah traces tail female to an unregistered Fanny who had puppies (including Isleburgh Pansy) in 1925. Fanny seems to have been one of the commonest names for Sheltie bitches at the time, and there are no fewer than three Families headed by unregistered bitches named Fanny. Families 21 and 23 were very short-lived, so our Fanny was shoehorned into Family 3, assumed to be the same Fanny who was a grandmother of a litter whelped in 1916! I suppose it's possible, but it seems extremely unlikely. As a compromise, I refer to the branch of Family 3 coming through Chestnut Lassie as Family 3, to that coming through Lassie's alleged full sister, the Collie Chestnut Sweet Lady, as Family 3C, and the branch coming through Isleburgh Pansy as Family 3B.
