Pearl aka Dailuaine Diamonds ‘n’ Pearls is Layla’s sister. Pearl and Layla are just like sisters can be – genetically sisters, yet very different! Pearl raised her hand at least 5x when God distributed the genes for “coat”. In full coat she looks  fat, but put on the scale, she weighs less than Layla!
In the show ring she has proven herself – as a brood bitch … she’s still trying!

When I decided that I would like to have a litter out of Pearl, it was a terribly long wait for her season. Her hormones were like a rollercoaster ride – up and down and around. One day we thought – yep, its getting close to ovulation day and then it was – oops, not yet. In the end she was mated and produced lovely puppies. The second go was a flop – she didn’t take.

I gave her a third and last chance and she took it. However, it was a special adventure and some sort of a curiosity as well. Pearl decided to rush the season – in the truest sense of the word. She came in season a lot earlier than expected and scheduled. I couldn’t get vacation that fast, so I had to give the marching orders to my „I-don’t-want- to do- this- alone-cowared“- husband. And a long march was it too, because I picked Shardanell Casterspell as Pearl’s lover to be, who lived in Wales – 1000 miles away. So, my newly appointed mating-supervisor set out for Wales, bravely ignoring that his right hand was still a bit immobile, because he had broken his wrist a couple of weeks before. On his long trip, somewhere near Bristol he had to wish himself all the best for his birthday, Pearl was fat asleep.

The mating itself was as special as strange. Pearl had to wait in a tiny and narrow corridor, a door behind her opened and her lover boy entered the corrodor and Pearl. I’m sure Pearl never saw her lover, she only felt something of him inside. That was how the P-Litter was started. By the way, my lord and master recuparated from the trip and the mating, after a while.

Pearl is a truly active dog that loves to be outdoors! One of her lesser nice traits is her desire to dig a tunnel through Mother Earth and hopefully end up in Korea – or Australia? She smells water even if it is miles away and then there is no stopping! Retrieving is her favourite game! She will not give up and search until she finds it! She is full of life and yet a love dove like her sister Layla! She has so much to offer – I wish she would have decided to pass it on more often!

Pearl left us far too soon at the age of ten. As you commonly say after a short but severe illness. She had a pyometra, got operated, but her kidneys didn’t function well afterwards. The only thing we still could do for her was bringing her home to die among all the ones she loved and who loved her.
