Cinnamon November 2008
Cinnamon May 1999
Granny CiCi or Cinnamon
Cinnamon was the mother of Bossier and adopted mother of Bonnie. Cinnamon was purchased from Cheryl Channey of Quitman in 1999 to breed with Rhett. They produced 5 Litters from 2001 to 2004. In October 2004 Cinnamon had her last and final litter by Rhett. Rhett had passed away a month before the puppies were born and we decided to return to Golden, Texas and The Ra-Ro Ranch owned by Ray and Rose Ferguson to purchase a new female to breed to Rhett and Cinnamon's son Bossier from their 2002 second litter. The Ferguson's had a litter only two days prior to ours. The Sire of that litter was Ferguson's Bush Cheney from the same Blood Line as Rhett and the Dame was Ferguson's Sadie Hawkins Girl. So Bonnie was chosen and at 4 weeks old the Ferguson's allowed us to bring her home. I placed her in with Cinnamon and her litter of Pups. Bonnie was twice the size of Cinnamon's pups and I was not 100% sure that Cinnamon would accept her as her own but I figured if she'd raise a kitten as her own then... well Whiskers is a different story. Well Cinnamon did accept her and they remained Mother and Daughter right to the end. Granny CiCi died on Wednesday November 25th, 2009 just 10 days before Bonnie and Bossier's 7th Litter. You could look at Bonnie and tell that she knew what had happened and for days she laid around just sad looking. Like Rhett, Cinnamon will be missed greatly and without her and Rhett, BDH Aussies would not exist today. Their Blood Line and Traits are very apparent in the offspring of Bossier and Bonnie as the BDH Aussie Line continues.

Cinnamon and Her Puppies
This is Cinnamon's 5th and Last Litter Born: 24 Oct 2004
More Pic's of Cinnamon's 5th Litter
This is Patch a Blue Merle Male from Cinnamon's 5th Litter
The puppy on top Nelly/Jewell is from Cinnamon's 4th Litter and the puppy on the bottom Sugar/Socks is Cinnamon's granddaughter from Bonnie's 1st Litter. These are two very remarkable and similar off spring from our Blood Line. The traits of Rhett and Cinnamon's puppies are past down to Bossier and Bonnie's puppies. We have had several puppies from different litters with the same markings and characteristics. Jewell looks very much like her mother Cinnamon as a mature dog. There is a picture of Socks shown above on the site when she is about 8 months old.
