The Stories behind the Names


GCh Palakore's Checkered Flag


My husband and son are great Formula One racing fans, so when Victor was born, his colouring looked like the flag that is waved for the winner of the race.  So he became the checkered flag  And of course the winner of the checkered flag is the "Victor" of the race.

AmCh/Can GCh Palakore's Talisman


Lucky is the result of two bloodlines that have not be combined in decades. During delivery he came out first, then his sister had to come by C-section.  So he was the "lucky" one and she was the "jinx".  Mom's call name is "Charm" - A lucky charm is a Talisman.

Ch Palakore's Perfect Alibi


Both of her parents have "perfect" in their registered names, so everyone in the litter did too.

Palakore's Perfect Timing

Palakore's Perfect Balance

Palakore's Perfect Storm and

Palakore's Perfect Alibi.  So if you have a perfect alibi, you've got a real good "Story"


Ch Palakore's One Outa Four


Ch Palakore's One Outa Four


Her mom's call name is "Four" because she was the 4th girl I had gotten from Nepachee kennels in 4 decades (one every 10 years).  When we bred "Four" she didn't look pregnant so one night in our bedroom we heard a strange noise and sure enough there was one baby.   My son came up with One Outa Four - I thought it was great.  And of course if you have one out of four (1/4)  you have a "Quarter"

Palakore's Flip The Coin


Mom is "Quarter". Dad is "Lucky"

To get lucky when you have a quarter,
you Flip The Coin
His call name happened because I figured it out when he was small.  So something smaller than a quarter is a "Nickel". 


Ch Palakore's Paperback Writer


Mom is "Story". Dad is "Boxcar Willie"(an old country singer).  So being a Beatles fan like I am -
a song about a story is Paperback Writer and another name for a paperback book is a "novel".


Ch Egbar N Palakore's Wildflower​


Her mom's call name is Meadow.  What can you find in a meadow - wild flowers.  Her dad's name is Boxcar Willie.  What did he do?  Sing.  And the song Wildflower was the wedding "song" for her breeder Evette Clarke.  So that's how her name happened.


Ch Palakore's Amulet​


She came from a repeat breeding that produced "Lucky" - GCh Palakore's Talisman, so I wanted something to connect with his name.  The mom's call name is "Charm".  A synonym for Charm and Talisman is Amulet, which a small piece of jewellry or "trinket" that protects you from evil.

Egbar N Palakore Mr Moonlight​


His dad is GCh Palakore's Let It Be Doxieluv. (Ringo)          Let It Be is a Beatle song.  His mom is Palakore's Egbar Moonwalk.  Mr Moonlight is another Beatle song.

Palakore's Royal Fairy Tale


Her dad came from Russia and his call name is Czar, which means he is a Ruler so she is royal.  Her mom's call name is Story so she is a fairy tale.

Because she is royal her call name is "Majesty"

Palakore's Lady In Waiting


Her dad came from Russia and his call name is Czar, which means he is a Ruler so she is part of a royal family.  Her mom's call name is Story so she is a the story Lady In Waiting.

Because she is royal lady in waiting - that makes her a "Princess", waiting to be a Queen.
