Jak and China are litter-brothers from the breeding of
Am/Can Ch. Auroral's Raven x Ch. Reggae's Chenin
  (DOB:  1/22/98)

That litter produced four puppies:
Reggae's Red Roulette v. Auroral
(f), Reggae's Keno (f),
Reggae's Blackjack
(m) and Reggae's Baccarat (m)

kenocandle.gif (6706 bytes)

We adopted China (Reggae's Baccarat) in July of
1998. We were so enchanted with China (his whimsical
personality, and
exceptional loving and gentle temperament)
that I yearned for another wonderful Borzoi puppy.
But, could we be so lucky as to find another sweet and
wonderful puppy?

. . . . in November 1998 (almost 5 months after we
adopted China), we adopted Jak (Reggae's Blackjack)
and have certainly been blessed twice with two
incredible boys who we love and cherish very much!

Thank you Reggae Hounds and Auroral Borzoi & Papillons,
for your joint efforts in bringing this litter of pups
into the world, as our lives have truly been enriched by them

China  (Reggae's Baccarat), CGC
Canine Good Citizen, Awarded April 30, 2000

a/k/a Cha-Cha and the Red Rider

China is a very sweet, loving and whimsical puppy.  He is the more spirited and gamey of the two brothers and can most often and likely be found getting into "things", with Jak being the on-looker.  When he and Jak run in their yard together, China would rather be the chaser than the chasee.  China loves people, especially children and/or toddlers.

Jak  (Reggae's Blackjak)CGC
Canine Good Citizen, Awarded April 30, 2000

a/k/a Jak-a-Bee, Bee-Ah, Tickle-Bee, Tickle-Me-Elmo Dog.

Jak is a very sweet, friendly, mellow and very much the laid-back ("marshmallow") puppy.  Jak would rather stand by your side in the yard, than run with his brother China.  Jak loves to meet new people.
