Ch. Faerdorn Dust Buster, CGC (Imp UK) x Shaeward's Jolly Holiday at Newcastle
It was a sound Harry recognized...phoenix song. It was the sound of hope to Harry...the most beautiful and welcome thing he had ever heard in his life.... He felt as if the song were inside him instead of just around him.

Gloria was the last-born puppy in Emma's first litter. Affectionately known as "Glorious Gloria", this lovely puppy is co-owned by Emma's breeder, Alisha Mobley of Shaeward Boxers. Gloria spent a year and a half growing up with Alisha before coming back here to us, and now she delights us daily with her no-holds-barred enthusiasm and incredible sweetness. We are still evaluating Gloria, as even at two years old she has a lot of maturing to do, before we decide whether she will be a part of our breeding program in addition to our beloved companion. One thing's for certain, this girl will keep us on our toes!
Gloria's call name comes from her entry into this world; she had a difficult start but she was a fighter, determined to survive - so we named her after Gloria Gaynor, who sang I Will Survive. Her registered name ties in her call name with the Harry Potter litter theme; a "gloria" is a type of song, phoenix song represents hope to Harry - and we have a lot of high hopes for her!
