DaDane of DaWeek

This sweet harlequin boy attended the 1999 GDCA National Specialty. It was the very first show for 6-month-old Archie, and he won the 6-9 month harlequin puppy class! Archie comes from Almostafarm Harlequins. His registered name is "Almosta Architect."

I jokingly refer to him as "Almost a Pupsickle" because he is the product of Almostafarm's first frozen sperm breeding. His breeders, Pam and Tim Sain, had this to say:

"This was our very first frozen sperm breeding and Archie was the only puppy. So we were especially thrilled to get a show-marked baby boy. Archie is out of our mantle bitch 'Rosa' (Almosta Country Del Pur Sang, born in Argentina) and Jean Chase's champion 'AJ' (BISS Ch. BMW Architect of Jericho.) Archie met his Dad for the first time this year at the Nationals, along with human Grandma Jean."

Like most harles, Archie is a clown. He loves to bounce and he's never met a stranger. Archie lives on a farm in pastoral north Georgia with five other harles and his mantle mother. If you'd like to see more of Archie and meet his relatives, be sure to visit
