Kronos and his family were brought in as strays to the Pinal County Animal Care and Control Shelter November 2nd, 2012. They were pulled by Arizona Cattle Dog Rescue and fostered in Marana Valley, AZ.
In rescue his name was Pimne. It is of Native American origin, and it means “Weasel” in Navajo.
I was looking to add a Blue Boy to my family, and when I saw this litter, I was hoping it would be one of them. I immediately asked if I could foster a pup so I could see if he would mesh with the girls and the family. After looking through all of the pup’s photos on Facebook, I asked to foster Setimika, but I distinctly remember seeing the photo above and thinking I really liked this puppy. You cannot tell in this photo that he has two different colored eyes. Little did I know that little Pimne would be the one coming home with me to stay.
When I went to photograph the pups, I was asked if I could temporarily foster another one of the pups and take him to his foster home in Flagstaff when I returned to school. I agreed, and was given “Ciqlal” to foster. However, I did not realize until months later that the puppy I had been given was not who he was said to be. Ciqlal and Pimne are pretty similar looking and were easily mixed up at their age. However, Ciqlal had two blue eyes in his baby pic, and Pimne had two different colored eyes. The tell-tale sign that defined Kronos in his puppy pictures were what I call his “Double Wings” on his chest.
Interesting for sure! But whatever he is, he’s adorable.
