This amazing pedigree for female chow Knif-Li was sent to the Chow Chow Club Inc. in 2016 (then mailed to me by Linda Albert) with the attached letter below. Also in the package was a stud card for one of America’s top stud dogs in the package. This is an incredible treasure, which from the sound of the note could have just as easily ended up in the trash. The “rescue” of these rare and brittle artifacts is what keeps me going as an archivist. To most people they mean nothing…..to our Chow breed and my mission as curator to ChowTales…..they are priceless!

My imagination runs wild I’m sure, but I can’t help think that the handsome Ch. Steed’s Ching Foo may have been considered a possible suitor for M’lady “Knif-Li” , from the pedigree above…..afterall, they were found in the same desk drawer and both hail from Missouri!!! A sign of true love!!! Looking at Ching Foo’s pedigree I am wishing this boy were around today to add to a breeding program. Mumsie and Foxie are 2 of the top dams in breed history with Ch. Chee Kee and Sum Sultan, Winsum MinT’Sing and the El Cher dogs , all being the best of the best representatives of the breed in the 1920’s.
