  Flisan was born on March 21, 2005, and was the only puppy in the litter. Clair de Lune is the name of a beautiful piano piece by the French composer Claude Debussy and I chose the name as a tribute to Flisan's father, Ch Cobby's French Connection.  
     
 

Flisan was shown twice in puppy class in 2005, both times at shows organized by Swedish Terrier Clubs. To our delight, she won B.O.B. puppy and ended up Best in Show both times!

  She got her first litter in April 2007, sired by GB & SE Ch Ragus Up'n'adam. Their daughter Gryphon's Cariboo Gold (Nelly) is owned by kennel Vergito's. The other two puppies, Gryphon's Claret Rock (Rocky) and AM/US Ch Gryphon's Chelsea Gem (Kylie) moved to California as puppies. Kylie got her American Champion title in January 2011; she is owned by Ashley Endy.  
     
     
       
  Flisan got her second litter in March 2012, sired by C.I.B SE & DK Ch Cobby's High Stakes. It contained one male and two bitch puppies, and they were also named after pelargoniums. We have kept Gryphon's Catherine Wheels, Tesla, and we hope she will continue our C-line.
