101 TFTs - Two Pair
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache has special requirements to log a FIND. Read the instructions below.
This is the third cache in the "101 TFTs" series. I am often escorted on my cache searches with my two Toy Fox Terriers (TFTs) Echo and Jazz. These caches are dedicated to them.
Before I had Jazz, my girlfriend and I listed Echo on craigslist in the hope of breeding him. After a month of listing Echo as an "intact" male TFT looking for another TFT, we got a request from a nice lady with a female chihuahua/minature pinscher that said that Echo looked handsome and maybe we could get our dogs together. Her name was Chantal and she sent a picture of her dog, Wendie.
Well we decided that Wendie looked nice too and we decided to meet them and see how our dogs got along with each other. Chantal brought along her daughter and we met at this dog park which was roughly between our two homes. So here we were, the two pair of us herding our two dogs around to see if they liked each other. After meeting several times at this park, we decided they liked each other and we agreed to give them Echo for a few days when Chantal knew that Wendie was in heat.
The day came when we got the call, so we all met at this cache site and we passed Echo into Chantal's and her daughter's care. Several days later, we picked up Echo and waited. Several weeks after that we agreed to meet again at this site and you could see Wendie was getting big already.
In early November of 2002, late at night we got a call. Wendie was starting to deliver some puppies. Wendie delivered 6 small black puppies. Eight weeks later we got to choose which puppy we would take since we agreed that our "fee" would be the pick of the litter. That puppy would become Jazz. Chantal kept two of the girls and she gave another one to her mother. We got 30 requests for the two remaining puppies. They went to good families.
To log this cache, you must satisfy TWO requirements. You must find FOUR of my signature tokens. A pair of Echos (two different colors) and a pair of Jazzes (two different colors). You must then find the cache and sign it. To log your find, you must post a picture of the qualifying 4 tokens with your log entry. No passing the tokens between cachers, I will strive to make enough tokens available for everyone. You can use the same tokens that you used to log the "No Pair" and "One Pair" caches. I will mail a special FTF token to the first finder who satisfies all the requirements.
The cache is a cylindrical plastic container. There is room for small trade items.
I am marking this cache as a 2/1 only because you must find some tokens ahead of time before locating this cache. This is a dog friendly area, so bring them out with you too.
As of the cache hiding date, there are about 385 Echos (in clear, yellow and black)tokens and 70 black Jazz tokens. There is a new Black and White (B/W) Jazz token now allowing you to make a second pair. As of the cache hiding date there was a single B/W Jazz in the field. There will be another B/W Jazz a day dropped until the FTF. Then they will go into general circulation.
Congratulations go to geowal701 who found the very first B/W Jazz token. The FTF award is being mailed out. As of May 25th, the tokens will slowly go into general circulation. Note tokens 1-7 were hidden silently and await your discovery.
Update 8/10/05 - Cache was replaced in same place.
Update 12/5/05 - cache was replaced slightly east.
