Flax(VLF118) was born on April 24, 2006 in the Lazuli. Her mother was HP and her father was an unknwon rover. Flax was born in a large mix litter, HP's litter-mate sister Young also gave birth to a litter of pups around the same time. Flax's litter-mates were her three sisters named Lallie(VLF120), Landie(VLF121) and Caroline(VLF123) and three brothers named Bernard(VLM119), Teaser(VLM122) and Shaka Zulu(VLM124). There was a total of seven pups in all. The Lazuli were falling in numbers so the pups boost the Lazuli's numbers back up. All the pups survived their first five months. Then in December the dominant female, Flax's grandmother, Cazanna died from disease and her daughter Aretha became the new dominant female. Flax and her litter survived to their first birthat, but a month later in May 2007, Flax died from TB.
