Family Trees: a colorful clan – InDesign Template

Apex panaramic clan family treeversion of the colorful clan for Apex (the first puppy we raised for GDB)

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on colorful clan family tree for a 4″ x 12″ panoramic frame. I’ve put together a simple Adobe InDesign template to recreate the one from As I was working on it I realized that I didn’t need to have different colors of paper. With a color printer I could just print my background color.

For a sample I decided to show Apex’s (the first puppy we raised for Guide Dogs for the Blind) family tree. As you can see I don’t have all the birth dates and I don’t have any death date though some of these dogs have certainly passed away. But I though it would work to show what the template is like. Of course when you open the template up in InDesign you will be able to customize anything you would like from the fonts to the background colors.

You can download the Panoramic Clan Template here from Dropbox. When you open it up in Dropbox it will look like crazy gobbledegook. But once you save it to you computer and open it in InDesign it will work fine. I made this template in InDesign CS6. Let me know if you have problems or suggestions. I’m hoping to make more templates this coming year.

  1. I know that his sister Arizona had a litter July of 2013 with Banta (our second pup’s dad). Looks like one of those pups might be in class right now. I’ll have to check to see when Aqua had her last litter. I haven’t heard anything about Aretha and Avalon who graduated as guides or the others who had different careers. I’m not likely to hear about them though. I found a litter for Aqua in August of 2012. There were 5 guides from that litter and three career changes. Both his sisters have been successful breeders. That are surely retired now. Having puppies is hard work.
