I have always been
around animals, having grown up on a farm. I competed in horse shows for
quite awhile before showing dogs. At one time I was showing both horses
and dogs before deciding that it was with the dogs where my heart was.
I believe that being out and showing
competitively in obedience is a wonderful asset in the planning of our breeding
program. Over the years of showing, I have accumulated over 6500 OTCH
am currently showing two dogs, OTCH Tanbark's
Always UDX12 OGM
and OTCH Tanbark's Ready Set Go UDX2 OM4.
Patiently waiting in the wings is a Coke grandaughter, Tanbark's Ubetcha.
The above picture
on the left is “OTCH Tanbark’s Something’s Burnin UDX15
- Coke. Coke was 2007 OBEDIENCE DOG OF THE YEAR. She accomplished
this just 2 months shy of 11 years of age. She continued to compete until
she was 12 years old. Some of her other accomplishments include
perfect scores of 200, World Series Winner,
National Specialty Winner, 73 High in Trials, 55 High Combines' and dam of our
first Field Trial Champion. I did not
start training her until she was two years old. Once we started training, it
was hard to take time out for puppies, which was the original reason I kept her.
She was quick to learn and always willing to work.
Coke is now 16 -1/2 years old and is still is my naughty girl.
The picture on the
right is OTCH Tanbark's Always UDX12 OGM. What
a thrill it is to step in the ring with Sly.
Whether we are training, showing, or just playing at
home she truly lives up to her name as she is ALWAYS
ready and willing to play the game. I love the
above picture of her as it really shows the spirit
of this little red dog.
Although Mike my husband is not involved with the breeding
process, he has been showing for over 30 years and also is an AKC obedience
judge. He also helps with the raising of the puppies, taking pictures and gives
his support, especially when I am out showing.
