[Pedigree] [Tater's Litter] [2005 National] [Show Record]
Tater's final years were certainly her greatest. We lost both Maizey and Cosby within weeks of each other and then two weeks later we nearly lost Tater to a ruptured gall bladder. Thanks to both Tater's incredible will to live and our talented friend and clinician, Dan Brown, she survived. Tater had a big job, she had to help heal my heart from the loss of my two beloved hounds and also become the matriarch of the house. She did. She really did. Tater became the center of our world and she was glad to do so. I think of those last years with her and I am so thankful for them. I miss her every single day, but I can do so now with fewer tears. God speed, Bugaroo.
Tater was the seventh puppy born in our first litter here at Nunya. We feel VERY lucky to have Tater. We had an ultra sound and radiographs taken when Maizey was pregnant and they indicated that we should expect 5 to 6 pups. We really wanted to keep a girl and were quite disappointed when all six pups had been born and all were boys. I was on the phone reporting Maizey's successful whelping to a friend when Tater decided to pop out! She was very small and was not breathing, but some quick work got her going and the rest is history!
So far, Tater appears to be everything we were hoping to achieve out of our breeding. Her mother, Maizey is a lovely bitch, but needs improvement in rear angulation, rear movement, and a better "bottom line." We chose to breed her to Bacchus a beautiful boy owned by Joe and Lisa Ivey. Bacchus has everything we wanted, but could also use improvement in his length of body. Tater seems to have gotten wonderful features from both of her parents. She has incredible conformation, her movement is effortless and clean, and her temperament is as stable as they come.
Tater has a very successful show career. She has had limited time in the show ring and has done very well. We had an absolutely indescribable National and are also proud to announce that Tater recently earned her Canine Good Citizen title and completed her Championship. Among her many accomplishments, she won Best of Winners at the 2005 national and won a Bred By Exhibitor Hound Group One at the all breed Lewiston Cluster. We are so enamored with and excited about our Tater-Bug-A-Roo and look forward to working on her obedience and trailing titles in the near future.
Tater's biggest fault to date is that she has me completely wrapped around her paw. I am not exactly sure what it is about this girl, but she can do no wrong in my book and she knows it! I spoil her rotten and cherish every day I have with her. I love each and every one of my dogs but there is something about this one, I just cannot describe it. Perhaps it is that she was our first born here, perhaps it is that she is just so adorable, perhaps it is that she has been so successful, but most likely it is that she knows she is queen of the world!
