Phoenix came to me as a result of being lucky enough to look after and show some of Sheryl Rutlege's (ATISHA) Tibetan Terriers whilst living in the USA.
Phoenix is a joy to live with and is a proven sire. He has had a shortened show career but a successful one. He was an American Champion by the age of 10 months, and in the UK held his own in the UK despite the influence of politics.
In late 2007 he was clipped off, this was due to my double transplant operation and not being able to cope with his tremendous coat as well as go back to work full time. In April 2013 'Fifi' as he is affectionately known, was neutered, so now he can live with my bitches with no worries of any mis-matings!
Phoenix is now the only TT owned by us, but my first TT came from Ken Sinclair (ARAKI) in 1993 (Araki Klever Klone). Saran won 1 CC and 4 Reserve CC's before he was aged two. On Ken's advice, he was clipped him off shortly after he won his first CC, and then whilst playing he managed to knock out one of his front teeth. That was the end of his very successful show career!
A couple of bitches followed, but neither were up to show standard and due to limited space were re-homed to live as adored family members. It wasn't until I moved to the USA, where I was asked to handle someone else's Tibetan that they got under my skin again!
The first dog from Sheryl was Solo (AM CH Atisha's Exclusively Magic), he was made an American Champion by 10 months old but was not of a type to bring back to the UK. Before Solo arrived, I had two bitches from Sheryl to repair their coat and show to gain their championships. These were AM CH Atisha's Blaze of Ballynagh (Dara) and also AM CH Mikudi Craklin Rose (Sugar).
Lucky is Peter's dog, he is a Greyhound x Bull Terrier cross breed. He is Peters soulmate and is rather spoilt to say the least!
Lucky was born on 15 September 2011, and Peter rescued him at 4 months old due to him being beaten by his owner. Peter has had Lucky with him 24/7 ever since.
Lucky loves everyone and everything.... except Phoenix!! They really hate each other and must be kept apart at all times! We can walk them together, but must keep enough distance between them so they can't annoy each other!
Lucky is very much a part of our family and there is nothing that he likes more than to join us in bed on a Saturday morning!
