Tokay has made the journey to USA to
become part of the Terraglo Team. Tokay's USA show debut will be after
she turns 6 months.
My breeders, more importantly my
friends Terry and Gloria graciously gave me my foundation, my start and
my top dog - Miss Splash. One condition Miss Splash came to Australia
was that Terry and Gloria come to visit her the next year. This started
a pattern of bi-annual visits to Australia and in the in-between years,
I would go to USA to the Nationals and help Terry and Gloria.
On Terry and Gloria's last visit in
July 2005, we took holidays to the Rutherglen Wine area in Victoria. Our
3rd shared passion, Dogs / good food / Vineyards. Rutherglen is famous
for it's fortified wines. In particular, we all enjoyed the Tokay. A
smooth, rich dreamy special drop. It was this shared holiday we spent
taking bets on how many puppies Miss Splash would have in her last
I wanted a Miss Splash daughter, I
was delighted when she gave me 4 boys and 4 girls to choose from. I was
splitting hairs between 2 girls in particular, definitely picks of the
litter. Tokay reminds me so much of "Morty" and Poppy is very
similar to "Banjo" it's uncanny. Eventually, I decided on
Poppy and Gloria and Terry wanted Tokay.
To go the full circle and be able to
give back a girl to Terry and Gloria is a great honour for me and
We will keep you updated with current pix and show results of Tokay
in USA, it's a long journey for a puppy but I'm thrilled, knowing this
special little girl is living with two of the best people to raise dogs
and her extended doggie family. Uncle Dude, Uncle Quake, Aunty Irish,
Grandma Bucca and Grandpa Sizzle.
