WHITE’S TAB ROM

This outstanding producer came into this world in a litter that would become famous, around the world. The breeding of CH JEEP rom x TABBY GIRL produced dogs like Palm’s ERNIE 3xw, Ramrod’s CH TRAMP, a 4xw that produced some serious show dogs…most of them were not registered as CH’s, but had met all the criteria to obtain it! There’s no doubt about the fact that this litter made a...

WHITE’S IRENE POR

Well, lets see where do we start with this little gyp’s tribute. I guess we can start by saying she was never shown. I received info from a very good friend and knowledgeable dogman familiar with this family of dogs, that Irene was a cold bitch. Some will ask why then is she even being written about. Why was this bitch even bred? To answer this question one should understand who the...

JOEY 2xW 1xGL

JOEY 2xW 1xGL Well, like most dogs that has passed through ones hands each had a permanent place of warmth each time we are reminded or thinking of them, be them with us or not. Yet, another fine such example is Hudson Hawk’s Joey born to Liquorice kid’s Joey and George’s Nicky P.O.R (she deserves this title!!!), as he was the only pup in the litter. As for some background...

BLADE 2xW 1xGL

I have decided to write about a dog not many, well probably only a privileged few has met and known for the time he was with us. Some little back round info; the late D.Carrol and Southener put the breeding together using Junior (GR CH BUSTER BROWN /Le Fonze’s Buddah) to Blackbird (Shack Nicky), what came out of it was a very good litter. In no particular order: Tumble’s Bella...
