UKC CH Sympa's Time 2 Believe U R It
He was born one of two puppies, but the other pup was humanely euthanized shortly after birth for a nonrepairable birth defect that would severely limit his quality and quantity of life (he was not expected to make it 2 weeks). Because of this, Tag was raised as a "singleton" - which means he DEMANDS attention a lot!
He finished his UKC Championship with 4 competition wins under 3 judges and a Group 1 and Group 3 placement! We have to thank the wonderful Junior Handler, Meleigha Schimmoller, for handling him to his last 2 competition wins (2 Best of Breeds, 1 Group 3). He is the youngest UKC CH for Sympa, finishing at less than 11 months old.
Prior to finishing in UKC, Tag attended his first AKC match and show. For the match, he made us very proud by going Best of Breed, Group 2 out of a very large and competitive herding group! Everyone seems to pick up on his "attitude" and is drawn to watching him. He's a vocal boy, makes all kinds of sounds.
He lived with me while he was young and showing, then has retired to my parents house. He keeps the house active and happy!
Below are some photos I have on my computer, but my Dad has a lot more :)
