|TAGETARL KENNELS The COMPLETE Package: Presence, Performance, Passion and Prestige|
|Australian Champion TAGETARL SILKY STEEL 8010002373 dob: 02/03/02|
|JASPER has been an awesome show dog. He is absolute terrier to the bone and always enters the ring with a "so what's ya problem" attitude.
He is boss of the ACDs and rules the roost at home.
Although only lightly shown his wins have been impressive. Awarded Runner Up To BEST IN SHOW as well as 5 BEST IN GROUP awards.
The judges comment on awarding him Runner Up BIS was:
"It is hard to find a Silky nowdays who has either correct size, correct colour,
correct type or correct movement and this dog has ALL of those attributes."
What more can we say!
JASPER is truely my "Little Man". He is absoloutely devoted to me and is my constant shadow when he is in the house.
It is so funny to see him growling at the 'big' cattle dog boys if i am walking one of them.
|*** STOP PRESS ***
Jasper was only shown twice
in 2008 for two
BEST IN GROUP awards
Go little man...you still have it
|Well, we decided to bring the little man out of retirement in 2010 at 8 years old.
He made the trip down to Alice Springs with us in May, a 3,000 kilometre round trip by road.
Not only did Jasper get some great comments from all 4 judges but was also awarded:
2 x R/UP BEST EXHIBIT IN GROUP and 2 x STATE BRED IN SHOW
Mr Missen commented that Jasper was... "A lovely silky that is correct size, not too big with very good colour. He is very well presented."

|Guess who snuck into the Cabin after dark
in Alice Springs...
well you can't expect an old man
to sleep outside in the cold can you...
|One of Jaspers natural attributes is his
gorgeous reaching movement
and glamerous ring presence.
These photos were taken late 2010...
