I have added this page for all those that admire my dogs and are now showing similar breeding - thank you, such a compliment. Hopefully this page can be kept up to date so that you may also be well informed.
Very proud of Ned "Ch Tzutique Seize The Moment" who is in the very capable hands of Terri Greig in Cairns - he has certainly made his mark in the north. What they lack in numbers they make up for in quality, there are some very good quality dogs in the north - Ned is holding his own and winning Best in Group, Runner Up Best in Group and Classes in Show in very stiff competition. He is an open show multi Best In Show winner. Half way to his grand title at the tender age of 16 months and No 1 all breeds Qld Non Sporting Rising Star.
I am very fortunate with the bloodlines that have been made available to me to incorporate with my breeding and will at a later date take full advantage of this. But that is for the future so stay tuned.
2012 will be an interesting year, my puppies have become adults having some fantastic wins along the way. Including Bogart "Ch Tzutique Little Bit Special" winning Runner Up Best in Show at 9 months of age and Inca "Ch Shilan In Cahoots With Tzutique (Imp NZ)" winning Runner Up Best in Show at the Victorian Specialty Show at 10 months of age.
I will of course still be playing with some puppies.....
Very excited with my new black and white bloodlines and am looking forward to introducing them to everyone. I also have other new arrivals to introduce.
We ventured down to Sydney to the Sydney Royal and NSW Specialty Shows. All the dogs had a win with the stars being Bogart winning Runner Up Best in Show at the specialty with an entry of 44 shih tzu from all over Australia and Potter taking puppy of breed at the Royal with 13 puppy entries. Unfortunately couldn't make it back for general specials day due to work and family commitments.
Back in Brisbane and Potter takes BEST IN SHOW at the tender age of just 11 months!
Ned is still continuing on his winning ways in the North, taking yet another Best In Show.
Not to be outdone, Bogart also takes BEST IN SHOW!
Ned has had an awesome weekend up north taking back to back BEST IN SHOW'S, one of them under breed specialist Ted Pickering!
Ned makes the trek down to Brisbane for the Royal and takes Best of Breed!
WHAT A FABULOUS YEAR WE ARE HAVING!
A Super Congratulations to Terri with Ned taking Runner Up Dog of the Year for Zone 3 2012!!
A couple of exciting litters have been born, pleased to welcome some solid blacks to Tzutique and we have some stunning black and whites incorporating the famous Wenrick bloodlines.
Due to the purchase of a business in 2012, all my show dogs were clipped to allow me time to concentrate on the business for a while - however now in 2013, I am ready to roll again and already have had great success with the pups born late 2012.
*STOP PRESS* Ned gains his Supreme Championship with another Best in Show win!
Matisse, one of the above mentioned black and whites has had an amazing 2013. Best in Show winner from a minor puppy. Also whilst still a puppy he has all the qualifications needed to become a Supreme Champion, just needs some more points which means watch out for him in 2014!
Whoopie, a solid black titled with ease and is a Best in Group winner and Puppy of the Year qualifier.
Hollie (Ch Tzutique A Tail To Tell) in the hands of Melissa O'Brien and Belinda Heersema was also titled as a puppy with Puppy of breed wins at both Brisbane and Melbourne Royal Shows but topping it with Puppy in Group at Brisbane Royal (Ekka).
Matisse (Supreme Ch Tzutique Paint By Numbers) has beaten Ned's record and is now the youngest Supreme Champion shih tzu in Australia.
