Shida Diamonds are Forever

prcd PRA: tested carrier
CERF normal 09/08

Tabitha was originally scheduled to go to Canada. She had to stay some time for the weather to get better and good thing she did - she would never make the 12 inch height requirement for Canada! She is not a small girl, but she has a heart as good as gold and she reminds me so much of her mother, whom I lost. Tabby has really helped fill the hole left by her passing.

Well I have to say - I ruined Tabitha's coat not long after the 2006 Nationals. Being new to using coat oils, I put her down in oil and let her go too long. Then it seemed everytime I got close to having her coat back - she would blow it again. I feel she finally has enough coat to be competitive again now.

Tabby did really well at the 2006 Nationals, placing 2nd in the huge 6-9 month puppy bitch class the two days she was shown. photos by Leslie Searcy
Always the Natural. She knew how to show before she was even born.
