Tasy was my independent, "what's in it for me" dog, although she got more affectionate in her old age. When she was still able to do so we had this game in the morning where she had to come up on the bed for some love before I would get up to get breakfast for her. Food was always very important to Tasy so she gave into my game. When she got too old to get up on the bed she would just come over to the side of the bed for a big hug. Other than this Tasy wasn't one for hugs or cuddling. Tasy was my clown and as long as you kept a good sense of humour she was a source of many laughs. She was an extremely intelligent dog who you could always count on to get into trouble, especially when food was involved. On more than one occasion I came home to find flour and jam, etc. spread all over the kitchen floor - Tasy trying her hand at baking again. ;) My mom nicknamed her "Trouble" the day I got her because the first thing she did when she went into my mom's house was to run over to the cat dishes and send everything flying. Well, my mom couldn't have been more correct. Two days later Tasy managed to break her leg trying to climb out of the dog pen. She was just nine weeks old at the time. She had a cast on for six weeks and it was months of physiotherapy several times a day before I even knew for sure that she wouldn't have a limp for the rest of her life. However, even the cast didn't slow Tasy down. She still managed to get over a four-foot high barrier across the kitchen door so she could get into the front room to chew things and meet me at the door when I came home from work. Tasy remained a whiz at opening doors, etc. throughout her life. As I said, she made my life wonderfully interesting and always kept me on my toes. I sure do miss my "Trouble".
On the Trail
Tasy ran lead for me for many years. She had no problem with being up front and she was very valuable at getting the team going when I was just starting out in sledding. At the time my other two dogs where too old for sledding so I was getting together with some friends who had untrained dogs to put together a team. At that time, Tasy was the only dog that would run lead.
In the Show Ring
Tasy finished her Championship April 26, 1992. She obtained two Best Puppy in Group wins and a Group 3rd win during her show career. She also came second in a large Novice Bitch Class at the 1992 US SHCA National Specialty.
Tasy obtained her CGC title at the 1992 US National Specialty and has been trained to the CDX level in obedience.
