Planned Breedings

8 12 2017 Sad news

Merci

We are now planning a breeding for Tracer to Patton. Very excited about the possibility of some beautiful puppies from that combination. If it all works out Tracer should have an all rough sable litter the latter part of January 2018. I will post more details after the breeding takes place.

BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS TOO!
*******************************************************************************


We did another breeding that we are excited about. We  bred our smooth champion Melody to Bridgit and Miguel’s champion son – Ch Avalar Tairis Autumn Gold, aka Adam. Adam is a handsome boy, line bred on Ch Windhaven Stranger in Paradise. Melody is the result of years of successful breeding at Cherann’s Collies. Melody is an absolutely sound, pretty girl with an irresistible personality. We never got to keep a puppy from her so we wanted to try this breeding with Adam. I thought Melody might be getting a bit old to have puppies – then I saw her jump over a 40 inch tall gate from a stand like it was nothing. Cheryl produces very hardy, long- lived collies! See the link for the Melody and Adam pedigree below. It should be a very nice combination, tying in to Cheryl’s line on the top and bottom of the pedigree. 

NEWS FLASH* MELODY had her puppies on September 10, 2017. We had three beautiful babies from Melody.  Unfortunately we lost two of the puppies. The smooth sable girl, Jilly, is the sole survivor. She is adorable. See my blog for the details.

UPDATE 9/11/2017:

**********************************************************************************************************************************************

And another potentially awesome breeding has just been done. Our beautiful Carina (Tairis A Cara Bonita) co-owned with Cheryl Kobularcik in Missouri, has just been bred to Cheryl’s outstanding yearling male, Landon, (Cherann’s Cherokee on Sacred Ground) Landon has 10 points, 2 majors, and is sure to have an exciting show career ahead of him.  He is a collie that turns heads when he enters a show ring. He is a son of Ch Wyndlair Cherokee Exclamation, out of Cherann’s Luv the Contessa.

Landon and Carina are definitely beauty type collies. If we get puppies from this breeding, they will all be sables and whites, most with white factoring, or there could also be a white with a sable head- no merles, or tricolors. All roughs. If Carina takes from this breeding, her puppies will be due about October 10, 2017.

PREVIOUS LITTERS

We waited until we were sure to announce that our elegant tricolor girl, Layla, bred by Cheryl Kobularcik and Susan Joslin, and co-owned with Cheryl, was expecting before we made an announcement. We saw at least three puppies on her sonogram at our vet’s office. Layla was bred to our big bear- Ch. Monarch Cornerstone. It should be a great match. Layla could have tricolor, sable, sable merle or blue merle puppies the end of February. I’m praying all goes well and we have some beautiful, healthy puppies from this exciting combination. I will post the pedigree and pix of the new babies when they arrive. It is a double up on Ch Windhaven Stranger in Paradise a few generations back. Update: Layla had a tricolor boy, a tricolor girl and a sable boy. Very sweet babies!

We decided to breed our Bridgit daughter, and favorite new champion, Poppy. We considered a few different studs and eventually decided to breed her to Lea Bertsch’s pretty boy- Sampson. Sampson is a moderately sized collie with a nice head and strong movement. He and Poppy are physically complimentary to each other. Poppy already has a triple dose of the great Milas stud- Ch Windhaven Stranger in Paradise in her pedigree, so we felt it should work well to outcross her. Sampson, aka Ch Scalloway’s Lion Hunter is from a litter of five champions. Sampson and his siblings helped their sire- Ch Divine’s Golden Opportunity- win the stud dog class at the 2015 Collie Club of America specialty. Sampson has made Lea proud by winning best owner handled dog on multiple occasions.  There are some great collies in his sire’s pedigree, including the former number one collie- Grand Champion- Gentry’s Braveheart. Sampson’s dam’s side also contains some great collies- including, Ch Lisara’s Slick Chic, Ch Capella’s Midnight Blues, Ch Alcor Pen Name, and Ch Clarion Incognito.

Poppy had her puppies sired by Samson on Dec. 27, 2016. She was very considerate to wait until after Christmas! I absolutely love these puppies! Poppy and Sampson appear to have been a great match! Poppy had 4 sable boys, 3 sable girls and a sable headed white girl. Apparently Sampson is white factored. I knew Poppy was, and the appearance of a white pup confirms that Samson is white factored also.  I am very excited about the future possibilities for these puppies. I am hanging on to the tri-factored, white factored sable girl I call Willa, and the white factored sable boy called Patton. I am co-owning Maxie with Lea Bertsch.

Poppy gets her CH 10 15 16

Tina and Larry Patterson’s pretty tri smooth champion Robin, aka Ch Divine’s Suddenly An Angel, was also been bred to Castle.  This is an outcross breeding, but Robin is a sound, elegant girl with outstanding ancestors herself. Robin’s dam is the pretty sable girl, Ch Tairis Persistent Witness, co-owned with the Pattersons. Robin’s sire is Conan, a champion and champion producer who won the Stud Dog class at the Collie Club of America in 2015. Her grandsire is Ch Gentry’s Braveheart, who is a multiple Best in Show winner and former number one collie. 

NEWSFLASH: Robin delivered three girl puppies on Oct. 26, 2016. She did a great job and we are hoping her little trio will do well.  See our blog for details and pictures.

Onyx was bred to our new boy from Monarch Collies- Ch Monarch Cornerstone (Castle), in early March 2016. She gave birth to a rainbow litter of seven pretty babies on May 3rd, 2016. We lost two of her puppies but the other five are doing fine. The breakdown of Onyx litter is:  2 sable boys, 1 sable girl, 1 blue boy, and 1 tricolor girl.

We are very excited to see how these first puppies sired by Castle turn out. There are some promising ones in this litter.  All of the puppies are in their permanent homes now as pets or show prospects. I’m looking forward to seeing how some of them will do at shows this coming winter.

Glasgowhill Midnight Onyx (Onyx) is our pretty girl from Glasgowhill Collies.  She did not care for shows, but prefers chilling at home with us.  Onyx is a CEA normal eyed carrier, OFA hips Good, PRA cleared by parentage,  MN on MDR1, and normal thyroid certified by Dr Jean Dodd’s Hemopet lab. 

Castle  (Ch Monarch Cornerstone) is the new boy here from Monarch Collies in Washington state. We are thrilled to co-own this beautiful boy with a solid gold pedigree of collies we admire. Castle’s pedigree is on our blog, and Onyx’s pedigree is on our pedigree page. Castle’s sire is Ch Milas Aurealis Latin Samba- sire of Ch Aurealis Coldplay, Silver Gr Ch Aurealis Endeavor, Ch Aurealis Whimsical- 2016 BOS winner at the CCA national specialty. Castle’s dam is Ch Monarch Clarion Goddess of the Rainbow- a CCA Award of Merit winner. She also won a Collie specialty best of breed award in Washington state in March 2016!

I think Castle will have a very positive influence on Tairis Collies.

 Our sweet, smooth girl Melody (Ch Cherann’s Tairis So Melodramatic)  gave birth to seven puppies on May 6, 2016 with her breeder/ co-owner, in Missouri.  Melly was bred to her first love, Miguel, (Ch Cherann’s No Stranger To Luv.)   Melly is so sound and elegant, and Miguel is a handsome boy that has produced outstanding quality.  Melody could have had sables, sable merles, blue merles, and tricolors- some white factored. Each of Melody’s puppies has a 50:50 chance of being smooth or rough coated.  Sadly, a virus ran through Cheryl’s kennel which affected Melody and her babies. Of Melody’s litter of seven, only one puppy survived.  Very sad. Cheryl named the surviving puppy Glass- after the author of the book The Revenant- about a man that survived against terrible odds. Glass is ADORABLE! He is a very white factored harlequin blue merle –like his mother, except he is a rough. He is so cute, and smart with a big, bubbly personality. Cheryl thought he would be a good show prospect until she decided he would not have the bone and substance needed for a show boy. Glass is now with a living in south Texas as the companion of two darling little boys. Melody is back home with us, and has reclaimed her spot on the loveseat.

Our Bridgit / Ryan breeding Nov 2014

Bridgit getting her championship as a 15 month old

 

Gr Ch Aurealis Endeavor

We pondered for months about who to breed Bridgit to on her next season, and decided on the very handsome Gr Ch Aurealis Endeavor- bred and owned by Deborah Falk and her daughters. We think Endeavor – aka Ryan- is a perfect match for Bridgit. Ryan is a younger brother of the beautiful Ch Aurealis Coldplay.

 

Bridgit had six puppies on January 22, 2015. Four boys and two girls.

1 tricolor girl

1 sable girl

3 sable boys

1 tricolor boy.

All of Bridgit’s puppies are spoken for.

We co-leased a beautiful sable merle headed white champion collie from  St. Roch Collies. Our good friends, Nick and Ellen Moyers,  generously let us lease their special girl -Ch St Roch’s  Moonlight Serenade- aka Flurry- for a litter. We have admired Flurry since we first saw her shine as a 6 month old puppy at a Fort Worth Collie Club specialty Show. Flurry is the consummate show girl. She is sound, flashy, with a  beautiful profile, and the effortless movement a herding dog should have. Flurry was bred by Jeanie Driscol. Her pedigree is line bred Clarion. Flurry is not only a beauty, but a happy, self- assured clown. We love her!

Flurry was bred to Adam- aka- Ch Avalar Tairis Autumn Gold- a very promising  young sable son of our Bridgit-  (Ch Milas Madam Butterfly), sired by Miguel,  aka-   Ch Cherann’s No Stranger To Luv. Adam is a handsome  boy that picked up  10 points and both his majors  as a yearling- handled by Jay Lee, and Cheryl Kobularcik. He is now a CHAMPION- handled to his last points by Jamie Ennis.  Adam is owned by our friend Judy Gorham of Avalar Collies. We think the combination of Flurry and Adam is an exciting one.   Puppies were born March 21st, 2014, and they are beautiful!

Flurry went go back home after she raised her puppies, but the pick puppy- Carina- stayed with us here at Tairis.  All her puppies are in wonderful homes. We hope that Gemma, Iona, and Carina will become show girls like their mother. Time will tell…

 

Flurry had her puppies on March 21, 2014. Her litter consists of:

3 sable and white girls

3 sable merle girls

2 blue merle boys.

She also had a sable boy but he only lived a day.

Flurry had an easy whelping, but we lost 4 of her 9 babies. We believe it was due to her being on Trifexis for the year before she was bred. Flurry never made an abundance of milk as she had with her first litter. We know of other bitches on Trifexis that had this same problem.  Our vets said nature would work things out with supply and demand and the pups should not be supplemented. Sometimes vets are wrong.  It is so sad to lose even one puppy, and to lose 4 was heartbreaking. We were able to save 5 of her puppies by supplementing them with bottles of Goat A Lac.

See our blog for pictures of Flurry’s puppies.
