Corey’s first puppy, Tango, lives in CT with Randy, Pat and her roommate, Becky. She has begun her hunt test career and will start pheasant hunting and competing in agility and obedience in the fall of 2005. Tango won her first formal event, YGRC’s puppy stakes at 7 months of age, earned her CGC at 9 months, and her WC at 10 months. She also passed the Hunting Instinct Test of the American Hunting Dog Club with a perfect score and then earned her JH in four straight tests before 18 months of age. She has since gone on to pass her Apprentice Hunting Dog test and earn her WCX before two years of age.
She has started both her obedience and agility careers, earning her CD, NAJ, WCX and RN at the 2005 GR National Specialty and finishing up her NA the next weekend and her OA a month later. She completed her AX and CDX in December 2006.
Tango whelped her first litter, the Fire litter, sired by Ch Hillock’s Meredreme Kazaam, in July 2007 and her second litter, the Jimmy Buffett litter, by CH Ashford’s Saffron O’Reilly UD JH WCX OS SDHF in November 2008. Her titled kids include four AKC performance champions:
- OTCH Gaylan’s Fire in the Sky UDX OBHF CCA FFX-OP (200 score, GRCA Obedience Hall of Fame, multiple HITs)
- MACH Gaylan’s Fireside Affair JH NF WCX VC ADHF CCA
- MACH ADCH Gaylan’s Ji:Hah Fire Keeper CD RA NF NJP CCA CGC TDI SSA SG MAD
- OTCH Gaylan’s Fire When Ready UDX OM1 VER GO RN TD JH MX MXJ XF WCX OBHF VCX CCA
- Gaylan’s Earth, Wind and Fire CDX JH WCX TT (HIT)
- Gaylan’s Fireball CDX RE JH AX OAJ NF
- U-CD Gaylan’s Ready, Aim, Fire CD
Since the litter, Tango finished her MACH, entered the GRCA Agility Dog Hall of Fame, and qualified for the 2011 AKC Agility Championships. She also finished her Utility Dog title with placements, her Senior Hunter (SH) title, her UKC Upland Hunter (UH) title and her UKC Hunting Retriever (HR) title. She was our first dog to earn the UKC Upland Hunter (UH) title. To see more photos of Tango, go to http://community.webshots.com/user/rgmbillsfan.
