In 2005 we decided to add MORE brains & beauty to our family and purchased 2 beautiful parti-poodles. The Black/white parti is JC Pioneer High Voltage and we call him "Jazz" and silver/white parti is QT Pawz Hurray for Hollywood aka "Hollywood" . Not only are they a very smart breed of dog, they are non-shedding, and they also helped me practice my skills of grooming a poodle in my grooming shop.
We have had 2 litters of very stunning PartiTyme poodle puppies and you can see more pictures of the parti-puppies on my past puppy's page. We hope to have another litter someday in the future.
Noel, came to us as a rescue when she was just a baby puppy. She was the " big sister" to all the other dogs here., and made rounds out to the barn to Keep watch over the horse and ducks and chickens. Actually we think she just liked "gathering" the fresh eggs for her own breakfast.
We lovingly enjoyed her companionship for 13 yrs. She went to Rainbow Bridge in 2010.
This is Tramp. He came to us as a stray, found running around in town. He was not in good shape, skinny, dirty, had areas on his back that looked like he had been badly burned. He had ear infection and also an unknown infection in all his toenails. His teeth were broken and ground down, like he had been trying to escape from somewhere. I said he could come here, that I was sure after his infections and medical problems were cleared up I would not have any trouble finding him a home.
I didn't even try to find him a new home...he stole our hearts. He was then neutered,and is the only longhair dachshund at DixieDox. (so far !)
Although " Tamalie " is not so fluffy, she joined our family in 1997 thanks to David Hoy with the intentions of becoming a show dog and also my grooming shop mascott. When clients came in with a matted dog, I told them this is what their dog was going to look like when I was done with it ! With the registered name of WildWood's Black Eyed Susan, she quickly earned her call name of Tamalie. She was hot ! Hot in the show ring. Very animated with a bubbly personality and nice conformation earned her a 5 pt. major her first time out, overseveral prestigous specials ! She finished her Championship very quickly and then was spayed and was content to be a loving pet and at 14 yrs old continues to be the grooming shop mascott.
This is Paco, our Mexican Red Headed Amazon Parrot. She is now about 20 yrs. old. She likes to scream for attention, and the dachshunds would LOVE to get ahold of her!
Thank goodness she didn't learn to bark!
In 2002, " Mercy", a Japanese Chin came on the scene and she took over the position of the grounds keeper and over see'er of the barn, after Noel died. I guess no one ever told her she was suppose to be prissy & dainty, and she quickly zooms through the barn to check on the chickens & ducks, then through the horse yard and back to the house, where then she assumes her position as royalty on the hearth of the fire place.
