Temora News Today

12-12-2009 to 12-13-2009
News From Abroad!!
Nothing like last minute show results, thought we were done for the year!
Anne Moilanen from Truozzys kennel went to Riga, Latvia for The Terrier Specialty. The judge was Ligita Zake from Latvia. MEGI (Temora's Make A Memory) took part in the competition.

Megi needed her last Latvian junior CAC to finish her Latvian and Estonian Junior Championship. She was BOB-junior as well as BOB with the last junior CAC and also with the title of LV CLW'09
Congrats to Anne & Megi!!!!


2009 has been a Great year and I have made new friends with not only people that have purchased dogs from me, but with other Breeders here in the USA and other countries as well.
We all share the same passion, the love of this wonderful little dog called the
Australian Terrier
Thank You All and have a Wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year!
Temora Australian Terriers

It has been busy around here, Siren has gone to a wonderful home with someone that already has an Aussie from me. Libby, after this litter, will be going to a home where she will become an agility-flyball-earthdog competitor and she will also compete in UKC shows. I will be seeing her at shows on occasion but she will be in performance events now. I will be keeping one of her puppies to go forward with. Paris has been bred to Rufus and she leaves on the 17th to go to Scotland/England for a year to whelp (if she is pregnant, to early to know) and to hopefully gain her UK title. She will be a American and UK Champion by the time she returns in 2011 (so we hope). She will be staying with my friend Sheila Stoddart. I have Rufus from Sheila right now until next year when he will return to Scotland. Piffin has a possible home as well, he may be leaving at the end of the year to go on to new adventures. It sounds like the perfect home for him as they have had rescues before and are familiar with the type of personality he has. Babee's bite is off, so she will be placed as a pet in the next couple of weeks with a friends sister who lost her aussie last year.

Early next year I will be getting in a puppy from Estonia. She is out of a bitch that was sired by Temora's American Express (Yankee). So Bully (CH Temora Bully For You) will be this little girls Great-Grandsire.
Her name is 'Syn' (pronounced 'Sin')

News From Abroad!
Anne Moilanen and Megi (Temora's Make a Memory) went to Riga, Lativa for 3 shows in 2 days, one being a Terrier Specialty.
Megi was competing for her JCAC and Crufts Qualification Award Card and won her class, got both prizes and was Best Bitch 2!
The same day was the Terrier Specialty and she was 2nd in her class with an 'Excellent'
Megi won her second JCAC and was again Best Bitch 2!
Congratulations to Anne and Megi!

Libby had 8 Puppies
4 Boys
4 Girls
All red but one b/t boy and one b/t girl
Mom and Babies are doing well & Dad is eating the cigars

Libby is close to whelping, she is trying to dig holes in my closet, but she can not get past the shoes! She tried to get under the bed, but can't squeeze her stomach past the frame. This can go on all day and night and preceeds whelping, so I am expecting her to whelp either tonight or tomorrow.

Remaining DNA is back on Sini and the Hertzler boy, both are by Rufus!
So of the 8, Rufus sired 6 and Bull sired 2, not exactly an even split, but it gave me what I wanted as far as a variety and decision of who to keep. (Of course all of this depends on if I read the DNA correctly, but once you follow the directions, it is pretty easy especially since Rufus and Bull are not related in any way)


HAVE THE DNA BACK on 6 of the 8 puppies!
So far we have the following:
Rufus has sired:
The two red boys of course
Also G Wynnes puppy boy (has a red collar)
J Dentons puppy girl (has a blue collar)
Bull has sired:
A Bjorks puppy girl (has a green collar)
W Howes puppy girl (has a red collar)
Still waiting on the girl I am keeping (Sini) and S Hertzlers boy
Will keep everyone posted!
Once I get them all back, it all goes back to AKC with all the DNA forms on puppies and sires and dam so they can be registered.
This has been a very long process, but well worth the wait and actually for me, very exciting!

UK/AM Champion Millvalley Red Rufus is the first EVER Dual Champion Australian Terrier! The Breeder of Rufus and the Historian for the U.K. have been researching this extensively and they have (double) confirmed that Rufus is the FIRST Australian Terrier to obtain not only his U.K. Championship but his AKC Championship as well!
How exciting to be part of this Historic Moment!

Spoke to AKC today, results are in for the DNA on Sirens litter, they have to sort through them and then the paperwork will be sent to me next week! Excited to see who is from whom!

For those that have emailed me to ask, yes, the photo on the front of Marge Reigniers website page (Crestwood Australian Terriers) is one I took. I was helping Marge get her website started with some good photos of her dogs:) There are more, she has not posted them as of yet.

Rufus took right to it, Mikki after a bit of thinking jumped right in and then we walked along the beach where Rufus found a dead carp on the sand and he decided that the 'Proper' thing to do was to roll on the dead fish!
