Tule (pronounced "TOO-lee") is a product of a long planned and much anticipated breeding between our very special girl Taryn and NFC/FC/AFC Shambo's Dark Shadow. After Taryn's severe illness from actinomycosis in 2007, we were afraid she might not be able to conceive again. But the next year she did, and gave us 6 puppies by Shadow. This little pup with the silly white-tipped ears soon stole my heart with her independent spirit and her mother's mannerisms. She was a precocious little girl who earned the distinction of becoming Taryn's first winning offspring. Tule's registered name comes from an Irish whiskey, Tullamore Dew, and her call name from the tule fog that's well known around where I grew up in California.

Tule began her competitive career at the 2008 ABC National Specialty show by winning her Sweepstakes class at 6 months & 1 week old under breeder-judge Teresa Richmond. She earned her first field trial placements in the spring of 2009, finishing out the season by winning 1st place in Open Puppy for her puppy points in April. She began the fall season by winning her Derby points in a 20 dog Open Derby stake, with a spectacular pheasant find. Tule had an "extended vacation" after breaking a toe at summer camp in 2010 (which put her training on hold), but she was finally ready to compete as an adult in the fall of 2012. Tule has had one litter, born January 2013 by Ch. Warbonnet's Orion In The Big Sky, JH. Their son, Ch. Alar's Double Shot of Tequila JH, "Zeke" finished his show title easily in the summer of 2014. Tule returned to the show ring in 2015, having taken a back seat to her sisters in previous years, and finished up her show championship just after turning 7 years old. She completed a full litter of Championship titled dogs out of Shadow & Taryn! Tule is now retired but enjoys being the "house dog" and teaching puppies how to run and finds birds, if they can keep up with her!
