Tally! The little Welsh Wizard that casts his Welshie spell on all he meets.

We watched a beautiful Welshie win Best in Group at Crufts & we knew we just had to have one for ourselves. We had instantly fallen in love with the stunning little red & white Spaniels form Wales! However, we wanted one that was related to this Crufts winner, or, at the very least, it had to resemble the one we had fallen love with. To cut a long story short, we discovered that the lovely 'Oscar' (Supreme Champion Shandwick Raffles (imp UK) had arrived in Australia & was now in Brisbane, Queensland. We contacted Bev & Bruce Cornish of Ricochez Kennels & 'Oscar' had been mated to 'Belle' (Champion Goldmaid Dutch Treat), & after the longest 4 month wait our first little Welsh Dragon Mittens landed saftly at the airport & away we went ~ headlong into the crazy, wriggling, wonderful, sometimes frustrating but very waggy world of the merry Welsh Springer Spaniel!
 
 
Tally is the spitting image of his father Oscar, & those who were lucky enough to have met his sire see the resemblance immediately. Dazzled by his glorious red & white jacket & cheeky personality he had soon taken over our hearts. He settled in a treat & we were thrilled from the start with our Welsh beastie. With his perfect 'leaf shaped' ears, very correct proportions, absolutely breath taking head & front, coupled with his classic & correct Welshie 'movement' it is no wonder that Tally is a very consistent winner in the show ring. A straighter moving dog you will NOT find anywhere & his 'topline' never ever falters on the move. Judges comment on this & admire his 'true' gait constantly. It really does have to be seen to be believed! You could literally put a glass of water on his back as he trots around & not one drop would spill!
 
Holding a current ANKC Height card ~ Tally stands at just under 48cms/19 ins at the withers, which is pretty much spot on according to the ANKC Satandard. Being so correct & with such impeccable breeding behind him (plus a good dash of unique Welshie humour, attitude & pure class), it was no surprise that Tally ~ at a very young age ~ soon put his breed well on truly on the Top End doggy map. It can be hard enough to win anything at all, let alone with a rare breed, & Tally always turns heads when ever he steps out ~ whether it be into the show ring, the Trial ring or at any public occasion. He has converted quite a few now & the Welsh Springer Spaniel breed has gained quite a few more new fans, lovers & enthusiasts, all thanks to our beautiful 'Talyessin Llewellyn~Jones'!
 
He is definitely top dog here amongst the furry members of our family, strutting around & making sure no one ignores him! His funny little ways, his indignant expression should anyone dare pat or fuss another dog before HIM & the fact that he HATES his routine messed up, constantly reminds us that we are sharing our lives with a little Welsh STAR! 
 
Starting him in Obedience, Rally Obedience & Tracking Trials has been like a breath of fresh air & Tally has to be the most enthusiastic little Welshie in the world as he just LOVES training ~ he just wants to please. In spite of his awful human handler he is consistently being scored highly in the Trial rings, already obtaining 2 Obedience titles & 3 Rally Obedience titles & he is well on his way to his next. He thrilled us (again) in his first year of Trial competition, as his fabulous results & placings were rewarded with a prestigious Obedience Gundog of the Year award ~ he backed this up in 2013 by winning it again! Tally has also received his first Pass in Tracking & we are hoping he will be the proud holder of a Tracking Title as well.
 
MInd you, it hasn't always been plain sailing s it did take him quite a while to get over his WSS 'reserved' stge in the ring! The WSS can be stand offish with strangers. It also took him 18 months to start eating properly (WSS can also be prone to this annoying trait but most of them grow out of it by 18 months),  & he is a real piggy for his food now & likes anything he can get his velvety chops around  ~ in fact, we now have to watch he doesn't get too fat!
