Tanqueray was the #1 Saluki in obedience for '88, winning the ASA's Rancho Gabriel and Chamois perpetual trophies.

Ch Timaru Tequila


Tequila was a gorgeous shaded red and inherited the fluid easy movement of his sire's line with the soundness of his dam's. He finished his title at the '89 GBSC Specialty under Valerie Stringer of England.  His soft, faithful expression and  dignity coupled with a wonderfully intelligent, almost human personality made him a favorite of many. Tequila sired four litters, producing title holders in conformation, field and obedience. Owned by Mark Gladstone.

Ch. Timaru Napoeon

Napoleon spent the first several years of his life as the beloved pet of an acclaimed artist. We "borrowed" him for a weekend of shows and his debut in the ring resulted in winning the Open Dog class at the '90 PSSC Specialty and a Best of Breed over 7 Specials for a 5-point major the following day. When his owner tragically died, his show career began in earnest and he quickly finished his title, earning another 5-pt. major along the way. Bred once, he produced four champions.

Timaru Tuaca


Like her littermates, Kirsten was moderate, compact and very sound. As the beloved companion of a talented artist and craftswoman, she was rarely shown, preferring her life on the Russian River to the show ring. However, she had numerous major Reserves, including one at the 1990 ASA TSE at Del Valle and was major pointed with half her championship completed. Owned by Laura Longefellow.
