RICKY

About Ricky


Cedar River Top Gun of Tudorose

Birth date 09/29/2012

ricky-and-rhodi

Ricky won best of breed his first time in the ring.  He now has 35 points toward his UKC Championship and we look forward to seeing him competing again.  He has beautiful movement and a natural ‘self stack.’  Both of which are testaments to his excellent structure.

At three years old, Ricky still has a few years of coat ‘clearing’ before we know his true color.  I suspect that he will be a ‘gun metal grey’ like his father and grand father.

Ricky has a wonderful temperament that allows him to mingle with all types of dogs; young puppies, the elderly, the exuberant or pushy.  His very appropriate response to obnoxious pestering by over exuberant puppies is to either engage in play or gently ignore.  He is a real clown and has a great sense of humor.  His energy is boundless but knows when to settle down.   I’ve had the privilege of getting to know him by having him live with me for a weeks here and there.  He was a little bit of a mama’s boy and pouted for the first day but soon bounced into the rhythm of our household.  He slept on the bed with me and the girls, played out in the yard and proved himself to be a gentleman.

Ricky has earned 2 of the 3 wins with competition necessary to complete his UKC championship.  He has a natural ‘stack’ which highlights his lovely structure and balance.  We hope to finish this October but in the mean time he’s following in his mother’s footsteps doing field training.

RICKY’S MOM

Tudorose Henrietta Anne


Ricky’s Mom is now 12 and still going strong.  I’ve known Dixie since she was a puppy.  She has always been a ‘pistol’ and true to all Tudorose dogs, loves all people and animals.  We call her the Dixie Chick.  She is a very accomplished girl having earned multiple hunting titles and her herding instinct test.  She was shown briefly in Canada and earned a number of points toward her Canadian Championship.  She was retired from the show ring due to her size.  She is only 22 inches and not a preferred size for the ring.  Besides that, she prefers to run in the woods and swim.

On top of the titling that Dixie has done she’s participated in a whole variety of dog sports and activities.  There’s probably nothing that Dixie can’t do.


Here are a few of Ricky’s puppies from several different litters
