Pipelyne Tiger Lily
We purchased our first girl Pipelyne Tiger Lily (Lily) from Erika & Hayden Harrison of Pipelyne Staffordshire Bull Terriers ten years ago as a pet. Little did we know that Lily would become a valuable family member and our foundation bitch. Erika asked if she could show Lily and as this was a new world to us we went along with excitement. Lily enjoyed her first adventure in the show ring but was a naughty little girl for Erika. Leon suggested that as I was trying to train Lily at home that at the next show I should take her into the ring. This is where our love for showing began. We must thank Erika & Hayden as if it wasn't for their little girl we wouldn't have the passion we have today for the breed.
Aust Champion Taino Painted Chief
We were extremely lucky to have bred 'Barney' (Aust Ch Taino Painted Chief) in our first litter. Barney arrived into this world with nothing but charisma. Barney is an absolute pleasure to show and just loves the show ring. Let's just say there is never a dull moment with Barney around. He has personality plus and thinks the world is his. Barney's brother Bear (Taino Purple Rain) went to live with the McCullough family - Andrew, Tanya, Caragh and Hannah, who have become close friends. The McCullough family had Tanya's brother Victor Alberts paint this extraordinary picture of Barney for us. This painting will be treasured forever.
This amazing breed has become a major part of our lives and we hope that we enjoy many more years of laughter and fun with these guys who are our family.
