Multiple BISS CH. TIBROKE'S NOTHIN' LEFT TO IMAGINE, ROMX
As well as being of the top show dogs in the breed, Wyatt is also one of the top producing sires - producing consistent winning puppies with his love of life and the show ring.
On December 1, 2006, Wyatt turned seven years old, making him eligible for Veteran's competition. He went back to Texas in March for the 2007 TSCA National Specialty and, under breeder-judge Richard Jeffery, was awarded BEST VETERAN and BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX! It sure made the long drive down and back worth it.
During the fall and winter of 2007, Wyatt again enjoyed his retirement but still loved life and continued to look great. The 2008 Tibetan Spaniel Club of American National Specialty was being held in March in Albany, Oregon. Bill and I decided to make this trip Wyatt's grand finale in competing in the show ring. Flying across the country, with Wyatt under the seat in his sherpa bag, was no problem for him- he simply slept. Once we got to Oregon, it seemed that Wyatt knew that he was on center stage. Entering the ring under judge Mr. Everett Dean, Wyatt showed his heart out for me - I can remember only once or twice that he performed the way he did that day. He was awarded first in the Veteran Dog Class and then entered the ring with all the specials. Mr. Dean made cuts, narrowing down the number of dogs remaining in competition and Wyatt and I remained in the ring each time. After another go-round, Mr. Dean motioned Wyatt to the front of the line and took us around the ring a final time before pointing to Wyatt as his Best of Breed winner. What an incredible way to end his career - a day I will never forget.
