Travis - Debbeacol Born To Boogie
Coalacre Cruisin To Snikkles JW x Ch Debbeacol Pride And Joy JW
Travis was born on the same date as his mum Elsa - August 2013.
He was one of 4 puppies born, needed a little help in being welcomed into the world due to his size and was joined in his litter by 2 boys and 1 girl. Having only ever kept bitches it was a straight forward decision for me to keep the girl, but for some reason my eye kept coming back to Travis.
After much deliberation and advice from friends and family I took the decision to start a new era in my life with beardies and Travis joined our family much to my husbands delight as he will now have some male company in our home.
Travis - Showing
Travis started his show career in February 2014 when he tried his hand (or should it be paw) at a few open shows. He did very well and enjoyed it enormously gaining many Best Puppy in Breed (BPIB) awards along the way.
He entered his first Championship show at Scottish Breeds at the end of March and qualified for Crufts 2015 straight away. He is continuing to travel with his sister Hannah to shows, herself a Champion, and has a lot to live up to... no pressure Travis.
Below is a small collection of photographs we have taken so far of Travis and his continuing success in the ring.

His first show at Birtley. Dont think he was quite sure what was happening but went BPIB and puppy group 2.
Picture taken at SKC in May when Travis went Best Puppy Dog in Breed. Very good size and shape. Excellent expression. Good topline and tail. Moved a bit close behind. Good type. Good eye colour. Good coat.- Judge Mark James

Border Union 2014. Travis - Debbeacol Born To Boogie...10 month old slate dog who has a pleasing head and expression. He has a reasonable forequarter angulation and his chest is correctly shaped. Well ribbed back. His topline held on the move. Moved cleanly coming and going, but lost out on side gait.- Judge Pam Griffiths
