Beginnings...

  This month our Beginnings Story is by B.J. McDonald of Frisco City, Alabama.  BJ is very well known for her Toy Fox Terriers and is a Toy Fox Terrier and Multi-Breed Judge.

 

In the late 1930's I was a teenager living on a farm with my parents in Magnolia, Mississippi.  We had various small terrier type dogs, black and white and some all black with tan markings on the face.  Registered dogs were rare at this time, but a neighbor ordered a pair of registered Toy Fox Terriers from Michigan.  They were shipped in a wooden crate by freight, rail I think.  I thought they were the most beautiful pups I had ever seen.  Needless to say, I still think they are the best.

 

I had an unregistered black and white male with tan markings on the face who was our family pet and my son's friend.  When my children were growing up, he guarded the children when they were in the yard playing and slept with my son at night.  He found a small mostly white-bodied female, who looked a lot like him, and brought her home as his wife.  We raised some nice pups and my children learned about the "birds and bees."

 

In the 1970's, a friend gave me a UKC registered Toy Fox Terrier who she had bought from a pet store.  The poor thing was scared to death and totally un-socialized.  I learned a good lesson about pet shops at this time.  After a long time, months, she and I became buddies and she was very possessive of me.  I found the breeder's name on the papers and contacted Verdie Barnes of Zavalla, Texas.  We are still friends till this day.  When I visited her, she showed me the BLOODLINES, magazine and I was hooked.

 

I bought a pair of Toy Fox Terriers from Verdie and when I had a pup old enough, I attended my first show in Bryan, Texas hosted by Ed and Ila Williamson.  Wonderful people and they helped me so much.  My puppy won a trophy in the second show on Sunday, only one in the class, which was wonderful to me...  I floated home on air.

 

I attended shows when I could, sometimes with a bunch of other people to share expenses and sometimes alone or with a family member.  The shows were my hobby and my pleasure.  I never got the "empty nest syndrome" because I had my dogs and the shows and the wonderful show crowd.  The number of Judges was limited at the time and the pay was nil, so I decided to become a Judge to help the clubs out.  I apprenticed under Dovie Gideon, Ed Williamson and a man who had been judging for a long time and lived in the San Angelo are.  I cannot remember his name and most of the people who would know it are gone.  In 1977, I became a Senior UKC Toy Fox Terrier Judge - a proud day.  I wish I had kept a record of all the shows I have judged, but too late now.

 

My first puppy to win a trophy and my National Grand Champion (1998) are the highlights of my dog showing career and with all the others in between filling my life with pleasure.  I have had several Champions, but Precious Jeffery of Phoenix is the only Grand Champion I ever had.  I flew with him to Wisconsin and he won National Grand Champion class with 23 other Grand Champions competing, under Judge Jeri Singleton in August of 1998.  What a once-in-a-lifetime thrill for me.  My Black Tail Puppy is the best natured and the happiest TFT in my house.  He sired many pups; some show dogs but mostly precious pets.  Not a lot of difference if you think about it.

 

We still have a number of old dogs and a few young ones.  All are a joy to an old lady, but the time to retire for all of us is drawing close.  I truly have enjoyed "my kids."  They have me well trained.

Dear Friends,

I am delighted to tell you all that on September 2, 2006, I finished the AKC Championship on my home-bred and owner-handled CH. Oreos Are Trouble Of Lisark! This would never have been possible without the help and support of my friend and mentor BJ McDonald and her marvelous stud dog NGRCH GRCH 'PR' Precious Jeffrey Of Phoenix. BJ has had the patience of Job and the charity of an angel to put up with me and help guide me along the way of raising some wonderful Toy Fox Terriers.

The first Toy Fox Terrier I ever knew was a little farm dog of my grandfather's who had a pure-bred litter of 5 TFTs. That was 58 years ago and I was 7 years old. I had so much fun playing with the puppies that I never forgot them.

We did not get a family dog until I was ten years old. Rover was a Rough Coated Collie who was our pal and guardian for thirteen years. He helped mom and dad raise us and keep us from harm's way.

After I married, I raised and showed some Poodles and German Shepherd Dogs. It wasn't until I was in my 50s that I bought my first TFT. Her name was Snuggles. She came from a puppy mill outside of Saint Louis. Snuggles was a tiny girl and she was very shy, but for us, she was wonderful. She gave us every blessing a TFT could give and we all loved her. Snuggles lived to be 19 1/2 years old.

After Snuggles died, I bought a granddaughter of BJ's famous National Grand Champion. Her name is Bebe Dora Of Lisark. I was showing Bebe and wanted to breed her and have a litter if puppies. I soon found BJ living just 75 miles north of Pensacola. That was the beginning of not only a wonderful friendship, but also the opportunity to finally learn about these precious dogs.

Bebe was bred to her grandfather and had two puppies. Only Oreo survived and BJ guided me along every step of her upbringing. Oreo is my pride and joy and now that she is an AKC champion, I feel confident that I will be able to breed and raise wonderful Toy Fox Terriers for my own enjoyment and the delight of families seeking one of these grand dogs.

Oreo has already produced a White and Tan girl named 'PR' Olive The Gingerbread Girl. We call her Taffy! TAFFY FINISHED HER UKC CHAMPIONSHIP ON SEPT. 1, 2007. 

I now have 10 TFTs and a Standard Poodle named Casey Jones. All the TFTs sleep in bed with me and Casey guards us all to makes sure we are safe. I plan to breed two to four litters a year and will always be looking for the best of homes for my precious ones. They are born in my kitchen and raised inside my home with every care I am able to provide them. We are now using the techniques of Cesar Millan, the dog whisperer and the help of Casey Jones, our standard poodle, in raising our TFT puppies. 

If you are interested in owning one of my puppies, please write me.

Sincerely,

Barbara Mathews


In Memory of Rhett Butler:

Here is a picture of Rhett Butler Of Lisark....he was our great watchdog, guardian angel and most patient TFT pal!!! He put up with us all valiantly and was a wonderful friend and will not be forgotten!

He was not a show dog and had never sired a puppy, but he helped raise the TFT puppies and loved them all.

Rhett is greatly missed!
