I zeroed in on Tattoo when he was 7 weeks old and after much ado finally convinced breeder Deborah Rateau to allow him to come live with me.  Starting with his first point, Tattoo won the points 10 times out of the 13 times he stepped in the ring- finishing at 15 months in a whirlwind of three back-to-back-to-back majors in a 26 hour period, including two at specialty shows!

Tattoo is very smooth, with a lovely front assembly, chiseled headpiece and clean, balanced movement.  He is currently training in utility obedience.
