"Talent" aka "Tally"
03/26/2006 to 12/24/2018
Tally's name was a perfect fit for him. He was a talented dog and Maryann Conran explored many disciplines with Tally; he was successful in all of them. he was a beautiful dog in conformation and had a memorable floating trot to the very end, he was a gifted courser, obedint, friendly, loving and outgoing as evidneced by his many titles and ribbons. That partership creates a loving bond between canine and human.
Tally came to us as a 12 year old senior when Maryann passed away in February of 2018. He was left suddenly by the one person he'd known his whole life and thrust into a new home with a new pack. Tally took it all in stride, establishing himslef as "the boss" by laying in the walkway between our kitchen and family room. No one could pass except our tripod Yin. She got away with murder around Tally. Bravo and Dexter were forced to toe the line around the grand old man of the house.
In April of 2018, Tally was shown in a farewell appearance for Maryann at the Columbiana BCOA Trophy Supported Entry in Alabama, and won Best Veteran in Sweepstakes at 12 years of age. It was a 5 point major in dogs and bitches both days, yet Tally claimed the Ribbons both days.
Tally was a kisser. He greeted me every morning with kisses. He followed Joe everywhere. If Joe went to the barn, Tally went, if Joe went upstaris, Tally went. Those two formed a fast bond that was special to see. Despite only living with us for 10 months, Tally wrapped himself around our hearts, and we were blessed to have him in our lives.
We miss Talent. He was a very special boy.
