About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Tips Daddy....Tip

MPT2134 MPT1F2 MPT11B3 MPT2044

The past two years we have been we have spoken to him after the shows, I know he saw us, so we thought we would be the bigger person and speak. We also were amazed that Tip was still alive and looking good.

Nothing big said, just how are things and whatnot.

Tip's dad was a pretty dog also. Too bad the owner turned out like he has. If you go back this year and he is still living maybe you can get some more pictures of him and ask how he is doing and how old he is now. Thanks for sharing this interesting story. Hugs, Helen

Kelly I enjoyed the history on Tip.  He's an amazing dog.  That too bad about the man you bought Tip from.  It really sounds like your show was better than his & he was worried about the fair people asking you to take his place.  If that happened he wouldn't receive his beloved money.   It sounds like that is what he was afraid of.  Too bad for Tip also.....I know he enjoyed doing the show.

Nice pictures of Tips Papa.  He is a pretty boy.  Good for you, taking the high road and talking to the guy after the show.  I've liked reading about Tip, great entries.

Tips Daddy looks more like a smooth collie type.  Linda
