My Buddy, TATE, Retires

What can someone say about a true friend and buddy that has been by one's side almost 24/7 for the last two and half years? So many great memories and thoughts about the time you've spent together rush through your mind and they just make you smile.

It was a great ride, my BUD, and I am at a loss for words about how I feel now that you're retiring and going home to your mother tomorrow. Without question, I'll miss you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your days as you should after such an outstanding show career that ends at the ripe age of 5 1/2 years old.

What a proud moment.

To be able to announce a retirement for such a wonderful dog with a great career. Great job Jay.

Diane--Barb Morgan is Tate's mama!!---

I saw Harriette at the Cleveland show this weekend-she brought her bullie for Barb to show. She's doing better these days, which is really good news.

Jay, Congratulations and who is................

Tate's mother that he will be going home to? Just curious because I live by Barb. Did you once post that Barb's sister was ill? Hope she is doing well. Again, congrats on the sweet ride with Tate.

Such a beautiful boy he is!!---

Jay, I was just talking to Barb up in Cleveland today, & she said she was going to be picking up Tate tomorrow. I didn't realize it was because he is being retired; but I know that he will be one happy,spoiled bullie.
You've done a fantastic job handling him, & I'm sure you'll miss him very much.

It was a joy to watch his accomplishments...

Thanks for keeping the board included in Tate's career. It has been a joy all the way from Ontario, Canada to watch.
Great job Jay! Enjoy the memories you have made with such a stunning boy.

Happy Retirement Tate

Jay, I know you're going to be a little sad to see Tate go home. You two have had a wonderful ride. I'm sure Tate will settle in nicely as a couch potato.

Special thanks to Jessica Pangilinan, Linda Borden and Ron Villafuerte (Mestiso's Pet Spa) for all your support through Tate's show career with me. We couldn't have done it without you.
