Tooshay Pomeranians was founded in 2008. However, I fell in love with this breed in 1970, after meeting my next door neighbour, Mrs Yarwood who bred and showed Pomeranians in Rockhampton, under the Prefix of “Haughty”. Mrs Yarwood’s show dog back in 1970 was: Haughty Tiny Star (72450) whelped 2/2/1969 Sire n Dam: Astral Our Desire X Haughty But Beautiful.
I am devoted to producing and exhibiting top quality Pomeranians, and I am very gratified to have bred and owned many champions. I do, and always will, strive for… Excellence in the Breed. This is not an easy feat as this breed is commonly known as “The Heartbreaker” breed for many various reasons.
I have bred just a few litters during my time in Pomeranians. Like many in this difficult breed, I have encountered problems along the way, but put this behind me and look forward to a bright future. My Pomeranians are a huge part of my life, and live as such. I remain a boutique kennel, keeping limited numbers and am situated in Central Queensland, Australia.
Tooshay has attained records and awards, including… BEST IN SHOW at all breeds shows with my home-bred dog, Australian Champion Tooshay The Columbian. The list of Awards continues on with numerous Class In Show wins both locally and while exhibiting in the Northern Territory, NSW and at Toy Dog Shows and Pomeranian Speciality Shows. I have also been chosen to canvass Pomeranians owned by others. Most of these dogs come to me as baby puppies and are trained, handled and presented as show dogs from this tender age. They are provided a place in our home, with us and in our hearts. These consignments are usually for a 12 month period (or longer).
For any newcomers to showing dogs, I highly recommend attending as many dog shows as possible, and joining both your local and national breed club. I became the founding President of the Central Queensland Toy Dog Club and enjoyed this role. I am also an active committee member with our local kennel club and I am a current member of the only Breed Speciality Club for Pomeranians in Australia, the NSW Pomeranian Club. I was able to attend my first NSW Pomeranian Club Speciality Show held in Sydney in 2009, another unforgettable experience that confirmed we do have many top rated Pomeranians here in Australia!
2012 was a sad year for me in that I had a terrible misfortune with my beloved Pip “Multi Runner-up Best In Show, CH. Cupidtown Gold n Chance”. Who, after his having a procedure under general anaesthetic, required the amputation of his eye, caused by op complications. I was devastated, and this ended a very promising show career at the young age of two and a half! Although this happened some time ago, it is still heart-breaking to remember. To this day, Pip lives with me as my loving, loyal companion and is King of his kingdom.
