Am Can Ch Empire’s Paper Moon

Tatum made her debut as a puppy going Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at the BC All Terrier Club Specialty in June, 1998. Shown by both Norley and Vicki, Tatum finished quickly and was given a brief Specials career earning multiple Group placements in tough West Coast competition, closing out 1999 as #12 M.S. in Canada. Taken to the US for a test run on the Brush Prairie circuit and entered in only 2 of the 4 shows, Tatum won back to back 3 pt majors breeder/owner handled. Back down to the January, 2000 shows Tatum picked up a 3rd major (4 points). Needing 4 single points to complete her US title, Tatum ventured to the Yakima circuit at the end of April, 2000. She garnered 2 points the first day and a 3 point major the third day, completing her US title with 4 majors. Left in the classes to hold the major, she also went RWB on the fifth and last day.Tatum was always shown by her breeders/owners Vicki & Norley.
