Tyra has won many hearts around the globe. She is the daughter of my stunning herding group winning CH Kesca Pipers Sunset Melody 'Ava', from her last and final litter to "Hottie", Am Grand CH Bayshore's Hot Chocolate at Avatar HIC, this makes her a half brother to the biggest winning Border Collie of all time in the USA, "Slick" who is also a half sibling to our own Harlow, Heronwood White Hot Chocolate of Bellaclan. Tyra is line bred on CH Borderfame Choc Chill (sire of over 50 titles progeny!). 


Tyra is all personality. She is a total snuggle bug and is always giving kisses to everyone. She is not scared of anything and she has everyone charmed and wrapped around her perfect paws. "Tyreezy" or "T-Bear" does everything in life full speed. We had to work hard to teach Tyra to keep all four paws on the ground in order to show her, thus she had a slow start to her show career...she is notoriously on two legs, or completely in the air! Tyra more then made up for this, she is smart as a whip, biddable, funny, a bit naughty (just enough) and the sweetest most loyal girl one could ask for! With all that being said her most important job is being my much loved companion, I love her as if I had birthed her myself.


She is beautifully built with stunning angles both front and rear, lovely bone, and finished off with the sweetest strong face. She is a strong bitch with plenty of bone, who naturally stands four square.Tyra finished her championship title with three majors and winning BOB over specials for her last points. She won multiple group placements from the classes along the way as well as being top ten ranked BC in the country in both 2014 and 2015 and finished her Canadian Grand Championship swiftly with multiple large major wins undefeated for the breed! Tyra showed at the 2015 US National in the bred-by sweeps where she went 4th in a very large bred by class, full of US specials. She continued to win 4th in her class at both the National and the Regional over the weekend, all completely out of coat and acting foolish because she was coming into season.

Tyra has SEVEN Champion progeny to her name, one being the youngest Champion of all time, and another being the very first smooth coated Champion in Canadian history. Her other daughter is a Multi Group Winner also going BOS at the 2021 American National Specialty!

Tyra is currently working on her rally obedience titles.


Thank you to Hottie's owners; J. Frank Baylis of Bayshore Kennels, Stacey Eineck of Avatar Kennels, and to Hottie's handler, Kim Halcom, for making Tyra a possibility and taking such good care of Ava! XOXO
