Hartnagle's Fritzie Taylor


Sire: Taylor's Whiskey
Dam: Taylor's Buena
Breeder: Joe Taylor
Owners: Elaine & Jeanne Joy Hartnagle

Based on Hud's supremacy, we purchased a female from the same cross. She was christened Hartnagle's Fritzie Taylor. Fritzie was the creme de la creme. Like Hud, Fritzie was a grinner.  Whenever you would walk into the house, she would greet you with a slipper, ball, magazine or whatever else was handy.

Fritzie had a gentle spirit until it came to handling rank stock.   She would so completely establish her authority with the swiftness of her movements that once she subdued the rebels, they made no further attempt to escape.

Four Blues

Fritzie absolutely loved our Mom.  The bond was so strong that, when it was time for Fritzie to whelp one of her litters, she would seek out our mother to be by her side.  It was like she waited for Mom to be present before she gave birth to a single puppy.

Fritzie continued in the tradition of producing beautiful, sound, working dogs that included many champions of record.  Fritzie made the ASCA Honor Roll of Conformation and Working Sires and Dams, and was bestowed with the prestigious Dog World Award for Canine Distinction for her outstanding offspring.  She was remarkable in every way.

One of the most successful crosses occurred between Fritzie Taylor and HOF Sire CH Las Rocosa Shiloh.  The cross was repeated on several occasions and invariably produced excellent results such as CH Las Rocosa Leslie CSD, CH Las Rocosa Ricky Taylor, CH Las Rojo Hombre, CH Las Rocosa Blue Brocade and Las Rocosa Rose, who are all found in the pedigrees of many famous bloodlines.

Fritzie is the dam of a number of the breeds' foundation individuals that include:
   - CH Las Rocosa Leslie CSD
   - CH Las Rocosa Ricky Taylor
   - CH Las Rocosa Rojo Hombre
   - CH Las Rocosa Blue Brocade
   - CH Las Rocosa Rose

all sired by Shiloh.
